The process employed in taking control of land breaches the basic principles of due procedure and natural justice. In many cases, Palestinian residents were unaware that their land was registered in the name of the state, and by the time they discovered this fact, it was too late to appeal. The burden of proof always rests with the Palestinian claiming ownership of the land. Even if he meets this burden, the land may still be registered in the name of the state on the grounds that it was transferred to the settlement "in good faith.”

Show me examples. Many can mean 2, 3 dozen or hundreds. Why aren't they in the superior court waving their deeds? Like I said, I recall reading about this very same issue where the Palestinians displayed proper ownership and the court ruled in their favor.

I am not saying they shouldn't get the land simply from a legal standpoint, they should simply for living there for so long. As part of a future peace settlement, i am sure they'll get. My only beef is with the "stealing" business.

you also fail to see my "field adjacent to your home" analogy.
