What the poster intentionally ignores

in response to reader comment: Palestine is a STATE

UN Palestine Committee, charged with implementing UNR181. It has a link to the UN report the quote is in, and the quote reads "... The invitation extended by the [181] resolution was promptly accepted by the Government of the United Kingdom and by the Jewish Agency for Palestine, both of which designated representatives to assist the commission. ... As regards the Arab Higher Committee, the following telegraphic response was received by the Secretary-General on 19 January:' ARAB HIGHER COMMITTEE IS DETERMINED PRESIST [PERSIST] IN REJECTION PARTITION AND IN REFUSAL RECOGNIZE UN[O] RESOLUTION THIS RESPECT AND ANYTHING DERIVING THEREFROM [THERE FROM]. FOR THESE REASONS IT IS UNABLE [TO] ACCEPT [THE] INVITATION.'"

There is no Palestinian state because the local Arabs rejected in in 1948.

Also, war is not golf, there are no Mulligans. The only acquisition of territory through war was Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq invading across their sovereign borders to acquire territory. In 1967, they were pushed back.

Nothing in what you posted shows a state. In fact, it only agrees with what the Israel High Court said, that the territory is disputed and that the people, who remain enemy aliens dedicated to Israel's destruction, are occupied.

UNSCR242? Israel accepted it, the Arabs rejected it with the Three No's of Khartoum and the Arab League is still in the state of war declared in 1948.

As for the GC, the IHC has always supported it while Hamas, the largest group in the PA, says the GC are invalid because they violate Sharia. I find the vast number of UNGC rants against Israel to by hypocritical for many reasons for more than that one reason.

You rejected UNR181, and have waged a 66 year long war. You have no right to whine about others ignoring the UN when you're not interested in it yourself. When you can unconditionally end the war you unconditionally began and unconditionally wage, then you'll move towards peace. Of course, then you'd have to move from Islam, so I don't expect it.
