Meir, that's not my agenda, thanks for taking a stab at it anyway. All I want to get across is that the "occupation" label is a canard when its target has resided in the land all along, and especially when it's used to cement the Arab occupation of Israel. I have no objections to coexistence, except that it hasn't worked in the past 13 centuries. Being taxed into leaving by the Ottomans, or murdered by the humble servants of Sura 49, or having rocks thrown on you from above your holiest site, is not quite the same as losing a house constructed without a permit. Until Jews can live in Mecca, there's not much of a debate here.
