Israel was recognised from 1948-1967 by the international community within specified borders. Israel can't then just claim a whole new lot of land and build Jews-only settlements while refusing to give the indigenous inhabitants Israeli citizenship. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Ayalon's argument is so weak and contradictory that it's laughable. Even though Israel may have refused to define its boundaries after 1948, the world did it for Israel. That's the price of recognition. You want to be recognised by the world, play by the world's rules. Israel has no claim to the West Bank, and IF IT DID it should have offered the territory's inhabitants Israeli citizenship, rather than adopting its apartheid approach of settling the land with Jewish Israeli citizens while keeping the real owners of the land as voteless, stateless serfs. Ayalon might be interested to know that the inhabitants of Western Sahara all have Moroccan citizenship. Morocco hasn't tried to steal the land without its people, like Israel has always wanted to do with the West Bank. Ayalon's trying to have it both ways and none of it works.
