    The conquest of the disputed territories that you call "arrogant" came about in a defensive war initiated by three Arab countries, Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Israel did not set out to conquer territories in 1967. It defended itself and its very existence. Please, note this point when using such language. Also, please note, that these territories had been conquered by Egypt, in the case of the Gaza Strip, and Jordan, in the case of Judea and Samaria. There was no independent state in any of these two territories, ever! So, please do not intentionally or otherwise, give the impression that the territories should be returned to an independent Palestinian Arab state. Such entity has never existed! Finally, do note, Judea and Samaria are the areas where Jewish civilization began. To tell Jews that they are conquerers of such a place simply lacks sensitivity. No civilians should ever been settled in these territories, but they are part of historic Eretz Israel.
