The Obama administration is attacking Israel as Hamas rockets rain down on the tiny Jewish state.
In denying Israel’s sovereignty, they are flouting international law. As Caroline Glick explains in her book, “The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East”: “Except during periods when he was physically barred from doing so — most recently during the Jordanian an occupation of these areas from 1949 to 1967 — Jews have lived in Judea and Samaria from time immemorial, just as they have lived in the rest of the historic land of Israel for the better part of 4000 years. Based on this historical connection, in 1922 the League of Nations granted the Jewish people sovereign rights to Judea and Samaria and the rest of Israel.
On May 15, 1948, the day the Jewish state declared independence, Jordan joined Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq in invading Israel with the intent of annihilating it. Jordan ended the war in possession of northern, southern, and eastern Jerusalem as well as today and Samaria. Under international law, this was an illegal war of aggression. All Jews who had been living in the areas that the Jordanians conquered were expelled from their homes hundred for massacred or taken captive in Jordan. The official position of the Israeli government is that Israel has a right to sovereignty over the areas.”
The San Remo Conference was attended by Great Britain, France, Italy, and Japan — with the United States as a neutral observer. It was held in San Remo, Italy, in April 1920, and resolved to incorporate the Balfour Declaration in Britain’s mandate in Palestine. Thus Britain was made responsible “for putting into effect the declaration made on the 8th [sic.] November 1917 by the British Government and adopted by the other Allied Powers, in favor of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people; it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
No ally of America in any part of the word can feel confident or secure with Obama in the White House, unless they are pursuing jihadist conquest.
This agreement between post-World War I allied powers (Britain, France, Italy, Japan) was adopted on April 25, 1920 during the San Remo Conference. The Mandate for Palestine was based on this resolution; it incorporated the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the Covenant of the League of Nation’s Article 22. Britain was charged with establishing a “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine. Terroritorial boundaries were not decided until four years after.
Even a deluded despot like Obama cannot change international law and international treaties by pumping his fist in the air.
There is no occupation. Islamic myths and lies.
