    So what. It will change nothing. Israel received recognition from the world in '48 not because of 181, but because as a nation she successfully defended herself from all those loser Arab states who immediately attacked and tried to destroy her. If they had won, Israel would not be a country today. It was their failure that effectively legitimized Israel, certainly not the UN. To this day only two of the Arab states actually recognize Israel while many of the rest are still technically at war with whatever it is that they still don't recognize. None of which changes the fact that Israel is a legitimate nation with as much a right to exist as any other. The only way "Palestine" will become de facto a nation is by sitting down with the nation of Israel and realistically negotiating a border and terms. Deal with it already. Quit playing games and give your people a break so they can exercise their rights in a new nation. Much has changed since the armistice lines were set in '67 but not everything. They are not borders and were never intended to be. Israel will absolutely not sacrifice security nor should she be expected to do so. One other thing is for sure - you can not go back to '67. The situation as it was then is long gone.
