Associates close to Netanyahu and Ya'alon called draft review of Operation Protective Edge 'an unserious report that reeks of politicking.'12:47 06.05.16 | 0 comments
I Israel were to give the Palestineans in the West Banks citizenship and full rights, it would not be an occupation any more. As for many in Israel this demographic shift in the electorate is as bad as nuking Israel - it is always called Israel's destruction, isn't it ? - this won't happen. Alternatively, the military could withdraw. If Israel claims only the territory, where Arabs have (almost) equal rights, there also would not be an occupation. If the military stays and people are kept under martial law, it is an occupation.
