My #77 to Josh was about Israeli violation of UN resolutions and 4th Convention. You responded territory was taken from Jordan and UN did not recognize it as Jordan territory, and then said 1967 boundaries were armistice lines. Non-sequiturs You then misquoted UN242 and thought of old dead issue of "disputed" territory. Marvis jumped in, #80. He thinks nations keep territory won in war. He obviously hasn't read UN242. He talks of an "understanding"(s)which aren't juridical. When Israel occupied the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem, it was irrelevant who had held the territory, be it Jordan, Egypt, Nepal or Ouighers. They no longer played any role in Israeli/Palestine issue nor int'l law.Tim, I hold text of 242. If you misquote it and say you read it when you didnt, you are a liar. If you read it and claim it says something else, you are intellectually dishonest. I give you benefit of the doubt, you chose which applies: but, re boundaries, the word "negotiated" is not in the text.
