    There was also a border between Israel & Palestine..It was called set up by the UN Partition Plan...However, one neighbor, the Arabs refused to recognize it...They attacked Israel in 1948, and rejected the border...Then another border was established, the "Green Line" of 1949...In 1956, Nasser decide to block Israel's use of the Suez canal, another violation...War ensued, Egypt lost...Then we have the '67 war, when Nasser again blocked Israel's right of passage through the Straits of Tiran, he position cannon to halt the Israeli vessels...An act of war, which ensued on June 6, 1967...Then again, in 1973 Syria & Egypt attacked Israel for the fourth time, the Yom Kippur war came about...Now, the Arabs are demanding that Israel revert to the 1948 borders which weren't effective in the first place... You must have noted how well Hamas & Fatah are sharing power...Arabs can't get along with Israel or each other..
