Israel ties itself up in a knot with these ludicrous "half-pregnant" declarations. Israel has NEVER claimed that it has annexed either the Golan Heights or East Jerusalem. N.E.V.E.R. It has only ever passed legislation that states that Israel can apply ITS OWN LAWS, rather than (as it is obliged to do) apply MILITARY LAW. That is a long, long, long way short of claiming that Israel has annexed that territory. It is a ludicrous legislative sleight-of-hand that amounts to Israel arguing that *even* *though* it doesn't have sovereignty over the territory it can still act *as* *if* this was Israeli sovereign territory. Man, it's one thing to lie to everyone else, but why do you insist on deceiving yourselves????
