The land recognized by the international community as theirs? Historical presence and international law. The same international law that recognized/created an Israeli state.


Israel has historical presence. Does international law not apply to them? Apparently the international community recognized them in 1948. Is Palestine a member of the United Nations?

Not full status only becasue the US vetoes recognition, but in the General assembly the palestinains win overwhelmingly. Last vorte was something like 150 to 10 for the palestinians and justice.
