Israel even have the arbitrary (read that as made up) borders!
Israel's borders were arbitrary in 1948, before the first Arab war. since then, it has established its own borders principally by winning the armed conflicts it was drawn into in 1948 and 1967.

I am hardly a fan of the way Israel conducts its foreign policy, but all this whining about it taking territory after winning wars drives me a little batty. had Palestine and certain other Arab nations been content with the way the civil war was proposed to be resolved in 1948, a whole helluva lot of heartache and bloodshed might have been avoided in the last 60+ years.
