J: "What would YOU consider to be legitimate Israeli territory?" Legitimate, or legal? The LEGAL boundaries of Israeli territory are those drawn in the Partition Plan of 1947, and nothing since then has LEGALLY changed that. But since nobody - not even the Palestinians - are arguing about the territory seized by the Haganah between 1947-49 then it is fair to say that Israel has a LEGITIMATE claim to everything up to the Green Line. It is the difference between "de jure" borders (Partition Line) and "de facto" borders (Green Line), and those two won't be reconciled until a peace treaty is signed.
