    or refugee status? De facto yep Joe Sittizen. There is only a before the UN and an after the UN. Anything prior to 1948 is now established history and status quo, anything since is live and legal. (They made an exception for WW2 Nazi war criminals). Ancient history about what happened to the Red Indians or Aborigines has no more international legal relevance (civil and humanitarian relevance, yes) today than what the Mongols did in Hungary or Cortes in South America. The world started with a clean slate in 1948 and a determination to prevent future occupation by force, genocide, war crimes, colonial repression, etc. That is why there are UN troops in Sierra Leone, Lebanon, Darfur, Afghanistan etc. It is also why there are so many UN resolutions involving Israel, which seems to have serious learning difficulties about what is and isn't permitted in the modern age..
