"...'The US government policy has been based on the principle that there can be no acquisition of territory by war.'"
"Not only does this sweeping... statement necessarily include Jerusalem; it can easily be interpreted as saying that the only borders Israel can legitimately claim are the UN partition borders from 1947 since much of the land that makes up the 1949 armistice lines was acquired in war..."
This is very disconcerting.
Israelis arrest teenage suicide bomber
May 22, 2005
NABLUS, West Bank (Reuters) - Israeli soldiers arrested a Palestinian teenager with a bomb belt tied around his waist at a checkpoint near the West Bank city of Nablus on Sunday, the army said.
Troops manning the Hawara checkpoint near Nablus became suspicious of a Palestinian teenager passing through on Sunday evening, an army spokeswoman said.
"The teenager was asked to lift up his shirt and it revealed a bomb belt containing two pipe bombs tied around his waist," she said.
The youth apparently intended to detonate the bombs at the checkpoint by igniting a crude detonator with a cigarette lighter, the spokeswoman said.
Palestinian residents identified the youth as 15-year-old Ahmed al-Nadi from the Askar refugee camp. He was taken for questioning and his bomb was defused by sappers.
The army spokeswoman said it was the 14th time in the past two months that a Palestinian teenager had attempted to detonate a bomb or smuggle arms and explosives through a military checkpoint despite a de facto truce declared in February.
The 1948-1949 territories were taken by Israel as a result of an Arab war to destroy the new State of Israel.
The 1967 territories were taken by Israel as a result of an Arab war to destroy the 19 years old State of Israel.
Those were facts, not possibilities, no matter what someone's propaganda says.
The right of Israel to keep the land taken in 1967 is the same right it has to keep the land it taken in 1948-1949.
That is what a logical person/ leader would say.
But politics aren't logical, they are dirty.
