- except that you can't make 'valid' examples that easily. your cases aren't really good examples as they're about authoritarian regimes relating to their own people /formerly their own. you talk about a very different era (something always used as argument against israel when dealing w/what's lawful & acceptable) without any UN /international legal framework. also, britain 'granted' independence to lots of countries. where do you put east-timor in that scheme? that is a good example which particularly deals w/separating two peoples & ending occupation. why was northern ireland dealt with in a different framework as well? plus of course, bibi's not a king & israelis contrary to your claim aren't against pal. independence. in your #170 you also simplify. britain wasn't just feeling generous, it had largely been responsible for the whole process leading up to the creation of a jewish state for decades already, via balfour etc.
