It was taken on the 65th anniversary of the vote to divide the former British mandate of Palestine into two states, one Jewish and one Arab, a vote Israel considers the international seal of approval for its birth.
I do believe that land was legally acquired. First Nations may not quite have understood the deal...and a hell of a deal it was, but there was a process entered in to...not like much of the rest of the US. And some of Canada, so it seems.

The UN sits on land taken from native Americans and has the nerve to "rebuke" Isreal.

Real independence, however, remains an elusive dream until the Palestinians negotiate a peace deal with the Israelis,
izrael didnt bother to check with anyone when they declared independence. They just took land by force.
Whats going on is INSANE.
By izrael's logic, if Palestine were able to bomb and kill the izraelis off of "their" land (which was stolen from Palestinians), then Palestine could simply keep the land, dictate the "new borders" to map publishers and blackmail governments into giving their stamp of approval...
And the global media/propaganda network would act as though this is normal.
