Every day, Israeli "settlers" (paramilitaries) occupy more of the West Bank. Soon, the Palestinians will be squeezed into an enclave like a West Bank version of Gaza. And some Democratic politicians will be like, "What can we do.... I still want the AIPAC money (or i don't want that money going to my Republican opponent)".

It is against international law to occupy contested land. That is what Israel has done for decades. spike jones Nov 30 #32

Geneva Convention spike jones Nov 30 #49
Which Geneva Convention? Please cite the Article(s) of the particular Geneva Convention you are referring to Beastly Boy Nov 30 #55
I was just remembering what was written a when Rachel Corrie was killed. I have been wrong before. spike jones Nov 30 #58
You Are Quite Right, Sir The Magistrate Dec 1 #60
The Wikipedia article you cited mentions illegal settlements on the occupied territoties. Beastly Boy Dec 1 #61
Building settlements are not temporary, moving citizens out.... spike jones Dec 1 #63
Correct. Building settlements is a violation of 4th Geneva Convention. Occupation is not. Beastly Boy Dec 1 #65
The Settlements, Sir, Are The Violation The Magistrate Dec 1 #64
The post I originally replied to states: Beastly Boy Dec 1 #66
True, Sir The Magistrate Dec 1 #68
I qualified the occupied statement with mentioning Jewish settlements in my original post. But whatever. spike jones Dec 1 #69
A mention of Jewish settlements doesn't make occupying contested land against international law. Beastly Boy Dec 1 #70
