    Hala, the questions are very important, because they expose the lie that Israel is "occupying Palestinian land." If that were in fact true, wasn't Jordan doing exactly the same thing between 1948 and 1967? Why was there no claim or occupation or demand for a Palestinian state at that time? Why were there fedayeen terrorist attacks against Israel even then, before the so-called "occupation." Why wasn't the world demanding that Jordan leave the West Bank so that the Palestinians can have their own state? Your inability to answer these questions demonstrates the intellectual bankruptcy of your position. Quoting one paragraph of Jabotinsky out of context doesn't help you. He was in favor of the Jews being allowed to live in Hebron and requiring the stateless Arabs to leave.
