    In 1947 the UN divided British mandate Palestine 51% jews & 49% to the arabs & nobody got Jerusalem. The arabs rejected this resolution and chose war and the result was when the war ended in 1949 Israel was left 78% of mandate Palestine the remaining 22% minus Gaza went to Jordan & Gaza to Egypt. Israel captured Jerusaelem but as part of the ceasefire agreement the city for its first & last time in its history Jerusalem was, Israel made Jerusalem its capital and Jordan did not. In the late 80s Jordan renounced its claims to the remaining 22% of mandate Palestine ( West Bank ) and Egypt renounced its claim to Gaza in the 1979 peace treaty. As the palestinians rejected 181 in 1947 they never got a state and until it all becomes official Judea & Samaria will remain DISPUTED land not occupied. Private land is private land public land is not private and like in all countries individuals own their own homes not regions ( public land ). Resolotion 181 is irrelivent these days because even if we do create a palestinian entity they will only get 22% ( 5860km ) of what they could have had if they had accepted 181 when they had the chance. Its also a fact that if we create a palestinan state once the celebrations are over it will never be viable -- no natural recurces, shortage of basics like water, growing population, not enough land, not enough money ( once this state is created the foreign donations will dry up ). We can create a palestinian state but its never going to survive .. they are not even going to be allowed a military or even have a comercial military industry as a condition of being granted statehood. If they want something viable then they should look at alternative solutions like Jordan being the palestinian state.

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran

There was no security breach in what the former defense minister said about how an attack was thwarted; what has suffered is mainly Israel’s image.

Not a migrant, not an immigrant – there has to be a third option, but he doesn't know how to say it in English, Arabic or Hebrew.
