    "Who was majority in any place for any time before any day is irrelevant in the eyes of International Law (as Serbia had to learn at great expense in Kosovo". That was my contention in #108. You failed to address it. A discussion of who establishes International Law and should or can interpret it and how - will not do, and sounds rather like dodging the issue. I offered you the Serbian case as an example. Show its irrelevancy, or present a counter-example. "If the Palestinian Arabs would REALLY be interested in peace, they would be willing to recognize Israel as the state for the Jewish people/nation" (Tim R) Absurd. We successfully negotiated peace treaties with two of our neighbour states without even thinking about extracting from them such a definition of country. A state for the Jewish people/nation is the first tenet of Zionism. Only deceitful politicians unwilling to end our armed occupation of a stateless population are demanding that the Palestinians choose representatives more Zionist than Pres. Sadat and King Hussein. For a refutation, I can't do better than Haaretz editorialist. Read "Who wants a Jewish state", November 15, 2007. "Such a deal would solve ... " (Tim R) No deal can be struck but in the course of fair and serious negotiations. Hamas and our own religious fanatics are not interested in such negotiations. The current situation is very convenient for them. It only helps them advance their causes. "Time is against us. Demographically, it works for the Palestinians, and politically, in favor of Hamas and the settlers." Ami Ayalon, former head of Israel's internal security service (Shabak), in Dec 22, 2001. "We are running out of time for a Two-state Solution", Akiva Eldar, August 16, 2008. www.fmep.org/analysis/analysis/ we-are-running-out-of-time-for-a-two-state-solution
