Twilight Of The Israeli Imperialists
A Palestinian boy watches over camels in front of the illegal under international law, West Bank Jewish outpost of Maale Adumim, constructed on Israeli-colonized, historically Palestinian land, near Jerusalem, August 7, 2008.
President Obama has now called for a contiguous State of Palestine. Such a call should not force Palestinians to abandon any historical West Bank lands illegally seized and colonized by Israel, or force Palestinians to accept land-swaps for poorer quality, marginal land, as proposed by Israel. Israel is free to grow naturally within its internationally-recognized borders, as determined by the United Nations in 1948. The Palestinian West Bank is not Israel's Lebensraum.
