    Until Oslo Israel tried to find "a partner for peace". It was assumed that Arafat fitted the bill and for decades Israel became a serial leaver, pulling out of Arab villages (read the contemporary press) and hoping never to return, preparatory to handing over total admin. to the PA. Unfortunately it became predictable that the town in question became a centre for terrorist attacks on Israel, people stealing into the Israeli cities and exploding themselves and dozens of Israeli citizens. Israel had no option at this stage but to resume her military charge of the towns in question. One day two Palestinian policemen crossed into the Israeli town of Hadera, presumably to visit friends or to shop and opened fire on the people walking by them in the main street, killing and wounding indiscriminately. Twp Israelis lost their way and ended up in the PA town of Ramallah and were literally torn to pieces by the people living there. This is not "occupation" but self defence.
