comment Recognition of Palestine?
@DVK I am not sure, but this is what Wikipedia says: "Jordan formally annexed the West Bank and East Jerusalem on April 24, 1950, giving all residents automatic Jordanian citizenship. West Bank residents had already received the right to claim Jordanian citizenship in December 1949." As for Tibet, its citizens seem to enjoy all rights as the rest of the Chinese.

comment Recognition of Palestine?
@DVK As for why West Point and Gaza are considered occupied territories now, I think it is fair to say that a people may be considered to be occupied when they do not enjoy as a group the rights of other citizens. Maybe this is the reason the UN considers these territories to be occupied only when they came under Israel. Any ideas?

comment Why did the USA take no action to help Pakistan during their 1971 war against India?
@BROY There is a very significant difference between personal friendships and alliances between governments. While many remain loyal to their personal friends throughout their lives, this is not true for alliances between governments. This is because the merits or demerits of an alliance between governments may not be appreciated by everyone. Moreover, many Americans felt that humanitarian considerations and risk of involvement outweighed considerations of loyalty towards Pakistan. As an Indian, I can say that the USSR too was of not much help to India in its war against China in 1962.

Was this not harmful to the Allied war effort? If so, why did the other Allied countries not object to this?

@Luke Since all these things could easily be disrupted by the enemy powers, how safe was this? And what about traveling?

comment Is there any speech dialogue on record on Palestine independence day given by the Great Britain Prime minister?
From what we understand, Palestine is not independent. In 1988 Palestine Authority was given autonomy to regulate the internal affairs of Palestine.
