I wish this mantra will disappear once and for all. The West Bank, Jerusalem, the Golan Heights were occupied as a result of a war. Whether in Babylon,in Rome, in the Ottoman Empire, in US-Mexico wars, or closer in 19th century France/Germany conflicts, land has exchange hands during wars. Only when a peace agreement is signed, are territories sometimes returned ( or simply annexed) Jordan relinquished its claim over the West Bank (which it had occupied in 1948) before signing a peace treaty with Israel. Today, Palestinians claim it as their own. Fine, But until a proper agreement is reached between the parties, Israel is fully entitled to keep its control over that territory. Nothing here is ''illegal''
