Ownership is 9/10 of the law. Israel has "owned" the lands it "occupies" for almost 50 years now. Kind of like laws in the various states of the US, if you take care of or some piece of land for long enough, it effectively becomes yours. At what point in the past do we draw the line and say, "OK, all changes to state boundaries after this point are not recognized?" National borders have changed countelss times in just the last 100 years, let alone the whole of human history. Those holding onto hope of Israel ever relinquishing control of lands it's occupied and administered for the last 50 years are unfortunately living in a fantasy world. It is what it is, and as long as the US backs Israel, the status quo will become more entrenched.
