    1) Consider: at the reading of a will the assets of the deceased is divided *thus* and *so*, but the beneficiaries immediately start a long-running fist-fight. Q: Did that fist-fight change the apportionment of assets? A: No, it did not i.e. no amount of fighting or shouting by the beneficiaries can invalidate the legality of the will. (2) Your statement is contradicted by the Palestinians themselves i.e. the PLO insists that it is the sole representative of the Palestinian people, and as such it is the sole recipient of the sovereignty that was vested in the "Arab state" by the Partititon Plan. Arafat made that just as plain in 1988 as Ben Gurion did in 1948 when he declared the state of Israel on the basis of Res 181. "The proposed Arab state by 1947 was dead and buried at the armistice agreement in 1949." Except.... it is a fact that the Palestinians themselves were not a party to that armistice agreement. You are going to struggle to argue that Egypt, Jordan and Israel can cook up a deal between them that extinguishes a right that was never vested in them in the first place......
