    Sorry David, Israel's occupation is totally justified. What you occupation critics never get into is the reasons the occupation came about and endured. I don't have to go through the details but you know full well that Israel fought a defensive war in 1967 and was fortunate enough fight it, as international law permits, on the territory of those attacked her. And those that attacked her refused to recognize Israel, refused to agree to peace and refused to negoatiate the terms of peace. Moreover, there was the horrible history of Pal treatement of Jews before the State came into being, not the least of which was joining Hitler's little project, but also denying Jews access to their holiest site until 1967 and despoiling the site as a garbage and sewage site. Iran has terrorized its own peopels, fought a war with Iraq, probably a justified war. Israel's war is far more justified and, incidentally, Iran is at war with Israel but through surrogates.
