Neutrality of "occupied territory" section[edit]

This sentence, "An example of an occupied territory is Palestine after the Nakba of 1948 ..." does not meet Wikipedia's standard of neutrality. The UN does not consider Israeli territory pre-1967 to be an occupation. The use of "nakba" to refer to the 1948 Arab-Israeli war may indicate that the author advocates a partisan narrative. I will edit this sentence to replace this example with a less controversial one. Jprg1966 (talk) 06:30, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Territory (country subdivision)Territory (political subdivision) – A territory is not necessarily a country subdivision, for example an occupied territory is sometimes a full fledged country that just happens to be occupied at the time (e.g. Japan).

  • Support as country is ambiguous and the proposers suggestion is more encompassing. Zarcadia (talk) 07:40, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Suggestion. Since it could be either country or political (or maybe something else), make it "Territory (subdivision)"? 213.246.91.158 (talk) 08:28, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
That would work as well. Zarcadia (talk) 16:45, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
