The "confrontation" is not complex at all. In 1967 the Israeli prime minister defied the advice of his own legal adviser in deciding to begin an illegal permanent non-military Israeli civilian presence in the occupied territories. Is that so hard to understand/ Is that so complex? Every so-called "complexity" flows from that one decision consciously made in violation of international law. Israel has no more business in Palestine than Russia and Germany did in Poland in 1939. It should simply end the occupatiuon as all call for - 1967 borders with the minor adjustments foreseen in UN resolution 242.
