    Israel is the OCCUPYING POWER in Area A, Area B, and in Area C, and the only difference between those three areas is the way in which (and to whom) Israel has chosen to DELEGATE its authority. But regardless of how (and to whome) that DELEGATION of authority has occured, the ultimate source of **all** authority in the WB remains the OCCUPYING POWER. And this bit that always seems to be missing from the zionist narrative: with that "authority" comes "responsibility", and the primary responsibility of an OCCUPYING POWER is towards the people under its occupation. I'll repeat that: not towards its own citizens, but towards the "protected persons" who are under its belligerent occupation. You have spent so long as the OCCUPYING POWER that you have simply forgotten that simple fact, and so you are (a) not only acting as a feudal warlord but (b) you don't even recognize what you have become. For shame, Israel.....
