    Res 242 does not include "all" or even "the" territories occupied by Israel no matter how much wishing the Arabs do. Although settling occupied territory is against international law one must consider two points. 1. If 242 does not require the withdrawl from "all" the territories then whatever territories are agreed to be forfeited are not in fact illegally occupied. Until those lands are determined through the prescribed negotiations, it is not possible to say which part of the settlements, if any, are illegal. 2. Although the US certainly considers land occupied through aggression to be illegal, the fact that they were key drafters and signers of Res 242 obviously shows that they do not consider that to be the case here. Every president, except the peanut farmer, has supported the idea that Israel will not be required to withdraw from "all" the territories it occupied as a result of its defensive actions
