and I believe that they are a hinderance to a peaceful two state solution....only because that is the way the world works. But....where are you getting that the territories are occupied? Occupied from whom? Was Jordan occupying the west bank before 1967 and if so from whom? All the yelling by everyone that this is an "occupation", "illegal", "international law" etc. etc. are only political statements and have no basis in law. If they only say that this situation is intolerable because the rights of others are being trampled, then I think it will go a long way toward resolving the issue. The legalistic nonsense lacks the essential component of human sympathy and is thus righfully ignored by other legalistic/biblical nonsense.
