    D: "under un 242 the arabs had got to at least promise to recognise Israel if Israel withdrew from west bank and sinai etc. (sequencing presumably to be negotiated.)" No such "sequenceing" is written into Res 242 i.e. withdrawal is not conditional on recognition, nor vice versa. Israel insisted that the recognition come before any talk of withdraw, and the arabs insisted that the withdraw must happen before any talk of recognition; BOTH are consistant with Res 242. D: "Since they did not, that was a clear violation." No, there was no DIRECTIVE to them to recognize anyone, just a statement that the conflict is not over until ALL sides recognize everyone else's borders. That is not true of withdrawal; there was a DIRECTIVE to Israel to withdraw. D: "This followed an armistice agreement with Arab states." An armistace that STATED that the GL did NOT confer sovereignty, so arab claims that the extra land Israel seized in 48-89 was occupied had real legal backing.
