Who stole the land in the first place and keeps on building on occupied territory? Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention clearly states that transfer of population to occupied territory is illegal under international law.
Despite this, about 500,000 Israeli settlers live illegally on occupied Palestinian land with the support of Israel's government. Which country holds the record by far for the most UN resolutions broken? Israel! Who invented modern terrorism by bombing the King David Hotel killing 92 and wounding 58? Which country has effectively legalized torture despite being a State Party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Convention against Torture?
All prime ministers of Israel could be classified as mass murderers, but Ariel Sharon would come out with flying colors. He is known as 'Butcher of Sabra and Shatila' refugee camps in Beirut in 1982 for the murder of 3,000-3,500 innocent people.
Supporting Israel and its actions is deplorable and anyone who does is very misguided and misinformed.
