    Mr Bendavid is quite wrong on the law, the Geneva Conventions of 1949 have no bearing on the issue of self-defense. Since the Caroline incident there has been agreement that the using force in self-defense must be confined to the purpose of self-defense and cannot be used as a means of gaining territory - and that was agreed in 1842. The 1948 war was as a result of the refusal of the British to permit the UN to facilitate the partition resolution. The Zionist and Israeli military strategy was to secure the areas allocated to the Jewish State. In the course of the war this extended to 78% of Mandate Palestine. However, one might assess 1948. the International Court of Justice in its advisory opinion on the Wall in 2004 viewed the Armistice’s lines as international boundaries. Arieli’s argument thus has the addition weight of judicial authority.
