a: "In other words, Israel is acting legally, until sanctions will be issued against it." So no action contrary to int'l law can be "illegal" until the UNSC declares that the offender is under sanction? That does run afoul of two problems: Problem 1) If your argument is correct then why is there an International Court of Justice???? That court would appear to be superfluous (indeed, a contradition) under your "logic" Problem 2) The UN Charter charges the UNSC to impose Ch7 sanctions in the name of "world peace and security" i.e. a nation can be sanctioned without ever doing anything "illegal". Iran is a case in point: it is under Ch7 sanctions, but the UNSC does not make any pretense that Iran has violated the terms of the NTP. Read the UN Charter: the UNSC is a SECURITY council, it does NOT need to make a finding of "illegality" in order to apply sanctions, nor MUST it apply sanctions when it decides that an act is "illegal".
