George Mitchell: Since my boss has screwed everything else up,
he thought it would be wise to re-activate the ‘peace process’
Truly amazing. The TT wonders how that ever got past the Al-AP gate keepers, and whether or not it’ll stay on line without the text being changed? But in fact, the area of Judea and Samaria, also known as the West Bank, is indeed disputed territory, and not occupied territory according to the classic definition, and Israel has every right to be there. It’s due to the area not belonging to a higher contracting power before it came into the hands of the Israelis during the 67′ war.
This is something that Finnish dunce international law “experts” trip over and refuse to address, because, well, it’s just so damn embarressing to them that it’s better not to mention it all. So they remain as vague as possible about the real issues, preferring rather to talk about Geneva Conventions but never really metioning that facts surrounding the actual status of Judea and Samaria before it was captured in a war not of Israel’s choosing.
