To those that justify Israel's actions on religious grounds this is what I would have to say:
God said THOU SHALL NOT COVET; God said THOU SHALL NOT KILL; God said THOU SHALL NOT STEAL; God said THOU SHALL NOT WORSHIP FALSE IDOLS; God said THOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST A NEIGHBOR -
Israel is breaking the above commandments - that is my opinion. Israel covets Palestinian lands; Israel kills Palestinians; Israel steals Palestinian lands; Israel makes of the land a FALSE IDOL; Israel bears false witness against her Palestinian neighbors when it falsely argues that Palestinian land is theirs by divine right. And anyone who justifies it is breaking God's commandments by bearing false witness to Israel's crimes against the Palestinian people.
