Further to my earlier post about the use of human rights in lawfare against Israel, Professor William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has brought us a brilliant video by Professor Eugene Kontorovich, an international law expert, who explains the legal case for Israel.
One of the best explanations of the legal and political background is presented in this video by Northwestern Law Professor Eugene Kontorovich. He puts the lie to the currently fashionable notion that the “1967 borders” have any legal or historical signficance, and demonstrates that Israel does not “illegally occupy” the West Bank. In fact, it was Jordan which illegally occupied the West Bank prior to 1967.
For further context see the write-up at Elder of Ziyon.
You can watch the video over at Legal Insurrection or you can watch it right here below. It’s a bit longer than the usual quick video clips, but you won’t be sorry you invested the time.
