    A huge chunk of Israel is not within the UN partition plan. The partition plan was going to give Israel 55% of Palestine minus Jaffa. The Arabs were supposed to get 45% of Palestine plus Jaffa with Jerusalem being an international entity until its long term future could be decided. After the war Israel had increased in size to 78% of mandate Palestine plus West Jerusalem which became a ceasefire line rather than an internationally reconsider border, even the Israeli government never considered it to be anything but a ceasefire line.. So fact s Israel has NEVER exited within formal borders both out of choice and becaus the partition plan border was never enforced. In 1967 we had another war and all that happened is the ceasefire lines changed again. In 1973 Israel gave Kinutra to Syria so yet another change. Israel has never had clear and legal borders.
