Ebban's reference to the right to exist being independent of other governments' recognition of it reminded me of Ben-Gurion's statement about the British Mandate: "I say on behalf of the Jews that the Bible is our Mandate, the Bible which was written by us, in our own language, in Hebrew in this very country. That is our Mandate. It was only the recognition of this right which was expressed in the Balfour Declaration."
