Palestine and the War of ‘How Long Occupation’

Recently commentators have been at pains to point out that Palestine has been under occupation for 50 years, that is, since 1967. In 2008 Palestine was under occupation for 60 years, that is since the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians in 1948. Paradoxically the more time passes, the less time the Palestinians have been under European occupation. No mention is made of British occupation of Palestine in December 1917, and that Palestinians have not had complete sovereignty over their land for what would be 100 years this December 2017.
