Israel, after signing an agreement with Egypt, withdrew from Egyptian territory. Re the Pals, it was never their territory. It was actually Jewish territory, though it is true that Pals lived there for a long time and that is significant. But its also true that Pals, who formed a majority in Jordan, played a very significant role in the expulsion of Jews, the killing of Jews and the attempt to contribute to the final solution. They also excluded Jews from their holy sites in Jerusalem, a city that Jews built and never voluntarily left. Maybe that is why the Pals were so keen to help Hitler. They knew that the Jews had a superior moral claim to Jerusalem. When they excluded Jews from Jerusalem and then treated the Jewish holy site as a dump and sewage site and then attacked Israel in 1967, they went too far. I should hope, given this history, that Israel is unyielding about Jewish entitlement to Jerusalem, not exclusive but entitlement.
