"SDHD insists that the definition of an occupation is "boots on the ground" i.e. no "boots" = no "occupation". OR is in charge of the government, crapwit. Norway: Boots on the ground AND government appointed by the Reich. Israel, NO boots on the ground in Gaza and NO governmental control by Israel. You are so damned obtuse. "I insist that the definition of occupation refers only to AUTHORITY" What "authority" does Israel have INSIDE Gaza, dumbshit? You claim the ability to "reoccupy" is "authority." "and so the manner in which an occupying power deploys its troops is immaterial." Troops OUTSIDE of a region is not occupying a region, dumbshit. In this case, it's a BLOCKADE. The Wilhelm List citation doesn't change the fact that HAMAS is the authority in Gaza. Name-dropping isn't an argument.
