    Analogy isn't a very fun or productive game. But if you want to look further at ideas. Take conquered East Jerusalem. Israel claims it by right of conquest. Ironic since that is how Ancient Israel claimed it too. They also claim and plan to annex large sections of the West Bank by right of conquest. And they will allow the Palestinians to negotiate for some scrapings or the privately owned land not already seized. Israel is unwilling even to follow its own law and pay rent past due for privately owned land it had confiscated in the past. Privately owned according Israeli records and according to the records Israel seized from Ramallah several years ago. But if you want to play analogy. Lets talk about the Hamptons on Long Island. Why can't the Nez Perce and the Shinecock and Shawnee and Oglala and Pawnee simply go and seize the Hamptons and tell the residents that they'll negotiate for the Golf Course and country club, if the residents are peaceful about it.
