"Recognition" means you agree that a state has sovereignty over its land. In which case "recognition" means you can not wipe out that state. Defeat it in battle? Yes. Occupy it? Yes. Slice it up and incorporate the bits into your own state? No. In which case I think it's fair to ask what no-one here EVER seems to ask: what does "recognize Israel's right to exist" actually MEAN? It can't mean insisting that Israel has sovereignty within its borders, and no-one can take that away from it - because that's what "recognition" means. I suspect when the zionists say "Israel's right to exist" they mean Israel's right to insist it remain a Jewish state no matter what demographic changes occur within it. Which is code for saying "we have the right to eject our Arab citizens if they get uppity, and we have the right to refuse to even consider right-of-return, and everyone agrees they are OK with that".
