    It's unbelievable that you are again quoting an expired treaty. Perhaps you don't know, expired means no longer valid. It doesn't seem to register when that is pointed out to you. You advise others to read history, but your repetition of such history is almost always irrelevant, or faulty, or in this case, factually wrong. The San Remo conference simply assigned the Mandate for Palestine to Britain. It did not address a de jure state of Israel. It defined no borders. It said: "The High Contracting Parties agree to entrust ...the administration of Palestine within such boundaries as may be determined by the Principal Allied Powers to a Mandatory." UN resolution 181, Part II, determined in meticulous detail the precise borders of the land over which Israel would have sovereignty. With the Israeli declaration of statehood, the Mandate expired. And with it San Remo. Neither San Remo nor the Mandate were any longer instruments of international law upon their expiration.
