    I will only address the illegal occupation aspect of your comments because others have address your other points. What occupation are you referring to exactly? If you mean Gaza, Israel unilaterally exited the area over a year ago in case you did not notice! Regarding areas of the West Bank won during a defensive and historic war for the existance of the State of Israel, Ehud Barak offered the area to Arafat who decided to quite intellegently reject it. After all, if he had a state the international community including yourself would feel less upset about his people's terrible plight. There is no illegal occupation of the land to begin with. The PA has control over Palestinian inhabited areas and Israel has control over Israeli inhabited areas. I dont understand what Israel occupies that it hasn't earned, offered back and inhabits?
