June 1967: The Israeli military under massive unprovoked attack from Arab armies intent on destroying the State of Israel, defended itself against, Syrian, Jordanian and Egyptian armies on the West Bank of the River Jordan and East Jerusalem (belonging then to Jordan)and Gaza (belonging then to the Egyptians). This region was an area sparsely populated by nomadic tribes, some Arabs and some Jews since the destruction of the area the Romans called Philistina.
The Israelis won the areas now known as the "occupied territories," in the 6 day war of 1967. Any territory won by a country in war in which they were not the aggressor is legitimate to occupy.
In terms of occupation, Israel on the whole does not wish to unduly disadvantage the inhabitants of the territories but in the face of those who would wish to see the destruction of the State of Israel and the Jewish people residing within it, has had to defend itself against elements who would seek to do just that.
If the inhabitants had not fled their homes in the war of Israeli independence 1947 - 1949 following the UN resolution giving both Jews and Arabs in the British Mandate of Palestine a State and Self-Determination for both parties, maybe Jews and Arabs could have lived at peace here for the last 57 years.
The false idea that Israel supposedly have never posessed the land of ISRAEL.
Note: PALESTINE IS THE LATIN WORD FOR PHILLISTINE. IT IS NOT EVEN A PLACE.
Some dumbass believes that Israel never posessed the land of Israel that Yahweh gave to them.
Israeli Occupation of PALESTINE is an often repeated political falsehood intended to mis-inform those ignorant of the history of the Arab-Israeli Conflict.
It is a legal mistake and misnomer to use the phrase ,"Israeli Occupation of PALESTINE", as it does not accurately reflect the legal or political situation. Use of the phrase,"Israeli Occupation of PALESTINE" makes a person sound ignorant and bigoted.
a terrible and ruthless military expansion by the small country of Israel upon the people of Palestine. it is an issue that unites all Muslims against Israel and fuels the ruthless and destructive Arab terrorist groups. everyday more Palestinian men, women, and children die at the hands of a merciless enemy.
did you hear about Israeli occupation of palestine?
