    The author begs the question in his first sentence. He says: We can hope Israel finally is heading toward ending the occupation that has destroyed our society's ethical backbone and has turned us into a pariah among the cultured nations. His conclusion simply is not supported by the facts. He should read Professor Efraim Karsh's article "What Occupation" http://www.palestinefacts.org/what_occupation.html and he will learn of the great benefits of the occupation to the Arabs prior to the mistake Israel made of entering into the Oslo agreement that gave control over most of Judea and Samaria to the so called "Palestinians". (Why do the Palestinians call Judea and Samaria "The West Bank"? Because wouldn't it look silly for them to claim that the Jews are illegally occupying Judea.)
