A Reuters article begins with the sentence, "A Palestinian assailant was shot dead on Wednesday after stabbing a security guard at the entrance to a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military said."
Did the Israeli army really use the term occupied West Bank?

The pasuk in Mishpatim tells us, "Acharei Rabim L'Hatos; To follow the majority." The famous question asked is, "That since most of the world does not follow Hashem and abide by the laws of the Torah, why aren't we obligated to follow the majority?"
The Chasam Sofer's explanation of this pasuk answers this question. "Lo Sihiyeh Acharei Rabim L'Ra'os;" There are things that are absolutely, positively bad. Do not follow the majority in their wickedness and folly." When do you follow the majority? "L'Hatos," when there is doubt in which way to turn. Then go with the Rabim. If you understand this, then, "Lo Saaneh Al Riv," says the pasuk. "You will not be caught up in debate about avodah zara and other bad ways of the world because the guidelines are clear to you."
Reb Elchonon Wasserman answered that it says a few pasukim later (23:8) that bribery blinds the wise. The majority of the world is bribed by their desires, and even if they are wise, they have become blind and cannot be followed.
