    occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in the course of a legitimate war of self-defense with the unlawful (and imprudent) confiscation of occupied land for civilian use.

    •  I wasn't conflating anything, respectfully. (0+ / 0-)

      I was addressing the specific quote which stated that Israel illegally confiscated West Bank. That the land is now used by civilians is a separate matter.

      •  YMMV, but I think you've misunderstood (0+ / 0-)

        the quoted language:

        "Mishor Edomim is located in the West Bank, on land which was illegally confiscated from Palestinians in 1967"
        As I understand this sentence, "illegally confiscated" refers to the land on which Mishor Edomim is located. That land, not the West Bank as a whole, is what is said to have been illegally confiscated.
