The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
is lawful and given the Arab attack in 1967 it was indeed lawful. As to withdrawing from lawfully occupied territories, the occupier must withdraw but not before it has proper assurances of security, as in renunciation of violence, recognition, etc. What is unprecedented, and what international law does not talk about, is the unimaginable, the very thing that has happened in the occupied territories. And that is the those that were lawfully occupied refusing to provide the necessary assurances and recognition. There are principles in law that do suggest that over time their claims are weakened and even forfeited, especially with violent behaviour.
