High-ranking Central Command officer sees attacks lasting for months, doesn't rule out further escalation; Ya'alon: Israel will expand West Bank fence.01:56 26.11.15 | 1 comments
of course that will have to follow whatever legally binding framework there is. but frankly, the fact that jerusalem once was meant to be a corpus separatum etc seems to me to be about as relevant as the original US constitution granting voting rights to a portion of the male population only at the time, not to mention excluding all the females. there's nothing i can see binding the parties to even mention that aspect w/even one word in the coming talks, whatever the relevancy once may've been. adding to all this that the legal framework everybody is up in arms about, at least since UNSCR 242 gives plenty room for at least 2 different interpretations (& again, not mentioning status of jerusalem, which it could've done). as far as i'm concerned, the separatum idea was dead the moment israel had taken over east-jerusalem in -67, if not killed already by jordan in -49, & UNSCR 242 sealed & buried it for good. cheers.
