17: "I understand you adherence to 'it`s VOLUNTARY obligations as a Declared Sovereign State..' is not absolute" Consider this: 1) A contract is placed in front of you. 2) Nobody can FORCE you to sign that contract. 3) But if you *do* sign it then your signature binds you i.e. you becomes obliged to the terms of that contract. CJ spoke of "VOLUNTARY obligations" as binding agreements that are VOLUNTARILY entered into i.e. he is not saying that the "obligation" is merely "voluntary" (which would be, of course, a contradiction). 17: "you brought instead 'Law came into being, forbidding the illegal acquisition of territory by war/force or unilateral annexation' " Treaty Law does rather require those little things called "treaties". Israel voluntarily signed those treaties, 17. 17: "The subject of International Law is the STATE not collection of residents of geographic area." Gosh! Last time I looked both Israel and Syria were STATES.
