"Despite its frequent invocation in the Israeli context, scholars have never examined – or even considered – how the norm has been interpreted and applied in any other occupation context in the post-WWII era...
First, the migration of people into occupied territory is a near-ubiquitous feature of extended belligerent occupations. Second, no occupying power has ever taken any measures to discourage or prevent such settlement activity, nor has any occupying power ever expressed opinio juris suggesting that it is bound to do so. Third, and perhaps most strikingly, in none of these situations have the international community or international organizations described the migration of persons into the occupied territory as a violation of Art. 49(6)...Finally, neither international political bodies nor the new governments of previously occupied territories have ever embraced the removal of illegally transferred civilian settlers as an appropriate remedy."
And let us also remember that Israel came into its status as an "occupier" of the West Bank not through aggression, as is the case in virtually every other known situation like this, but as its role as the victim of aggression which collapsed, leaving Israel in possession of this territory.
This is just one more example of something which is almost universally denied, but is true nevertheless: holding the single, tiny Jewish state to a different standard than the entire rest of the world, for the sole purpose of condemning it as a rogue monster, is anti-Semitism. Period, end of story. People such as the BDS movement who portray Israel as a pariah state for behavior which elicits not a word of complaint when other countries do it, while ignoring the massively worse things going on in surrounding countries, are anti-Semites. Their denials of this fact deserve no more respect than the claims by wavers of Confederate flags that this has nothing to do with racism, and those denials put them in the same class with Confederate adherents, whether they come from the right or the left.
As an addendum, I might add that the constant attacks on Israel for having "displaced" the alleged Palestinian population utterly ignore the many examples from only a couple of years previous, such as the resettlement of Germans from the Sudetenland and Poland, in which hopelessly revanchist and irredentist populations were resettled, with the full approval of the world's governments. The people of German descent in the Sudetenland had a long history there, but after World War II, it could be seen that they represented a dagger pointed at the heart of Czechoslovakia. The same is true for a large part of the Arab population of the West Bank or Gaza, with the significant difference that the main supporter of the Germans in the Sudetenland had been destroyed, while the hostile fractions of the Palestinian population still receive massive aid from surrounding Muslim states.
