no, I agree: people don´t want to live under occupation. Tommy,the reason for this occupation was the threat in 1967, where Israel conquered Sinai,Golan, Gaza & West Bank. In the peace treaty with Egypt the Sinai was completelly returned. From Gaza Israel withdrew unilaterally. If you have no democratic partner what´s the reason to make deals that are only valid as long as the ruler stays in power! And: look into the mirror: how long did it take for Northern Ireland to be freed? What about Gibraltar ? Solve you problems first!
