Major Adrian Agassi is a senior Israeli judge who first served in the legal department that oversaw the confiscation of land in the West Bank to build Jewish settlements and was then appointed to the military court that decides -- and almost always denies -- Palestinian appeals against the seizure of their property, and that also rules on legal disputes between Jewish settlers and Palestinians. Judge Agassi maintains that people like himself, a Jew born in Britain, have more right to live in Palestine than people who were born there. He denies, however, that his beliefs affect his ability to make fair and impartial rulings.
