"The truth is that we just can`t abide the truth..." - Esther It is most amusing that in international negotiations as well as the negotiations with Palestinians Israel INSISTS it is the Legal Occupying Authority. The documents posted by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs prove that. Indeed, why is there military authority in the territories? Why is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs responsible for dealings with the Palestinians? Yet it is clear that many Israelis and others have built a very fragile fantasy that somehow there is no occupation. Total reality denial that for pathological reasons must be strongly refuted whenever their fragile beliefs are challenged.
