CJ cannot grasp that international law may change with "fait accomply". It may take time,and the "status quo" of a particular situation may give place to redefinition of legal borders. Borders will be determined by political acts. Palestinian unilateral decision is a good move regardles of the fact that will be rejected at the S Council anyway) Israel will annex parts of West Bank and also will be rejected. So what? Those are political moves that create de facto situations, whose final status will be agreed upon the parts. In the meantime, without a western recognized border, Israel managed quite well tll now. Isn't it? Palestine will do as well with its own "liberated" piece. Israel will not invade. Another "status quo" might reign for another 100 years. Who cares if Gaza is part of Palestine. It is indeed another Palestine state, "de facto". Legality at the end of the day will meet reality on the ground.
