    Regions may be "occupied" regardless of the existence of any formal state. Intl law and those who with any sense of humanity understand that people living in an area without a unified state have the same human rights as citizens of empires. The Jews have had a uniquely cohesive culture for millenia. Yet, no reasonable person could believe that such racial cohesion is necessary for people to have human rights or own land. It's people that count, not empires. The region was colonized and controlled by Europeans for centuries. "Palestine" is a Imperialist British creation, but that doesn't mean that the people who lived in the region for hundreds of years, whatever they are called, are non-persons with no claim on their land. If states are so determinative, where are the British, Roman and Greek shares? And what about the Canaanites? Oh yea, the Jews took their land by genocide. What a basis for a claim!
