    "Disputed" is a euphemism for "under military occupation." When modern Israel was founded, it was allotted certain territory. Everything else is holds is militarily occupied. You and many Israelis seem to think that the Geneva Conventions that Israel signed don't apply to Israel. Why this is is unfathomable. The Conventions that Israel signed do not contain any language that says, "except Israel" or "except in the case of defensive war." You should read the conventions sometime. You'll be enlightened. All the exceptions and counter-reasoning is invalid, because there are none. They are multinational treaties and all signatories have to agree on exceptions. Israel can accept that or withdraw from them. So yes, those disputed areas are not-Israel under the Laws of Nations. Negotiate a treaty and some of them might become part of Israel some day. The right of conquest expired before 1948. Get over it.
