Personal musings on Israel, Jewish matters, history and how they all affect each other
A very interesting report. Its an insoluble problem in my view.However a pilpul type question is this: If Jews are entitled to return to property lost or abandoned before 1948 or before 1967, should Arabs ( even Israeli citizens) be allowed to return to claim property abandoned or claim compensation , say, in Downtown Haifa or in Jerusalem?
It is important to note that large numbers of Jews, including non-religous ones, visit Hevron, particulary during the holidays. We visit there every Hol HaMoed. I have the greatest admiration for the Jews who live there. There will be no chance of peace in Israel until Jews can live in peace in Hevron.
As noted by Michael, the Israeli soldiers generally do not have a nice time in Hebron, with the Jews or the Arabs. This was the experience of our son a few years ago too. Things improved a bit when our daughter was stationed there.IMHO the whole city should have been turned into an open mental institution years ago. The vast majority of the both populations are bonkers. They are all in need serious mental attention.
The vast majority of the both populations are bonkers. and the question what is egg and what is chicken be damned???
