Israel did NOT withdraw from the territory it occupied in 1967 according to the armistice agreement that IT helped write! Bottom line, Denis - Israel began the settlement enterprise with the implicit purpose of creating facts on the ground as a basis for retaining occupied territory when the day ever came that Israel was forced to withdraw...a FACT that has long since been admitted by at least one of the men who masterminded the settlement enterprise. Bottom line, Denis, Israel's occupation and settlement enterprise have NEVER been about security - they're about expansion! And bottom line, Denis, Israel's occupation and settlement enterprise are violations of international law and UN resolutions. Bottom line, Denis!
