    Take a class in history when you get to high school. Your teacher will tell you that Jordan had control of Judea and Samaria between 1948 and 1967, and nobody was complaining about the "occupation" of Palestine or clamoring for a Palestinian state. You will learn that the Arabs still would not recognize the existence of Israel. Your teacher will tell you that Israel won something called the Six Day War in 1967, and Jordan lost Judea and Samaria to Israel during that war. You will find out that Israel offered to return Judea and Samaria immediately after the war but was met with the three "no's" by the Arabs, meaning no peace, no recognition and no negotiations. Finally, you'll learn that several years later King Hussein of Jordan gave up any claim to the return of the West Bank. You will then be smart enough to figure out that only vicious anti-Semites or complete morons could really believe that Israel is "occupying" Palestinian territory.
