comment Has there been other settlements in occupied territories in recent history?
Agreed with @YannisRizos, Olivier and pugsville. Israel post-1948 territories > the UN mandate. And the occupied territories are in addition to this, those that Israel conquered in the 1967 war. As far as I know it's only Israel itself which disagrees with the territories' status as under occupation, preferring to call it "disputed territories"

comment Why did the Arabs start the 1973 War during Ramadan, and did it affect their performance?
@T.E.D. it is mandatory. It can't be cancelled on whim, and the only valid excuse are sickness or travel (note the Battle of Badr in Muhammad's era were fought during Ramadan) Additionally The Arab armies didn't really invade or travel to Israel, at most they only advanced to their home territories taken by Israel in the 1967 war (the Sinai and Golan peninsula). But this is just trying to guess, I'm sure there are records as to whether they really fasted, why they chose Ramadan and that can explain whether it impacted their performance
