    CJK: "israel never declared 'borders.' " So what **is** "the state of Israel"? It is a cancer that can grow uncontrollably until it kills its host, or is it an ameoba that can change its shape at will? Ben Gurion declared that state the only way that he LEGALLY could: 1) He pointed to the Mandate for Palestine for his legal justification for WHY THE JEWS WERE ENTITLED TO BE THERE and 2) He pointed to Resolution 181 for his legal justification for WHY THOSE JEWS ARE ENTITLED TO DECLARE A STATE. Once he did that he "declared" the borders of that state i.e. LEGALLY they must be the lines that were defined in Res 181, because *any* *other* *border* encompasses territory to which the state of Israel has *no* *legal* *claim*. You are so casual with this argument, because at its core it is the same one that Ahmedanijad uses i.e. "Israel" is nothing more than "the zionist entity that occupies Qods".
