Until it declared its independent state status, Israel was an independent non-state actor. Israel unilaterally declared its independence during a period when Britain was feeling generous and didn't feel like suppressing independence. Instead others objected. 242 and 338 did not contemplate the Palestinians. If they declare independence, Israel will be in the British role, except Israel never was given the Palestinian Territories in trust. It took them by conquest. You can call it a defensive conquest, but the locals did not invite the Israelis to conquer them. The US was a non-state set of actors before it declared independence. King George objected, but ultimately conceded that we would not remain English or governed by the English crown. We tried negotiating and like the Palestinians ran into a blank wall. Parliament and King George also wanted a peaceful resolution. But were unwilling to concede our points so we declared the relationship over.
