Everyone talks about international law relating to the occupied territories. Has anyone bothered to check what the definition of occupation is under international law ? I suggest anyone who is really interested in the subject check article 43 of the Hague Convention of 1907 to see what constitutes occupation under international law. And if anyone laughs at "1907", check and see if there has been a change in any international treaty relating to that definition. There is none, not in the Geneva conventions, which deal with the treatment of peoples under occupation, without changing the definition. And remember - the UN does not make international law. it passes resolutions most of which are not enforced or are ignored. But when it wants to create international law, it turns to the sovereign states for signature and passage in the parliaments of those states. An example was the treaty on terrorism which was proposed before the sovereign states in 1999 but was never ratified because not enough countries ratified it. The term - International Law and the corresponding statement - Israel is violating international law - is thrown around way too loosely by people who have no concept of what constitutes international law.
