The Legal Basis of Israel’s Rights in the Disputed Territories


1. Upon Israel’s taking control of the area in 1967, the 1907 Hague Rules on Land Warfare and the Fourth Geneva Convention (1949) were not considered applicable to the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) territory, as the Kingdom of Jordan, prior to 1967, was never the prior legal sovereign, and in any event has since renounced any claim to sovereign rights via a vis the territory.

Israel's Trojan Horses

Democracy, in Israel, as far as survival goes, has become at best a ludicrous bad dream, or, worse and most probable-- a nightmare -- a weapon used by Fifth Columnists aimed at destroying Israel as a democratic Jewish country. Israeli politics, like in the rest of the Western world, has become driven by one-sided Political Correctness - as if in an alternate world; a "twilight zone" has taken root in Israel, the USA, and the EU. Yes indeed, we have entered the Era of  #ScienceFictionPolitics.

Israel's biggest threat is not from the might of foreign armies, but rather from an enemy within, an enemy that is using the privileges of democracy to bring about its very demise.

Israel, a country the size of a ranch in the US or Australia, and whose very existence sits on a fence -- a pointy picket fence -- wishes to be a super-power in the Science Fictional World of Political Correctness, so adamantly, that she is willing to risk Her very existence.

So in the spirit of this ever-emerging absurd "Russian Roulette" style of law, a style that takes democracy to its outer limits, Israel welcomes into Her parliament (aka Knesset), those that fight daily to destroy Her. Yes, they are paid Members of Knesset that rake in their annual salaries and benefits, paid by Jewish taxpayers of Israel -- paying for their daily activities aimed at bringing Israel to disaster.

And as weird as it may seem, I may get into trouble for describing the situation as it is -- such is the status of "freedom of speech" these days. Much like in the USA today where one is considered a racist for describing the ongoing atrocities around the globe as "Islamic terror" - even when the terrorists themselves claim it is. The alternative to speaking one's mind about this, is to go silently into the night - so I speak, que sera sera.

 Horse #1 Achmad Tibi Former Adviser to Arafat

 Israel pays Arab Knesset members to lecture in the halls of the enemy, to say things such as:

 > "...Welcome to the thousands of shahids (martyrs)..."

> "...and blessings to our shahids within the Greenline..."

> "...those that the occupiers call terrorists while we say there is nothing more admirable than those that die for the homeland..."

Hard to believe? Here, take a gander: Ahmad Tibi - Israeli Arab MP, former adviser to Father of Modern Terrorism, Yasser Arafat, giving this speech:
Israeli-Arab Parliament Member 'Achmad Tibi'

Horse #2  Haneen Zoabi

 "...I don’t consider myself just a member of Knesset. We are part of the national project..."

"...Arab Knesset members are part of the 'Palestinian national project,' not Israel's political system..."














Hanin Zoabi tells Lebanese media she doesn't feel part of the Knesset, and her only role is to represent Palestinian 'struggle.'

Before the re-establishment of Israel in 1948, the Palestinians were Jews, as they had been for 2000 years.
The Arabs were... Arabs. Watch this short clip. Listen to the commentator.

Is Jordan Palestine? by Daniel Pipes and Adam Garfinkle

 Excerpts 1988 Article, Middle East Forum

. . ."nobody ever considered the two sides of the Jordan River anything but integral parts of a single land called Palestine." Many American supporters of Israel accept the Jordan-is-Palestine argument. Joan Peters premises her study, From Time Immemorial, on this notion. She routinely calls Israel a "corner of Palestine" and "Western Palestine," while "Eastern Palestine" is her term for Jordan. George F. Will states that "Jordan is Palestine-historically, geographically, ethnically."

A substantial body of opinion has developed in Israel and elsewhere which favors the snappy argument that Jordan is Palestine. Although closely associated with Ariel Sharon, the enfant terrible
