    ARTICLE 1

    The state as a person of international law should possess the following qualifications: a ) a permanent population; b ) a defined territory; c ) government; and d) capacity to enter into relations with the other states.

    ARTICLE 3

    The political existence of the state is independent of recognition by the other states. Even before recognition the state has the right to defend its integrity and independence, to provide for its conservation and prosperity, and consequently to organize itself as it sees fit, to legislate upon its interests, administer its services, and to define the jurisdiction and competence of its courts.

    ARTICLE 4

    States are juridically equal, enjoy the same rights, and have equal capacity in their exercise. The rights of each one do not depend upon the power which it possesses to assure its exercise, but upon the simple fact of its existence as a person under international law.
    ARTICLE 5

    The fundamental rights of states are not susceptible of being affected in any manner whatsoever.

    ARTICLE 9

    The jurisdiction of states within the limits of national territory applies to all the inhabitants.

    Nationals and foreigners are under the same protection of the law and the national authorities and the foreigners may not claim rights other or more extensive than those of the nationals.

    ARTICLE 11

    The contracting states definitely establish as the rule of their conduct the precise obligation not to recognize territorial acquisitions or special advantages which have been obtained by force whether this consists in the employment of arms, in threatening diplomatic representations, or in any other effective coercive measure. The territory of a state is inviolable and may not be the object of military occupation nor of other measures of force imposed by another state directly or indirectly or for any motive whatever even temporarily.

    These apply to North, South and Central AMERICAN states. They have no bearing on what the rest of the world is doing and therefore your post is off topic.
    In case you hadn't noticed, this is the Israel/Palestine Board.

    Oh Dear Lord. Can you imagine the bloodbath of Palestinians killing each other if they had their own Palestinian State with self determination?
