Does the Israel of today with so much usurped land have the same moral right to existance as the smaller Israel of it's conception?
Do the Palestinians have a right to land that was was earmarked to them but is now fully usurped and occupied by Israel?
The whole situation is a mess and there will never be peace just degrees of violence and the worse the deal the Palestinians get and the more they are cornered the greater the resentment.
