    misleads everyone & helps you make a persuasive but false case. The U.N. confirmed, in 1967 that the origins of the occupation were defensive, that is Israel's occupation was a defensive occupation. In those circumstances, international law permits the occupier to maintain the occupation until the attacking entity renounces violence and agrees to negotiate. That is enough to countermand you point but there is way more.There is no occupation of Pal land. There is occupation of land that was formerly unlawufully occupied by Jordan who was one of the countries that attacked Israel and caused the original occupation. Jordan officially abandoned the West Bank. So the freedom that Pals are fighting for continues to be freedom to do what international law, if properly applied, doesn't permit them to do. No doubt the corrupt and Islamic entity that we call the U.N. will be of assistance to the Pals but that is a mistake that the U.N. may eventually rue.

Pollard’s release feels like a consolation prize
