Some Israeli apologists defend Israel on the grounds that it biblically belongs to the Jews, others because the whole world is anti-semite and wants all Jews dead and therefore they need to protect themselves... Whatever mentality they have, they all share the same indoctrination (that is the same indoctrination that comes with Islamic fundamentalist or any kind of blind following). If the situation was reversed and Palestinians had the military upperhand and controlled Gilo, and said they would never give it up because it strategically protects the surroundings of Jerusalem from 'hostiles', the israelis would immediately see it as anti-semites wanting to kill Jews. But somehow they dont see any problems with the brutal occupation that is oppressing every day people and therefore contributing directly to hatred and hostility towards themselves (the israelis).
