    otherwise. And remember that we tried to use the whole international community thing to justify invading Iraq. Who is to say another country or groups of countries won't use that same premise in regards to a war with Israel to "bring it into compliance with international law". We ignored a Security Council veto why should not some one else do like wise.

    Israel was created by an act of the UN in 1947. Before 1947 there was no Israel. Only territory that had been conquered dozens of times by dozens of empires. Maybe there should not have been an uprising in 70 CE. But that is the last time you can talk about an Israeli state. The Palestinians get a state if the international community decides they get one.
