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.
