1. "Occupied lands" is not rubbish. These lands are recognised as being occupied by every nation in the world except Israel, and that view is shared by the overwhelming majority of international jurists. You have changed the demographics and moved in a foreign population. 2. Palestine within the borders of the WB and East Jerusalem is aleady a compromise on the part of the palestinians. The colonists have no intention whatsoever of living as equals with their Palestinian neighbours. They see themselves as the sole owners of the land given to them by divine right. 3. Israel is surrounded by Jordan and Egypt both of whom have lived with Israel nonagressively for over a decade. Saudia Arabia has offered peace rejected by Israel. 4. Israel continues to unleash terror against an occupied population. Just look at Gaza. As for Hamas go back and check the record and see the role Israel played in helping them to power. Divide and rule is an old colonial trick.
