Quick Quiz: When Did the "Occupation of Palestine" Start


Forty-seven years ago this time, Israel occupied the rest of Palestine,

No, not in 1967.

"Palestine" was "occupied" earlier.

In the original PLO Charter, the country always was occupied.

In the 1968 version, we read:

Article 6: The Jews who had normally resided in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion will be considered Palestinians.
And that was taken to mean 1917 with the Balfour declaration but who knows?
