    like israel's occupation and purported "annexation" (at least Jordan's annexation law actually specified it was a law o annexation) was also null and void. By the way, how can Israel be the owner of E Jerusalem. Israel was a non-entity before it's creation. It declared independence within the borders the UN specified for the Jewish state, which excluded Jerusalem as part of either of the two states (Jewish or Palestinian). It was meant to be an international zone. So it was never in the ownership of Israel under international law. Thus, it wasn't captured by Jordan off of Israel. So Israel today is in the position Jordan was, no one recognized Jordan's annexation and declaration of Jerusalem as it's second capital. Btw, Jordan captured it pre-1948. So they were harsher to Jordan. Israrl still complains though.
