The date the UN voted for partition was in 1947, the Jews living in the land accepted it, the Arab countries said they would drive the Jews into the sea, an attempt started in 1948. During the war, Jordan took over Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, killing Jews there in violent massacres. In 1967, when Egypt and Syria attacked Israel, the Israelis asled Jordan to refrain from attacking. But Jordan joined it and was driven out of the lands they occupied for less than 20 years. Amd when the peace treaty was signed, Jordan did not want these lands back. (Incidentally, they were never part of the partition given to the Arabs in 1947.)So what does everyone meanby 1967 borders or "occupation"? Furthermore, people talk about apartheid who have never been to Israel. Arabs live within Israel, they elect representatives to the Knesset, some of whom express views indicating they prefer not to serve Israel's legislature. Erekat has said the Palestinian state must not have any Jews.
