Squaring the Circle...

The sampling process then re-engages and, assuming the violence continues unabated, a further parcel of land is thereby delineated and assigned to whoever. The area this covers would then be some 2 sq. km. Subsequent infractions might trigger another penalty; 4 sq. km. After that, it's 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 sq. km. . . . . . . . . A natural progression; it soon ramps up to some very serious real estate indeed.

Real estate is not 'territory'. Territory must be legally annexed to an already existing state.

I stand corrected, Talknic. But the term 'real estate' is only a literary device here; any interpretation as to its legal meaning is best left to a later date.

Personally i think the best outcome would be for the state of israel to swallow the whole palestine. Israel's government is just better than gaza's.
