[quote:MindShaft:MV8yMDUzMDM2XzM0NTA3MzYyXzlEQTVGRjEz] [quote:for sale 25436932:MV8yMDUzMDM2XzM0NTA3MjM5Xzc2QzJCOEU5] Jewish organizations often offered to purchase the land from the wealthy owners for more than the actual value of the area. The Jewish land purchasers paid extraordinarily high prices for the uncultivated and marsh land. During a visit to Palestine in 1930, John Hope Simpson, a British politician, noticed: "They [Jews] paid high prices for the land, and in addition they paid to certain of the occupants of those lands a considerable amount of money which they were not legally bound to pay". It was believed that Jews were paying as much as $1,000 to $1,100 per acre in Palestine for non arable land in 1944. At that same time, one could buy rich arable land in Iowa for a mere $110 per acre. Huge tracts of land were purchased by Jews in the 1920s but in the next decade large tracts of uncultivated land were simply not available. Therefore in the 1930s most of the land were bought from small landowners. Of the land that the Jews bought, "52.6% of the lands were bought from big non-Palestinian landowners, 24.6% from Palestinian-Arab landowners and only 9.4% from the Fellahin". By 1943, Jews had paid $560,000,000 for nearly 400,000 acres, amounting to around 6% of the land. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_land_purchase_in_Palestine [/quote] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balfour_declaration Believe who you will.

Why?! Are you one one them? If so, why do you care to defend Isreal? Is it because of what you see and hear on Fox?
