    Oh, well - we'd better give most of Europe back to Germany and a large part of The Orient to Japan then. Someone recreate the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires too, if victor's justice is so out of order. Thing is, if you try to claim stuff that is yours through violence, and you lose the war you start, these are natural consequences. Except in Israel of course, where the majoity of the population would be happy to let a newly-invented people self-determine on significant areas of Jewish land just in return for peace and not killing Israelis. But it seems too much to ask.
