That's lovely and all but I'm not fighting Saladin in a crusade. I'm in America and don't care. Let the region be glassed. There is more peace to be found there in rubble than in glory.

See, there's the problem right there. The use of the term "occupation" regarding Israel betrays a political bias, and is factually incorrect. Israel is the legitimate government. Deal with it. Calling it an "occupation" is like calling the government of France an "occupying force".
I debate this as well. What do you call it when someone comes on your land kicks you off and then lives there? Sounds like "occupation" to me.
Edit: The pic is too wide. Open it in another window to see what the Palestinians are living on today.

makes you wonder who wanted to murder Jesus, where is His body anyway? did he murder anyone? are you the King?
I feel as if taking a side in this argument diminished the light of my soul,
seeing as Jesus Christ pretty much destroyed the importance of Jerusalem by saying that God now resides in man, thus making the temple, and the entire contested argument, null for my beliefs.
