No reason to stop the occupation without a committment to peace, a recogntion of Israel and a good faith negotiation. In terms of the Synagogue, as others have ably pointed out, it was destroyed illegally as part of a campaign to eliminate Jews and Jewish life from Jerusalem and the West Bank. Having done that, the bastardos now cry alligator tears of "occupation"? The height of hypocrisy and tranparently so. Moreover, there has never been a Palestine governed by any national Palestinian authority. What has been created is an artifice which is simply a political device intended to yet attack Jews and their aspirations to go back to the city which was built by Jews and from which they were kicked out, including by those who now cry "occupation".
