Let me make this loud and clear to all people who have no understanding of international law concerning the ME conflict:
No UN resolution can override Israel's existing legal rights and title of sovereignty over any region of the Land of Israel based on the following earlier acts of International Law: The Jan Smuts Resolution of January 30, 1919, Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, including the Treaty of Versailles of June 28, 1919, the San Remo Resolution of April 25, 1920, the Mandate for Palestine as confirmed on July 24, 1922 and the Franco-British Convention of December 23, 1920, all of which recognized the historical connection of the Jewish People with the Land of Israel.
The Arabs have already received their lands under the Mandate system. It does not include "Palestine".
