I think if historical precident is the determining factor then the Jews had better give Jerusalem back to the Canaanites from whom they took it. This would also include all Canaanite areas as described in Numbers 34:2. Clearly the Canaanites have historic precidence as evidenced by Eblaite records. There are also Sumarian records that show the region was occupied by Canaanites long before Moses. Ergo, the ultimate owners of the land are the descendents of the Canaanites which the Jews hold were not Jews, but people speaking another Western Semitic language, which Arabic is. Ergo, Israel - by historic argument - belongs to the Palestinnians. I do not accept that argument. I hold that Israel was the product of a civil war in the Palestinian Mandate which needs NO OTHER HISTORIC JUSTIFICATION. Israel exists. It is it's own argument. Israel is a fact created in 1948 by the survival of dedicated people in dire circumstances, and needs no other justification for existence.
