    the PLO as you may know was established in 1964, 3 years PRIOR to any so called "occupied territories". The acronym PLO stands for, as you may know, palestine LIBERATION organization. So tell me Matthew, what was the PLO established to LIBERATE in 1964? As I am sure you know, only in 1967 did the territories known as west bank and gaza fall under israeli control following arab armies massed on israels borders in yet another attempt to annihilate israel. Israel never wanted or took these territories before this...only when they were invaded did they occupy this land..and have always offered to trade it back in return for full recognition of israels legitimate right to exist. So Matthew? why was the PLO established in 1964? you liberals are all the same...couched in academia, conveniently naive and ill informed of facts which don't line up with your world view...are you really an academic or not?! Israel is not even close to an apartheid state..even jimmy carter now admits this.
