half Pal?', asks Joe from Philly. Because the UN has not insisted that Jerusalem retain its proposed international status, since Israel seized W J'sem. Therefore the status quo changed to Israel = West, Jordan = East. UNSCR 242 recognises that and ties it up legally: it doesn't say anything about Israel vacating W J'sem - but it does stipulate that it must withdraw from territories occupied in 1967. Israel occupied the Arab municipality of E J'sem in 1967 and, under 242, must vacate it and hand it back to the Arabs. That is how.
