    Israel has no business on Palestinian territory, besides an act of war. In that sense, the 1967 war has never ended, with Israel as the dominant force, which is precisely the situation Israel prefers, allowing it to practice "creeping annexation" and war by attrition against Palestinians. The OCCUPATION is the basis of this situation, which can be remedied by recourse to international courts, and an international police force if the courts, and possibly the Palestinians, so desire. It's far easier and far more humane for the PLO to police its own terrorists, than for Israel to operate "security" thorughout Palestine, with its outrageous abuses. Palestine is equally entitled to exactly the same "security" as is Israel, and the same international legal protections as Israel. What applies to Palestine, applies equally to Israel, including Israeli terror against Palestinans, both private and organized. Only an international judicial system, and an international police force, if need be, can reasonably address this problem, in order to end the occupation.
