    "Which territory is uncontested, disputed, or occupied depends on where the border is and that has never been decided." You have it the wrong way around, Jeff. The BORDER is determined by where SOVEREIGNTY begins and ends. And Israel's "dispute" over where sovereignty ends is very weak. Israel claims total sovereignty over all the land inside the 1949 Armistace line, and that has not been disputed since 1993. Israel does NOT have sovereignty over the West Bank, or the Gaza Strip, and even Israel has never disputed that. The Government of Israel does not dispute - and has not disputed since 2004 - that the West Bank is under belligerent occupation. That puts paid to any "dispute" that Israel has a legal right to unilaterally annex any of that land. Israel DOES continue to dispute the status of East Jerusalem. On one side of THAT dispute is Israel; on the other side is Every Other Nation On Earth. Which is rather telling, don't you think?
