Moshe ! the Palestiians LACK voting right because they are not citizens of Israel, just like the Japanese LACKED voting rights in US institutions during the US occupation ! Simple. BTW, you are right, THAT is not oppression. On the other hand, the occupation MUST lead to negotiations and these CANNOT be prejudiced by illegally altering the demographics. In other words, the US could not introduce Americans into Japan as settlers and then expect to negotiate a territorial peace with Japan ! Now, I think VOTING rights have not been the main issue for the Palestinians for decades, if they had been, they would have created the governance which would lead to voting rights in their own territory a long time ago and occupatin was NOT an impediment to that. The law of belligerent occupation requires that the occupying power allow municipal and other regional governance to continue with restrictions by othe occupying power only in specific issues.
