There some areas of Eastern Israel that are unlawful but there is no occupation just people out there willing to harm innocent people for one reason or another. For this reason there is a security situation in Israel that requires a lot of security and security precautions that effect ALL of our qualities of life. It is humiliating to have to show inside my trunk everytime I go shopping or to empty my pockets to go to a cafe or to have to think to carry a gun at times but this is due to terrorism and this is why there appears to be a occupation. We are occupied by the terrorist!
