Many people do not know that the place where Joshua crossed first the Jordan river into Canaan (the West Bank), is where many Jews have lived for centuries, even if they are Muslim, and that most of the Israelis who are stealing their land are non-Jews. If it is 'illegal' to do so, why does America continue to send billions a year in 'welfare' checks to Israel?

"Israel has announced plans to build 1,500 new settlement homes in East Jerusalem, the part of the city occupied by Israel in 1967 but claimed by Palestinians, just hours after it freed 26 Palestinian prisoners as part of a deal to restart peace talks.

What is a Muslim Jew? Isn't that an oxymoron?

You do realize that the Jewish and Palestinian government doesn't want peace... I let them fight it out and the victor declared and then they all get absorb into one nation... then we'll let the healing begin otherwise, nothing ever changes...

Judaism is more than a religion, its a family.

In regards to this, there appears to have been a deal of releasing Palestinian prisoners (many of whom are convicted murderers) in exchange for allowing Israel to build more settlements (a majority of which might very well be in areas which Israel intends to keep in a final future peace deal).

Also, in regards to international law, I want to point out that AFAIK the United States has sometimes/often violated international law as well.

No, you can have 'Muslim' Jews, 'Mormon' Jews, 'Buddhist' Jews, 'Christian' Jews, etc. Being Jewish is simply belonging to a certain bloodline. It has nothing to do with an accepted or practiced belief system.

The ultimate Muslim Jew was Mohammed himself who as a youg man learned to read and write from Jewish scholars in a place called Mecca. When the Romans destroyed Judea in 79 AD and ethnically cleansed the place before renaming it Syria Palestra (ever wonder where the name Palestine came from). Jews that were not slaughtered or enslaves by Rome fled to the East to the Parthan Empire, Central Asia (The Khazars or Arabia (Oman,Yemen (Shaba), Ethiopia and of course Mecca and Medina).

Completely wrong. Spoken like a Gentile.
