What exactly are you referring to when you say "an occupying army" since Gaza has been under Arab control since Israel pulled out in 2005 or maybe it was 2007. So where is the occupation and oppression? Another point; if the Arab terrorists in Gaza were not using hospitals, schools, mosques and administration buildings to hide their rocket launchers there would be far fewer civilian casualties. The Israeli's make a point of trying very hard NOT to target civilians while the Arab terrorists in Gaza just point and shoot, hoping they kill some Israeli women and children. Cowards.
