    You have been made aware that your comments on this subject are false. Why do you keep repeating them? Israel settlements on territory occupied in 1967 are illegal. Jews repeatedly report false facts about the Mandate. The Mandate was to establish in Palestine a national home for Jewish people, but said, clearly that nothing should be done which might prejudice civil or religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine. The word IRREVOCABLE was not in the Mandate.The Mandate, however, is irrelevant,because it expired on 14 May 1948, and from that date was no longer an instrument of international law, when Israel, under UN resolution 181, declared statehood. When Israel occupied the rest of Palestine in1967, and refused to withdraw from occupied territory, it was in violation of UN resolutions 242,452 and 465. When it built in the West Bank and annexed Jerusalem it was in violation of articles 49,53, and 147 of 4th Geneva Convention and thus committing a war crime.
