    • "international law"
    • 20.03.10 | 06:00 (IST)

    Why not apply the same standard of "international law: to all the events that led up to the creation of the state of Israel. For example, look at how Britain reneged on it's initial intention to create a Jewish homeland in the mandate of Palestine. Then hand over 70% of it as Trans-Jordan to Saudi Princes who had never resided in the region. Then renege completely on any commitment to a Jewish-Palestinian homeland with the illegal White Paper of 1939. Where do you start assessing legality? What makes you choose 1948, or 1967 or older. How about this map of Israel?http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e8/1759_map_Holy_Land_and_12_Tribes.jpg
