I refer you to the B'Tselem report on the matter land expropriation.
This is just business as usual, a great many legimitate land owners (with title and everything) have been simply stripped of their property.
Israel has structured the entire legal system for the occupied territories in such a way as to enable the expropriation of Arab-owned land in favor of Jews.

I recommend reading the full report at the bottom. I know noone ever does.

I read the report and I do not see any references to Israel "stealing" anyone's legally owned land. There's not a single mention of Palestinians with legally binding deeds having these deeds ignored and land stolen. All settlements were never built on previously developed land. Doesn't that mean anything to you?

If they are the rightful owners, where are their deeds? I have mine. I do recall a court case involving this very issue where the Palestinian family had deeds, guess who won that round?
