    "What makes you think that borders in the Middle East or anywhere else in the world have been etched in stone" I don't...but hey, you go ahead and make things up "..England and France the ME has changed border and land areas several times in the 20th century alone" Not since the UN. " Wars have changed borders as well. Just look at the most recent Ottoman Empire. Britain carved it up as she saw fit" Neither France or Brits CLAIMED ANY of the Ottoman Empire for themselves they occupied under Mandates designed to form Independent States of the territories they occupied. Israel has done the opposite. It has claimed territories it is occupying. Israel has illegally instituted Israeli civil law in "territories occupied".. It has not protected the occupied, it has usurped them. It has done so under protection against action by the UN UNSC Veto Vote on Chapter 7 resolutions. Chapter 6 resolutions still stand, the law still stands, Israel's breaches still stand.
