    You'd think people who claim doctorates would be able to read a simple legal text, apparently this is not so. First of all, there is a French and an English text of the resolution, both have the same legal status. Secondly, the English text is no less clear than the French. It starts out reaffirming the inadmissibility of acquisition of territory through force. It goes on to state that Israel must withdraw from territories occupied and that means all territories, unless there is some negotiated solution. The BS about "secure and recognized borders" that every settler-hugging hack who mentions R242 is just that, BS. The resolution says that both sides have the right to live in security within their recognized borders. That's it, there is for example a very apparent lack of any "oh by the way, Israel is allowed to break the UN statute and can annex whatever land it feels like". Not that that is going to stop people from continuing to misinterpret the resolution.
