    It's important in this day and age, to be consistent. Making claims to be a modern democracy functioning in 2011, does not sit well with abstract claims based on a 4,000 year old emotional relationship. Resorting to the "historical claim" over territories is a dead-end and a fundamental fallacy. It's clear that the two peoples have learned to accept that they're stuck together for better or worse, they're already doing business on every level.
