    The world has long rejected Israel's claim that because Jordan was wrongfully in control of the West Bank, Israel's subsequent occupation is not an occupation, and that the West Bank and Gaza are somehow "disputed territiories". No one outside Israel and the Israel-first lobby in the U.S. has ever gone along with this, including at times spokesmen for the U.S. government such as U.N. ambassadors Arthur Goldberg and William Scranton. Even the dissenting opinion of the American Judge in the International Court of Justice case involving the wall did not dispute that Israel's occupation is subject to the Fourth Geneva Convention. Although Israel had legitimate security concerns in initially occupying the Palestinian territories in 1967, it clearly demonstrated that its intent was to annex territory and introduce its citizens into the occupied territories as a privileged class, both illegal actions under the Fourth Geneva Convention. Even if Israel's techical interpretation were correct, it has clearly acted contrary to the intent of the Fourth Geneva Convention to respect the rights of the native inhabitants and to impose on them only such burdens as are necessary to protect the occupying forces.
