    According to what you say, you simultaneously legitimize what you denounced some comments back - you legitimize the so called "terror" by jews during the british occupation, and you also say that it is perfectly fine for the indians to blow up new york, and for most of africa to throw out the white people. (And incidentally, the Jews were occupied before the muslims even existed). In short, you're talking nonsense. The fact is that there has been war of some sort all over the globe. Everyone can claim to have been occupied. The difference is that in most cases the occupied people were assimilated, or exiled, or massacred (did you ever wonder why there is no palestinian problem in Jordan?). While Israel unfortunately did nothing to assimilate the palestinians, Israel didn't massacre them either. You can't blame Israel for EVERYTHING.
