    SDHD: "Johnboy can`t imagine rights for a state being derived from agreements drafted before the existence of that state because the state isn`t mentioned in the agreements." There are, indeed, rights enshrined in those agreements, SDHD, and they amount to this: Jewish INDIVIDUALS have a right to come to "Palestine" and hence become "citizens of Palestine" i.e. they have a right to become a part of the body politic of Palestine. Now, SDHD, explain to me how you go from that to a "Jewish state"??? Because that requires a FUNDAMENTAL step-up i.e. from the right of Jews to become a part of the body politic to a right for Jews to USURP that body politic. I am saying that it is impossible to get from (A) to (B) using only the list of agreements that victor supplied. And you have done nothing to demonstrate otherwise, since ALL you have contributed is... polemic. Nothing more, just.... polemic.
