Yisrael Medad
I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970. I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh. I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and was Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center. I am now Deputy Editor of the critical edition in anthology of Jabotinsky's writing in English.

I think Israel maybe could improve its image regarding its presence in Judea and Samaria.

Just a small tip.

Turkey occupies Northern Cyprus.

It invaded the country back in 1974.

Here's how the occupation is described:

Northern Cyprus – or the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) – is only recognised by Turkey, while Greek Cypriots see the area as illegally occupied territory.  The battle for land rights on the divided island has been the subject of intense legal battles for many years. More than 60pc of property in the territory is understood to have been Greek Cypriot-owned before a Turkish invasion in 1974.

And how does it refer to its military presence there?

Bayrak television (19.06.07) broadcast the following:

Senior government and military officials met today at the Presidential Palace to discuss security issues.

The 4 hour long high level meeting chaired by President Mehmet Ali Talat was attended by Prime Minister Ferdi Sabit Soyer, the Turkish Ambassador to Lefkosia Turkekul Kurttekin, the Commander of the Turkish Peace Forces in Cyprus,...

Israel Peace Forces.

Sounds okay to me.

By the way, seems a big bank was involved in this illegal occupation regime in a "disputed" region, or 'territory', as we say here:

Court papers filed by a group of UK investors allege that HSBC took part in a “fraudulent property scheme of biblical proportions”. The documents claim the bank supported an “illegal commercial enterprise” in the disputed region...“The Plaintiffs invested life savings into what they believed were vacation or retirement dwellings with valid legal title issued by the TRNC,” papers seen by The Daily Telegraph claim.

“HSBC is involved in illegally transferring monies for the sale of these properties knowing that title to the underlying properties are illegal and/or defective because the “TRNC” lacks the sovereign power to issue or obtain title.”

One never knows how things may boomerang.
