So the liars over at CfZ [Christians for Zion] are at it again with a ‘blog’ titled ‘What is Defined as Illegal?’ written by an anonymous ‘Administrator’
The blog goes on to lie about Israel’s claims to the OPTs [Occupied Palestinian Territories]
Here’s what they claim.
“It would appear that the EU totally discounts existing international legal agreements and prefers to interpret clauses in these agreements to suit its own agenda.”
Wrong. The EU are not making up their own “interpretations” to “suit its own agenda”. They, the EU, are following International law. The people who ARE making up their own interpretations are the Zionists.
They then go on about San Remo and the British mandate.
“a) The San Remo Treaty of 1920, in which the victors of the First World War parcelled out the remnants of the defeated Ottoman Empire, created a geographical area called Palestine along both sides of the Jordan River. It is still valid today.
b) Article 6 of the Palestine Mandate signed by the League of Nations in 1922 stipulated ‘close Jewish settlement’ on the land west of the Jordan River. The river served as the boundary because that year the UK created a new Arab country, today known as Jordan, by unilaterally bestowing the land east of the river onto the Hashemite dynasty and thus giving some three quarters of Palestine away”
Anyone following this blog will know that the whole San Remo Chestnut was blown clean out the water in blogs written here. I won’t go over it again but here are the links.
Next they go on about the UN Charter,
“c) The 1945 UN Charter, Chapter XII, Article 80 explicitly says than nothing within it shall ‘alter in any manner the rights whatsoever of any states or any peoples or the terms of existing international instruments to which Members of the United Nations may respectively be parties’.”
Article 80 which they refer to has been dubbed the “Eretz Israel article” by Zionist propagandists. But let me let you into a little secret which the Zionists fail to comprehend. If the Zionist claim that San Remo is still applicable were true then under article 80 of the UN charter Israel in its present form is illegitimate and has been so since Israel declared her borders based on UNGA res.181 as Israel’s independence and declared borders go totally against article 80 of the UN charter. More astonishingly Chris Proudlove told us only days ago that Article 80 is no longer applicable and now as if by magic it has become applicable once again.
Next they get into a real tangle.
“d) the claim that the Israeli settlements breach Article 49 of the Geneva Convention does not apply to the settlements. Written in the shadow of the deportation of European Jews to their deaths in Nazi Europe, it prohibits
‘individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or that of any other country, occupied or not…The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occu pies.’
But none of the Israelis living beyond the Green Line have been transferred or deported, forcibly or not; they all chose voluntarily to live there. (The only force ever used against these residents was in fact when Israel forcibly transferred them from Gaza into Israel in 2005.)
Here’s the problem that Zionists have. They tell so many lies [as they have to in order to try and cover the theft of Palestinian land] that sooner or later some of those lies get them tangled up.
Here’s what Haaretz says,
“Israel is trying to have its cake and eat it too. On the one hand, it did not annex the West Bank into its sovereign borders or apply Israeli civil law and administration there. Palestinian residents of the West Bank were not granted Israeli citizenship. Israel enacted military rule in the West Bank and operates by this authority. When, for example, Israel confiscates land for security purposes, it does so under the international laws of occupation (found in the Hague Conventions) that impart specific powers to military commanders in occupied territory. On the other hand, Israel claims that the Geneva Convention does not apply to the West Bank, so the restrictions included in the Geneva Convention do not apply. The result is that Israel sometimes acts in the territories as if they are part of its sovereign territory: establishing Israeli cities, communities and factories and applies Israeli law to Israeli citizens living in this territory. However, Israel simultaneously treats that West Bank as occupied territory, administering it under martial law, with the original inhabitants of the occupied territory, the Palestinians, not given the same status as Israeli citizens. While at the same time Palestinian inhabitants are not given the full rights of residents of an occupied territory, including the prohibitions preventing the occupying power from dispossessing them in favor of its own citizens. The Europeans are not willing to let grants they earmark for Israel to fund this policy.”
And here’s what the Independent UN inquiry says,
“Since 1967, the Mission’s report notes, Israeli governments have openly led, directly participated in, and had full control of the planning, construction, development, consolidation and encouragement of settlements.
“In compliance with Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention, Israel must cease all settlement activities without preconditions,”
Oh my! Maybe the Zionists would like to convince us that they only build them because they look pretty and were never intended for Jewish only occupants…..
e) The Geneva Convention applies to actions carried out on the territory of a ‘High Contracting Party’ with a sovereign claim to that territory. But the areas in question ov er the ‘Green Line’ never belonged to any sovereign power.”
Israel has never LEGALLY annexed ANY of the territory “over the Green line” PERIOD!
Mike Fryer in another of his latest blogs goes on a rant about ‘Indoctrinating our young people’ yet he is indoctrinating his own young people into the cult of Zionism and is sending these young people out into the real world armed with lies…Odious doesn’t even come close to describing these people.
