The question is not whether Israel is an occupier, but whether the occupation is legal. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    According to UN Security Council Resolution 242, which the Palestinians and other Arabs love to [mis]quote, specifically and irrevocably links withdrawal of Israeli forces from "territories acquired in the recent conflict" [i.e., the 6-Day War] to completion of a negotiated peace with the country in question. Simply put, as long as there is no negotiated peace agreement and no declared cessation of hostilities, there is no reason for Israel to withdraw from anywhere. Under the understanding that the basis for the occupation is in fact a UNSC Resolution, yes, I am willing to argue the case in the UN or the ICC. Egypt signed a peace agreement and received all of the Sinai... Jordan signed a peace agreement and settled all claims... proof that Israel is willing to fulfill the conditions of UNSCR 242. On the other hand, Arabs (mis)quote the same resolution, cherry-picK certain passages and ignore other linked passages to prove a point that is misdirection personified. It's time to stop the lies, distortions and pure BS-- READ and UNDERSTAND UNSCR 242 and force the ARABS to act in accordance with Resolution 242 or lose all chance of recovering anything. Enough is enough... STOP THE LIES!
