    D: "Occupation?" There is an army of occupation lording over this territory. That makes this an occupation. D: "I do not think so. " Then you aren't thinking straight. D: "This land, and I mean all the land belongs to Jewish people" The West Bank isn't under the belligerent occupation of "the Jewish people"; it is under the belligerent occupation of "the IDF". D: "and is called Israel" Israel is a STATE. The Jewish people is an ETHNICITY. They are not one and the same thing. D: "Refer to BIBLE." The state of Israel owes its existence to a) Resolution 181 b) A unilateral declaration of independence. It does not owe its existence to a religous tract. D: "As for arabic people they have plenty of choices to join multitudes of same landguage and culture countries." They can also choose to stay where they are and to demand their human rights. ALL ethnicities have that right, not just the one called "the Jews".
