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.

"very serious real estate "

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.

UN has done that repeatedly. Israel will have to be driven out by force of violence as the Romans did. Their 2000 year solution beats your fantasy every time.
