It’s simple. Territory confirmed by the Government of Israel on the 22nd May 1948 as “outside of the state of Israel”, is not Israeli

by default, what is not Israeli.

Israel did not define its borders in 1948 = a ghastly LIE!

Israeli Government statement made on the 22nd May 1948 to the UNSC AFTER declaring, AFTER being recognized :

"the above areas, outside the territory of the State of Israel, are under the control of the military authorities of the State of Israel, who are strictly adhering to international regulations in this regard"

"the Government of the State of Israel operates in parts of Palestine outside the territory of the State of Israel"

"sallies beyond the frontiers of the State"

"the above operations in areas outside the State of Israel"

"No area outside of Palestine is under Jewish occupation but sallies beyond the frontiers of the State of Israel have occasionally been carried out by Jewish forces for imperative military reasons, and as a part of an essentially defensive plan"

The document shows us that:
A) Israel did have borders, acknowledged by the Israeli Government in 1948
B) It acknowledges two separate entities. The State of Israel and Palestine (outside the territories of the State of Israel)
C) It acknowledges that Israeli forces were operating in Palestinian territory, i.e., what remained of Palestine outside of Israel
D) It acknowledges territories under Israeli military control. Which meant they were occupied according to the “international regulations” at the time, the Laws and Customs of War on Land (Hague IV); October 18, 1907 Art. 42 SECTION III

  1. Your entire premise is flawed. Yes, TODAY, it is illegal to acquire territory by force, but it wasn’t at the time Israel was created. The law was only just coming into use. The UN Charter (which Israel had not yet ratified) was brand new and thus not customary international law just yet, and the Fourth Geneva Convention had yet to be written. Keep in mind that the borders of Europe were essentially being redrawn at the time. Israel was well within it’s rights to annex the territory it took in accordance with the laws at the time (especially since it took over what was essentially non-sovereign territory, as there was no Palestinian state, and UN General Assembly resolutions, like the Partition Plan, are legally non-binding).

    • States don’t ratify the UN Charter pal. It’s the same for all UN Members. Binding in its entirety.

      Israel was created in 1948 and swore to uphold International law. The UN Charter was written in 1945. 1945 comes before 1948. Read some UN resolutions. For example res 242 [ ] it reflects the UN Charter re-the inadmissibility of acquiring territory by force, as do many other resolutions reminding Israel of the law and the UN Charter. You might also read the Montevideo Convention on the Rights and Duties of States 1932

      Israel didn’t annex any of the territories it acquired by war in 1948 1949. You can to cite the annexation agreement… right ?? thx I’ll wait

      Read the LON Mandate Article 7 re- Palestinian Statehood [ ] Palestine Nationality Law was adopted in 1925. Jews could become citizens of the Nation State of Palestine

      As for UNGA res 181 and partition, read Rabbi Silver’s words to the UN accepting the resolution as “binding” [ ]

      BTW All law is binding and the UN Charter is binding. The Laws and UN Charter expressed in ANY UN resolution are binding.

      Take your bullsh*t elsewhere

  2. Thank you,

    I’ve been unashamedly plagiarising information from your site for years, without citations, at Huffington Post – I do hope you don’t mind too much:)

    The misinformation from Israel’s apologists that I encounter every day at that site would be astounding if i didn’t realise that much of it is provided by the Israeli governments several misinformation (propaganda) agencies.

    • No problem Tony. If you use the links to information I provide in posts that’s all I ask. They’re mostly to irrefutable sources like the UN/UNSC or Israeli Government statements.

      • Thank you.

        I try to get by on my own, but have found your site an invaluable treasure trove of valuable information, a lot of it confirming and amplifying that which (and I hope I don’t appear to be too big-headed) I have found for myself.

        It’s my usual practice to cite documents that you have led me to or which I have found myself, but I confess that I sometimes miss out those links.

        Certainly, if I am asked for “evidence,” I do cite and link to source materials.

        One of the interesting things that I have found at HP is that Israel’s apologists very rarely cite any substantiating sources, even when challenged. I get responses like “do your own research” to my own requests for sources! This is typical:-

        “”No hyperbole”
        So where are the links to the relevant contemporaneous documents (and, if they are lengthy documents, to the portions therein) that must exist for your assertions to be valid and which demonstrate that validity?”
        Robert Eckert on 2 Nov 2013 at 03:03:18
        “I am not going to go through the history of those years if you really are totally ignorant about them.”

        You would think that the Israeli propaganda machinery would supply its hasbarist trolls with sources to the assertions that they relay. It seems the least that they should do to support their minions!

        Thanks again. Keep up the good work!
