ISRAEL KNOWS OCCUPATION ILLEGAL

Secret memo shows Israel knew Six Day War was illegal

By Donald Macintyre
Published: 26 May 2007

A senior legal official who secretly warned the government of Israel after the Six Day War of 1967 that it would be illegal to build Jewish settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories has said, for the first time, that he still believes that he was right.

The declaration by Theodor Meron, the Israeli Foreign Ministry's legal adviser at the time and today one of the world's leading international jurists, is a serious blow to Israel's persistent argument that the settlements do not violate international law, particularly as Israel prepares to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the war in June 1967.

The legal opinion, a copy of which has been obtained by The Independent, was marked "Top Secret" and "Extremely Urgent" and reached the unequivocal conclusion, in the words of its author's summary, "that civilian settlement in the administered territories contravenes the explicit provisions of the Fourth Geneva Convention."

Whether it's illegal wars or illegal settlements or waging genocide against the Palestinians, the Zionist War Pigs in Israel have no shame.
Their deluded belief that some deity gave them the land they are stealing from the Palestinians somehow, in their eyes, makes all of their war crimes legal.
Hitler would be proud of the Jews.

  2. Greg re the article, i have commented on another blog about it and here is what i said or along these lines anyway.
    Why has it taken this guy 40 years to realize he was correct and speak out?
    What has he been asleep for the last 40 years?
    Secondly by him stating he still believes he is right, it somehow puts their actions in a different light.
    Like as if they don't KNOW this is illegal.

  3. Maybe his conscience got to him. The occupation is illegal and Israel knows this.

    Israel is a rogue nation, practicing illegal and immoral activities. This they also know.

    They don't give a damn for either the law or other people, only their own sick and twisted version of reality.

    They're taking a page out of the USA's playbook. The same one we used to steal the Native Americans land, then use bullshit excuses to practice genocide on the Native Americans till they were damn near wiped out.

    Mainstream Christian churches could help, but they won't.

    Even the pope is a fraud and complicit in the murder of the Palestinians.
    He goes to South America and tells those folks that they had been "secretly longing" for Jesus Christ.

    Except the people in South America see it differently.

    Thanks for the link. i'll check it out. Been trying to post a banner on top of this blog, but screwed around and not only lost the "Boycott Israel Goods" pic, but couldn't upload the banner i found on the "Boycott Israel" web page.

    Take care
