Policy, which was brought up recently by government ministers purportedly as a way to deter potential terrorists, was ruled out by state's top legal officials.03:29 10.02.16 | 0 comments
H asks whether, if Israel was conquered, the conquerors would give land back to Israel. And the answer must be -- it depends. If this might eventually happen due to Israel losing diplomatic relations and trade etc with the civilized world, it isn't very unlikely that the victors would want to maintain good relations with the civilized world themselves, and so they might try to follow precedent. The last time Germany was conquered most of it was returned to Germans. The victors held war crimes trials. A clear precedent. I'd expect attempts to assign responsibility for Israeli crimes past 80-90 years or so. (Surely it couldn't happen before 2030.) The victors set up one or more German governments following democratic principles. A precedent. They would allow surviving Israelis to leave if they wanted, and Return for palestinians. Israel with Palestinian majority. Jews exempted from military service and disarmed. Or maybe something with less precedent.
