Ben--you misunderstood my post. My comment was that legally the case is poor that the post-67 occupation is "illegal"--I think it self-evidently has no connection to Mr. Katsav's personal behavior. Particularly relevant is that Jews were "ethnically cleansed" FROM THE WEST BANK itself in 47-48 when Jews were killed or expelled from the Gush Etzion block of settlements and Jerusalem. I use brackets because "ethnic cleansing" has become a debator's rhetorical tool that obscures the reality that the Jews in Europe and Russia in WWII were NOT ethnically cleansed. They were genocically exterminated, whole communities, towns, cities, run to ground and gone up in smoke, millions upon millions in a Final Solution encouraged by the national Palestinian leader-in-exile.
