It's illegal for a Palestinian to sell land to a Jew in the Palestinian territories. They will be killed for it in Gaza.

1- With the exception of political sympathisers or aid workers, what possible motive would a Israeli/Jew have for wanting to live in the OPT other than to affront Palestinian sovereignty and provoke more violence?

2-That comparison is completely blind to the material realities on the ground. The West Bank and Gaza is on the verge of annihilation because of settlers moving in. For Palestinians to sell land to Jews would serve nothing other than to expedite that process.

The point is not that arabs are being denied rights within Israel, but arabs who refuse to renounce their Palestinian identity.

Last time i checked, settlers receive legal immunity despite breaking Israeli law, large packets of land stolen from Palestinians behind the agreed peace line and copious amounts of cash from the Israeli government. The rights of Israelis living in Palestine fare pretty well from what i can see.
