Dear Potobac Thanks for your comment. But perhaps I did not make myself clear. The point I was being challenged on was whether Israel is held to different standards to to other countries. I think that it clearly is - Take a look at the number of UN debates and condemnations of Israel compared to other countries with far worse human rights records and you will see that Israel is treated very differently to toher countries. My second point is that while i would very much like the occupation to end as soon as possible and a Paelstinain SState to be established alongside Israel, it is true that Israel has legitimate security concerns about this. The fact that Israel's pull out from Lebanon and Gaza were both met with missiles flying over the border makes it much harder and more dangerous to pull out of the West Bank which is right next to the heart of the country. Take a look at a map and you will see that Israel is a tiny country - on most maps there is not even enough space to write its name within its borders, so territorial withdrawals while necessary are not straightforward in terms of proteccting the country and its citizens against those who are dedicated to its anhilation.
