No, they decided that's where they would start. Nice gift the UN handed them, more than half of an occupied territory. If the UN was now to divide Israeli territory in half and give it back, and then recognize palestinians rights and suffering, and make Israelis stateless I guess that you'd be at the same place. Its' too bad that people like you simply cannot put yourself in someone else's shoes as a intellectual exercise without resorting to excusing your own side.
