    "International law says the land belongs to the Jewish state" That argument is demonstrably false, because **all** of the arbiters of international law: the Int'l Court of Justice, the Israel High Court of Justice, the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly **all** accept as an indisputable point of law that Israel's status in the West Bank is that of an "occupying power", and that this territory is held under an Israeli "belligerent occupation". That alone is enough to disprove your claim, because it is axiomatic that int'l law that pertains to occupations say that a sovereign can not "occupy" its own sovereign territory. So if it's "occupied" by Israel then the one thing we **can** be sure of is this: it ain't "Israeli land".
