I thought of putting this question in the Gaza Strip thread, but it isn't directly related to it.

Is there absolute proof of who actually owns the Gaza Strip, either from Scripture or other sources?

God owns it and He hasn't given it to any particular person, tribe, nation or religious organization. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> Of course, the Pre-Tribbers will rail at that statement but they have no biblical warrant to do so. For example, see here:

Israel faught and won the six day war so by rights Gaza is theirs. They are now giving it away for the sake of peace.

The Six Day War was the first major Arab attempt since 1948 to destroy Israel. In November 1966, an Egyptian-Syrian Defense Agreement was signed, encouraging the Syrians to escalate tensions, which reached a climax in the spring of 1967.

May 14: Egypt mobilizes its forces in and around the Suez Canal.

May 16: Egypt moves it forces eastward across the Sinai desert towards the Israeli border, demanding the withdrawal of UN Emergency Force (UNEF) stationed along the frontier.

May 19: The Egyptians expelled the UN Emergency Force (UNEF) from the Gaza Strip and Sinai, and continued pouring its military forces into these areas.

May 22: Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping, constituting a casus belli for Israel.

May 24-June 4: Answering the Egyptian call, the governments of Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Lebanon moved their forces toward the Israeli border. Israel mobilized its reserve forces, and launched a diplomatic campaign to win international support for ending the Egyptian blockade of Israeli shipping through the Strait of Tiran.
