    Is it fair to compare French Algeria with the West Bank?

    Is it fair to compare French Algeria with the West Bank? Here are the similarities: Both of these territories are heavily Muslim-majority but with a significant non-Muslim minority (the Jews in the West Bank make up something like 20% of the total population there if one includes East Jerusalem...

    Israel captures the southern West Bank in 1949

    What if Israel would have successfully captured the southern West Bank (the territory with East Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Hebron) in 1949? Would this region have looked much more Jewish right now in this scenario? Would this have any effect on the subsequent Arab-Israeli wars? Also, would it...

    Will overpopulation in Israel result in much greater settlement in the West Bank?

    Did Israel miss a golden opportunity to capture the West Bank in 1949?

    Did Israel miss a golden opportunity to capture the West Bank in 1949? Basically, I am curious about this considering that this article suggests that it did: "In December 1948, during a lull in...

    Russian Central Bank

    There are rumors President Putin is planning to nationalize Russia's Central Bank. Those that read my posts on this forum, have probably spotted my distaste against people who came out of mafias in uniform like Mr. Putin and his siloviki gang. I haven't always been an anti-security services...

    Why Didn't Israel Expel Most or All of the Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza in 1967?

    Why didn't Israel expel most or all of the Arabs in the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip after it conquered these territories in the 1967 Six Day War? Did Israel already genuinely want to use these territories as bargaining chips for peace with the Arab countries, or is there some other reason...

    What if Israel Expels Most Palestinian Arabs from the West Bank and Gaza in 1967?

    To avoid any misunderstandings, I am certainly glad that Israel did not actually do this. That said, though, what if, purely hypothetically, Israel would have attempted to expel most Palestinian Arabs from the West Bank and from Gaza after it would have captured these territories in 1967? Would...

    Your nation or your bank account?

    Let's suppose you're a top level sportsman, and you're picked to represent your country. The fixture will, however, clash with a more lucrative one for you personally, maybe with your club, team, or it's a tournament if you're an individual sportsman. Which one would you personally choose? And...

    WI Israel had annexed Gaza and returned most of the West Bank after 1967?

    What if Israel has just annexed Gaza in 1967 like it did East Jerusalem and the Golan and it had returned the West Bank (or most of it, maybe Israel keeps a chunk here and there) to Jordan? All Arabs annexes would be offered Israeli citizenship.
