I think you took the quote out of context. The need for an Israeli security presence is essential. Without it chaos would ensue. This is why the the PLO stopping internal violence (Hamas etc.) was a precondition for the cessation of Israeli security activity in the territories. If the Israelis withdrew, there would be a power vacuum - which could closely resemble the violence that followed the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza. I'm not arguing for total oppression but a certain level of security presence - be it Palestinian or Israeli - is needed. So long as it's effective at stopping terrorists and allowing normal people to carry on with life.

Yeah, Israel is above any law, it seems. They can do anything with impunity.
