I'm guessing you're American, Brant, brought up on stories of settlers seizing land at gunpoint from the locals and creating a new nation by bringing in people from across the sea. The USA and Israel have quite a lot in common which is probably why the USA has been Israel's strongest supporter. However, if you look at the history of modern Europe, most people eventually give back almost all the land they take. You say Russia kept the tiny Kiril islands. Well, yes, and rather more significantly it kept Konigsberg/Kaliningrad too, but it gave back the whole of the rest of Eastern Europe and half of Germany. Don't you think that's rather more important? Israel will eventually give back almost all the land it captured. The only question is how many lives and how many years will be wasted before it does.
