Delusional Thinking In Israel ???

Here is a noteworthy op-ed from the Jerusalem Post:

A day doesn't go by when you don't see a comment somewhere in the media about the "occupation" of the "West Bank" or of "Palestine". You may even hear it referred to (incorrectly) as the longest occupation in modern history.

Occupation is when a foreign army invades and controls land that doesn't belong to that army's country. During WWII Germany occupied France, Japan occupied parts of China, Egypt occupied Sudan in the 19th century and beyond, and China has occupied Tibet in what is truly the longest occupation in the modern world, and so on.

Legally – occupation is only when the land occupied had formerly been under the legal control of another sovereign state.

You can read the rest @

Jeez Louise!

So, there never was a "Palestine", there are no "Palestinian people", there is no "occupation", Israel is not "an apartheid state", and Israel is not committing "genocide".

I feel so much better now that this whole mess has been explained away. How about you?
