..."and to launch a settlement enterprise amidst the foreign stateless population they had found there".... Much too kind to the zionist agenda. Sure, in 1967 Israel seized the West Bank, and began colonizing it. But in 1967 Israel also seized the Golan Heights, and began colonizing it. And in 1967 Israel also seized the Sinai, and began colonizing it. Think about that i.e. the excuse of "But! But! This territory doesn't belong to anyone!" did not apply to either the Sinai or the Golan, but Israel colonized that territory regardless. Israel is simply an aggressive colonial expansionist power, full stop, and the excuse it gave/gives about the West Bank being "a special case" is simply self-serving twaddle.
