    The vast majority of current Israelis came into the neighborhood where Palestinians had been living for centuries if not millennia as permanent residents and owners. Particularly the more recent arrivals barged in without any civilities to the rightful owners, the Palestinians. There is no need for a government in order to establish ownership rights. Estonia and Latvia became independent states only in the 20th century with over 2000 years of continual residency and ownership of their lands. Nobody questions our right to be here, as you question the Palestinians rights to be in Mandatory Palestine. The Turks were not obnoxious to the Palestinians, nobody was until the Jewish immigrants began to behave badly towards the Palestinian locals with more rights to reside there than the newly arrived Jews. The entire issue is respect of neighbour's rights. Khaled calls for the Syrians to fight, and Kobi demands state documents. Such documents exist in international law.
