    "The recognition of Israel by the UN surely takes this declaration [of Independence] into account." (Zev) "Surely"? In your dreams. What such an institution takes into account, it scrupulously puts down in black on white. That is for sure. But let us suppose it did take our Declaration into account. Where does that lead us? As a member of the UN Organization, Israel stays bound to accept the obligations contained in the UN Charter, like any other state. Even as the homeland of the Jewish people. Yes, it is indeed a fact "that Jordan occupied and then illegally annexed the West Bank", and that "this annexation was recognized by only two countries", the United Kingdom, and perhaps Pakistan. Pakistan is usually stated to have recognized Jordan's annexation also, but this is dubious. See: "Rule of the West Bank and East Jerusalem by Jordan", in Wikipedia. "The intended international enclave of Jerusalem was divided between Israel and Jordan, both eventually annexing their portions." What you seem to have never been told, is that Israel's annexation of its own portion - the Western part of the city -, is still viewed by all the international community, up to this very day, as illegal as was then, in 1950, the annexation by the Hashemite Kingdom, of the Eastern part.
