Abba Eban,Israels representative at the UN rejected resolution 242. He stated Israel would follow its own path..in other words continue the Occupation and illegal settlements in an attempt to keep land it is not legally entitled to.Israel was angered it was no allowed to keep occupied territory.That the borders remained unchanged. Yearly Israel recieves reminders to comply with Resolution 242. So it is pointless for Israeli's to hold it up in its defence when it refuses to comply with it and totally rejected it.
