    Howdy Johnboy; If borders are determined by sovereignty, then Areas C in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Golan Heights, and the Shebaa Farms belong to Israel and Areas A & B in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip belong to the Palestinians. I don't think that you want to go there. Who cares about world opinion unless the world is going to do something about it? Is the UN going to do squat about China's annexation of Tibet? I doubt it when China has veto power in the Security Council and when nobody wants to go to war with China over the issue. In fact, the CIA World Factbook no longer recognises Tibet as a sovereign country; it is now officially recognised by the U.S. as a province of China. If Israel can resist all comers who try to take her sovereign territory away, then it, in effect, is hers. The Arabs are in no position to be making territorial demands, but if they are willing to compromise on the borders, then I think that something reasonable can be worked out w.r.t. borders.
