    But if you look at a map of the partition lines, Egypt couldn't attack the newly-founded Israel without crossing the land allocated by the partition to Arabs, unless they wanted the "useless" Negev. Jordan also had a small section of border with the Galilee--so why did they decide to infringe on the Arab land to attack Israel on the coastal plain? No, the Arab plan was as declared--the total destruction of Israel. If the plan had really been for the protection of the Palestinian Arabs, the attack lines of the Arab armies would have been completely different. Once there was a cease-file, why didn't the Jordanians and Egyptians relinquish their claims on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, respectively? The Arab occupation of these areas was illegal under international law. When a country counter-attacks, it's not called greed, but self-preservation.
