Admittedly, I know little of the situation. It just seems like the occupation is over reach, and isreal building new settlements doesnt seem like the best way to move toward peace. My understanding is that each side needs to consider compromise OR take the handcuffs off to let them each fight it out and end it.You may as well ask yourself if it is anti-American if you want to secure our borders.
Officially Israel does not occupy Gaza. Gaza has it's own government.
I appreciate your analogy though, i definitely have to learn more.
