Entire Islamic world is mostly "occupied"

Within a few decades of Muhammad's death, Islamic armies had occupied thousands of miles of land from western shore of Africa to Sindh. So it is not a surprise that Jordan's occupation of West Bank is considered halal by muslims but Israel's occupation is considered haraam. If you find an instance where Muslims apply principles symmetrically, please let everyone know. Hypocrisy is the name of the game in the Islamic world.
