    "Palestinians need to accept Israel as their rightful government, same as the all the rulers before." Which century are you living in Tzivi, the rights of colonial conquest went out of the window in the 1860s? I hope not to be the one to be breaking this to you, but Israel's supposed 'annexation' of E J'sem has no validity whatsoever in international law. It is illegal, trumped-up, phony, make-believe. The guys who instituted it may well appear one day in front of the International Criminal Court for the biggest financial swindle since Madoff. The property laws are basically being rigged, undermined and circumnavigated to get Palestinian homeowners out and Jewish zealots in, as part of a deliberate policy of what amounts to ethnic cleansing by successive Israeli governments. 'Accept Israel as their rightful government' indeed! Jeeze, Jewish diaspora folk are imagining they are Roman legionnaires now!
