    the occupation occurred because the Pals and their Arab allies, like their Nazi allies, sought to invade and liquidate Israel. That is why the U.N. called the occupatin a "defensive occupation". When there is a defensive occupation there is no legal or moral requirement to withdraw, even if what was occupied was indeed a country, until the beligerent side, the Arabs, renounce violence. But ther Pals, who are Syrians, Lebanese, Egyptians, Jordanians and Iraqis, for the most part, (a) never renounced violence & (b) were not by definition a national people. Jordan, one of the belligerent countries who sought to liquidate Israel withdrew from the West Bank (after almost 20 years of excluding Jews from Jerusalem). Put on top of this that the West Bank has historically been the home of Jews, a home from which they never voluntarily left, and indeed were coerced to leave by the very same Pals who cry like babies today (when they aren't busy killing others), the situation becomes much more complicated and ridicules your ridiculous notion of Israel behaving Nazi like. It is the Pals who don't belong. Like so many nationalieis living in a mult-cultural world, they cannot legitimaely assert ownership to a foreign land, even if there are some or many families who have lived in what was a very poor, sparsely populated land before the Jewish migration attracted Arab economic migrants. Tough to face the truth, eh Steven.
