"The key statement in this article is "houses across the so-called Green Line marking the borders before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war". That Green Line means exactly jack squat."
There is of course the myth & reality of Israel which is based entirely on whether one believes Israel the modern state which unilaterally declared statehood in 1948 has a Biblical claim to "Greater Israel" or not.
One must remember the UN resolution which "created" Israel not only also created an independent Arab state but declared a "Special International Regime for the City of Jerusalem" as well.
The Arab League of Nations rejected the partition which Israel interpreted as nullifying the UN declared borders.
Eretz-Israel was created by declaration of the World Zionist Organization on the expiration of the British Mandate for Palestine.
From that point forward myth overshadows reality & facts on the ground continually lay claim to Israel as a state which lies within its historic borders.
The settlements are illegal under international law, it is not anti-Semitic to state facts.
Countries routinely violate international law, the US included, what remains to be seen is what the world will do to the violators.
Of course under the law of victor gets to keep the territory why did we dispute Iraq's taking of Kuwait or send troops to defend a monarchy?
The US gives billions of dollars to Israel, but it is not actual money but rather grants of military equipment to keep the wheels of the military industrial complex greased.
Remember the USS Liberty before you call Israel our ally.
