"its a hell of a large piece of land"....which is true, but it is a large piece of land that the IDF has to patrol so as to stop terrorist activities to kill Israeli's and troops protecting their soverign against terror groups like Hammas & their affiliates, PLO, etc, etc. So dont say "ourland", "occupation", "resistance". This has been going since the birth of the State of Israel.
