Here is an old story with a new twist: Arabs and Jews claim the same land. IDF separates the two sides, tells them nobody will work the land - and then protects the Arabs as they plow.

Nothing makes sense anymore
Not a surprise considering the people running the Israeli government and military are self-hating, Leftist Jews who love Muzzies.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is of the Likud party in Israel, which is not a leftist party, but on the other side of the political spectrum. But, one thing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is very clear about - is that Israel abides by the RULE OF LAW (which is a foundational principle in most Western Nations) and he has stated so, very explicitly in those words (i.e., respecting the rule of law and the courts). So ... yes the IDF is going to enforce the rule of law as comes from the political system and the courts.
There are small and vocal segments of each political “side” who want Israel to take over all the land - both the Palestinian Authority [by implication in their statements] and the other side, “nationalists” who want to claim all the land - which is in the Oslo Accords and under “agreement” with the Israeli government for the last two decades.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said - and said many times and very explicitly that he will NEVER allow “Israel” to take over all the land - as he is ADAMANT about keeping the Palestinian population, currently living on that land, OUT OF ISRAEL PROPER.
Netanyahu (and also the Israeli government for the last two decades) INSISTS on separating the Palestinian population living on those lands - from any area of Israel proper. Netanyahu will NEVER allow it.
Likewise, he will never allow the Palestinian Authority the ability or right to take over all of Israel proper (either).
No. Not surprising. Infuriating, but not surprising.
The “RULE OF LAW” to which you refer here is a decision by a military-run administrative agency to agree with a Palestinian administrative agency without a hearing of both sides to the dispute, and while pretending that they would wait to hear both sides before making a determination. That’s not how rule of law works. In fact, it’s the very opposite. It is executive fiat. But Tapuach is a hot bed of Kahane’s followers, so the conclusion was a political one and foregone. So they decided not to even pretend to be judicial, just promise to pretend. Then they said ‘naaah’ and didn’t even pretend.
Israel Proper grew out of the Balfour declaration embodied in the League of Nation’s Mandate, creating a Jewish Homeland over which the British were only meant to administer. You cannot first make a land grant for a Jewish Homeland, and then take back the land and give 73% to Jordan, and then take what’s left and divide it yet again. That, too, is the opposite of the rule of law. It is the rule of administrative whimsy. While according to the rule of law, it can be correctly argued that all of the original Mandate ought to be enforced, and therefore the 73% of Jordan that the British administrators decided to break off and give to their pal Hussein is stolen, I won’t go that far. Let Hussein keep his fake kingdom. Let Hamas keep Ghaza. It’s spilled milk.
But 100% of the remaining 27% is “ISRAEL PROPER”. Especially since Juda and Samaria was won back in a genocidal war against Israel, after Jordan illegally occupied it from 1948 until 1967. We won’t even discuss the UN’s inconclusive attempt to illegally partition it in 1948.
That doesn’t mean that Arabs who have a legitimate claim of private ownership to a specific tract should have their rights trampled on. Only fascists and communists believe that collective class or national rights trump individual property rights. But the legitimacy of that claim should be investigated in a manner consistent with the rule of law, with both sides getting their day in court to present evidence and legal argument. This was not done in this case, no matter how much you capitalize the term “RULE OF LAW”.
Finally, Likud poses on the right of the political spectrum. They are, however, the only party that has consistently made territorial concessions at every turn, from the Sinai Dessert and Ghaza, to Hebron and Area A of Judah and Samaria. You could not convince me to vote for Likud if you drugged and hypnotized me. They are phonies, and Bibi worst of all.
