What if the Zionist had conquered Israel back?

Reader comment on item: Israel Is the Least-Stolen Land

Dear Dr Pipes,

What if the Zionists of the early 1900s had raised an army, made frivolous treaties with the then locals of Jerusalem, broken those treaties when convenient, fought and won inhuman wars, and then sieged Jerusalem from all sides, and conquered it (back) from the Muslim Arabs?

Perhaps the world would have called it perfectly legitimate. Muslims did exactly this and no one calls their occupations from Rabat to Islamabad illegitimate.
