    One does not impose anything by quoting a UN resolution. Israel is in violation of UN resolutions 242, 452 and 465 and articles 33,49,53 and 147 of the 4th Geneva Convention: none of which are considered by the international community and international law courts, UN ICJ and the ICC in the Hague, to be pseudo-legalistic. They are as legally binding as UN 181 under which Israel declared statehood. It is irrelevant that Arabs rejected partition: Israel did not, and if partition were not enacted, there would not be a sovereign State of Israel, and the nation of Israel in the UN. When the Israelites entered Canaan, also known as Palestine, it was inhabited by (among others) the semite tribe, Jebusites. They built Jerusalem, and are thought by scholars and historians to be the forebears of the Palestinians. The first act of air piracy in history of civil aviation was conducted by Israel in 1954. The first deliberate shooting down of a civilian airliner was conducted by Israel in 1973
