This is why right wing scholars believe that land-for-peace is a scam:
Israel offered on Wednesday to start direct peace talks with Lebanon, saying all issues would be negotiable including a tiny piece of Israeli-held land on the countries’ border that Israel has long argued does not belong to Lebanon but that the Lebanese say is theirs.
When the UN clearly sided with Israel in this regard on June 16, 2000 saying,
After consultations throughout the weekend, the Security Council this afternoon endorsed the work done by the United Nations as mandated by the Security Council, including the Secretary-General’s conclusion that, as of 16 June, Israel had withdrawn its forces from Lebanon in accordance with Security Council resolution 425 (1978).
This brand of diplomacy completely undermines credibility. Israel needs to go back to signaling school.
