Whereas previous iterations of the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices had a section on “Israel and the Occupied Territories,” this year’s document refers instead to “Israel, Golan Heights, West Bank and Gaza."
While not as visible as moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, this is still very significant. To use the language of Trump-haters, it is “normalizing” Israel’s hold on the lands it won in war – the way conquest, especially in defensive wars, works. Poland is not about to give back to Germany the territory that was taken at the end of World War 2. It's Gdansk, not Danzig. And the children and grandchildren of former Deutchlanders of Danzig are bot considered refugees, the way the descendents of Arabs who once lived in the territoty that is now Israel claim to be (with a right of "return" to a land they never set foot in).
Nor is the US about to hand over the lands it won from Mexico,as La Raza wants.
