Jewish religious beliefs and international law don't mix well. When the Israeli tribes crossed from Jordan into Canaan, also know as Palestine, the land was occupied by semite tribes, Amorites, Hittites, and Jebusites. They weren't called Arabs, but the Israelites weren't called Jews, Those words came later.The Jebusites built Jerusalem and Israelites lived over 100 years in Canaan before replacing the Jebusites in the city. It was also a Babylonian, Assyrian, Persian, Byzantine, Arab, Hellenic, European, Mamluk, and Ottoman city. By building settlements in the West Bank and annexing Jerusalem,Israel is in violation of international law. It is in violation of at least 3 UN resolutions and 3 articles of the 4th Geneva Convention, thus committing a war crime. Jewish religious beliefs do not supersede international law. If international law had to conform to religious beliefs of Judaism, Christianity, Islam Hinduism, Buddhism,Taoism, Shintoism,etc.,there would be no international law.
