By   /  April 23, 2018  /  History, International, Israel, Israel's legal case, Lies & Deceptions, Mid. East news  /  No Comments

Apr. 22, 2018 The term “occupation” simply does not do justice to Israel’s role on the West Bank. The term “occupied” and the biased assumptions implied by its use are a distortion of history.
