Israel was attacked in 1967. Israel occupied land captured in that war. In a Just world they should just annex the land and be done with the whole issue of 'occupation'. A few years ago Israel withdrew completely from the 'occupied' Egyption Gaza Strip. Did Egypt move in to maintain order in its territory? No, it let the people there fester in a blockade maintained by both Egypt and israel and left their people at the mercy of the terrorists that have power there. Egypt has forfeit its claim here, either Israel needs to annex both territories or the territories need to simply declare a palestinian state and start working like a responsible state instead of a boy's/men's club of privileged a-hats. We are Allies with Israel and that means we DO owe Israel something, its called loyalty, support and comfort as they owe us in return. It is shameful that we are publicly humiliating our friends and being obsequious towards our self-declared enemies. Steven
