    h: "lord caradon wrote in resolution 242israel should 'withdraw from occupied territories' leaving out the all important 'the'.so not all of the region was intended to be palestine." Even if we accept that argument (and Caradon himself disputed it) you are still left with this problem: UNTIL those "intentions" are worked out THEN this territory is still merely "Israeli occupied", and therefore Israel's actions are constrained by the laws of occupation. h: "until that is decided israel will live where it pleases." An occupying power is not entitled to "do as it pleases" inside occupied territory, harzion. It is an "occupier", not a feudal warlord. Isn't it about time that Israel lived up to the int'l obligations that come with this occupation, rather than acting as a nation of unscrupulous carpet-baggers?
