Solution to the Israel-Palestinian dispute

Apse, Hagia Sophia, originally uploaded by vittoriosa.

The argument against Israel's existence is that the land was taken by force and they ought to give it back to the previous occupants. If one accepts the argument then Turkey should return Constantinople to Greece. It was, after all, bombarded by the Turks and the inhabitants massacred in 1453 so this is obviously an unjust occupation just like Israel. Perhaps the Israelis should offer to depart from their country on condition that the Turks hand back Constantinople. I think they would be safe to assume that the offer would never be taken up.
