Here is Marwan Barghouti last month
The real problem is that Israel has chosen occupation over peace
In March, Barack Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough, told a conference of liberal activists in Washington
“An occupation that has lasted for almost 50 years must end...Israel cannot maintain military control of another people indefinitely.”
Here is Richard Falk, the UN's Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories in 2012:
In the light of the General Assembly’s recognition of Palestine as a nonmember observer State in Assembly resolution 67/19 of 29 November 2012, it seems appropriate to refer to territory under Israeli occupation as “Palestine” rather than as “Occupied Palestinian Territories”. Such a shift in language also emphasizes the inadequacy of the international law framework available to address a condition of prolonged occupation that has now extended for more than 45 years.
There's even a video "It's the Occupation".
Here is one Michael Kramer, which pushes back the date of the start of the "occupation":
Occupation of Palestine started in 1948
And an Arab site writes of
within the Green Line—the territories under Israeli occupation since 1948
The official site of Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, asks
Which Came First - Terrorism or "Occupation"?
Despite all this, the real occupation that occupies the Arabs, and consequentially Jews and their supporters, is terror. That is their occupation.
Since 1920, terror is the political tool of violence of the Arab residents of Eretz-Yisrael. Not negotiations. Not diplomacy.
There is no compromise. No coexistence. They will not yield.
If anyone reading this seeks to assist those Arabs-who-refer-to-themselves-as-'Palestinians', liberate them from their terror mindset. Free them from their self-imposed occupation of death and murder.
