Google "Internet giant Google has changed the tagline on the homepage of its Palestinian edition from 'Palestinian Territories' to 'Palestine'. The change, introduced on 1 May, means now displays 'Palestine' in Arabic and English under Google's logo. Using the word Palestine is controversial for some. Israeli policy is that the borders of a Palestinian state are yet to be agreed." Good but daring move.

Who decides they are illegal?

The same international community that gave your country a chance in the first place.

What do you mean "decidedly not your country"? Why doesn't China leave Tibet?

Because the CCP doesn't want to. I don't excuse it. You can't try to paint me as a hypocrite, because I don't hold views to Tibet the same way you hold views to your country.

Prove to me why Judea and Samaria belong to a country that never existed before?

Again, if you are going to argue that a people must be organized into a modern nation state to be able to exist unmolested, then you must similarly argue Israel has no right to exist.

So stop it.
