Letters to the Editor

Israeli history

The letter by Alice Christy on Sept. 7, Israel’s land grab ‘illegal’ erroneously claims that “Israel has no right to claim land acquired after 1967.”

What she fails to understand is that Israel won the entire West Bank from Jordan in the Six Day War in 1967.

When Israel made peace with Jordan, any and all land questions were settled with the losing side, Jordan, at that time.

While the Arabs, now called Palestinians, can try to claim land they never owned for their state, Jordan never offered it to them while it ruled the West Bank (1948-1967).

The claim by Christy is historically inaccurate and false.
