NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces confiscated Palestinian land in the northern West Bank on Sunday, a Palestinian official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that the Israeli Civil Administration seized four dunams (one acre) of land in the al-Wafra area between the villages of Burin, Tal, and Madma south of Nablus.

The confiscation will prevent Palestinian residents from reaching 300 dunams (74 acres) of their land, Daghlas said, without elaborating.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

How can you confiscate something that yours already?

Dear E, I'm thinking of getting 'my' people (Anglo-Saxons) together and going to northern Germany and Denmark and taking huge amounts of land away from the people who live there now. After all, my people lived there 1500 years ago so we're entitled to it. Does that sound ridiculous? Well, the Jewish claims to Palestine sound equally ridiculous.

Dear ruth. Everybody has the right to have fantasies including you. Nablus is in the west bank which was part of jordan so this fake fantasies about palestine are onlyy fantasies. Don't compare real countries like germany and denmark to 'palestine' which never existed

To Ruth #2: 'Dear E, I'm thinking of getting 'my' people (Anglo-Saxons) together and going to northern Germany and Denmark and taking huge amounts of land away from the people who live there now.' Hey. Why stop there? Concoct a fantasy your ancestors inhabited Palestine and go take that.

To E #3: ' Don't compare real countries like germany and denmark to 'palestine' which never existed' As a geographical and cultural entity, 'Palestine' has existed since Assyrian times. Germany didn't exist except as a geographical and cultural expression before 1870 either. Why is it real, and 'Palestine' not?
