    Recall that trolls can never discuss a topic in its thread and will always seek either to divert with nonsense or puke their propaganda talking points (or, as we see, both).

    ATLF> the use of force for the purpose of self-determination is NOT illegal, while the use of force to quell a struggle for self-determination unequivocally is.

    How mentally sick and deranged with hate must one be to believe that attacks targeting innocent civilians are ever "not illegal"?

    So it is with those who don't understand the first thing about international law, because they reverse the scientific method and invent it - selectively and hypocritically - to suit their own purposes.

    ATLF> Stabbing attacks on occupying Israeli soldiers in East Jerusalem and other parts of the West Bank are plainly legal, and there is no justification for violence meted out to prevent such instances.

    Does everyone see the depth of the perversion? A soldier being attacked, in AyaTrolLiar's sick mind, isn't even allowed to defend him or herself but must submit to the attacker, roll over and die.

    Can you imagine someone spewing such nonsense about the Allied occupation of nazi Germany after WW II?

    In reality, occupations are legal and it is not open season on soldiers or administrators.

    || The Occupying Power may, however, subject the population of the occupied territory to provisions which are essential to enable the Occupying Power to fulfil its obligations under the present Convention, to maintain the orderly government of the territory, and to ensure the security of the Occupying Power, of the members and property of the occupying forces or administration, and likewise of the establishments and lines of communication used by them.

    || Protected persons who commit an offence which is solely intended to harm the Occupying Power, but which does not constitute an attempt on the life or limb of members of the occupying forces or administration, nor a grave collective danger, nor seriously damage the property of the occupying forces or administration or the installations used by them, shall be liable to internment or simple imprisonment, provided the duration of such internment or imprisonment is proportionate to the offence committed.

    So even non-lethal attacks are illegal and perpetrators are subject to imprisonment.

    ATLF> Rather the obligation of the occupying army is to withdraw

    The UN Resolution of record, UNSCR 242, does not require a unilateral, immediate, or even full Israeli withdrawal. It (back in 1967) established what is known as the "land for peace" formula. Israel will withdraw AFTER a peace agreement is established.

    UN Security Council Resolution 242 is binding on the parties (unlike General Assembly Resolutions which express the tyranny of the majority in a forum of primarily "unelected despots" motivated not by law but politics).

    Let's talk peace: The two-state solution

    It's not just that AyaTrolLiar's comments are in themselves comical, the hilarity increases infinitely in that he takes himself so seriously when no one else does - believes he's a genius based on twisting his selected sentence fragments from cherry-picked sources (trapped in his own circular arguments, having reversed the scientific method from the onset).
