    As far as the Basque and Northern Irish are concerned, there are obvious independence movements that are brutally suppressed by the British, Spanish, and French. As for the other territories, they all have independence movements that are denied to legally seek secession- that is Occupation. Interestingly enough, the Israeli government does NOT oppose an "palestinian" sovereign state- whereas the European countries I mentioned refuse to even entertain the idea of national self-determination for the peoples that they conquered and continue to suppress! As for Israel's "occupied territories"- you're just WRONG- those areas are seen legally by the UN and other international bodies as DISPUTED territories, NOT "occupied." The Europeans are picking again on Israel even though there are far worse abusers who also have dubious claims to regions within their borders: Armenia, Turkey, China, India, Pakistan the list goes on &on, yet only Israel is singled out- that is antisemitism!
