“Israel” is ILLEGITIMATE
This type of legal expose is what pro-Palestinian activist must focus on.
Collecting legal documents and hard evidence which would enable Palestinians to expose the ILLEGALITY and ILLEGITIMACY of ‘israel”, and PROSECUTE its war criminals and their supporters and enables world wide
I thought I would clarify the question of whether the UN “created Israel,” since most people – even many of those who are otherwise well-versed on Palestine – are misinformed on this important matter.
The fact is that UN General Assembly Resolution 181, the Partition Plan (read below), was a recommendation that was to go to the Security Council. In the resolution the General Assembly requested that the Security Council take it up. This never happened, and the partition plan has no force of law.
Israeli propagandists, however, perpetrated the myth that the UN created Israel, and this interpretation was then been repeated by numerous others. Please see an excellent article on this, “New States Are Not Created in the UN“. Below is an excerpt:
“…was it true that Israel owed its very existence to the U.N., as it became popularly perceived years later? …This same line of argument was repeated… by an Israeli analyst in the opinion section of the New York Times, who wrote that the vote on Nov. 29 was the “legal basis for the establishment of the State of Israel.”
Leading international legal scholars have vociferously rejected this claim. The noted Australian legal scholar Professor Julius Stone wrote in 1980 that Israel “does not derive its legal existence from the Partition Plan.”
Even Cambridge University’s Professor James Crawford… concluded in his monumental book on the creation of states in international law that Israel was not created on the basis of Resolution 181…”
In reality, Israel was created by a war of of conquest and ethnic cleansing, which it calls its “War of Independence.”
I hope people will read my article on this subject: “ The Real Story of How Israel Was Created. Among other things, this piece describes how Zionists bribed and threatened varous UN member nations in order to procure sufficient votes to pass the resolution. (For citations on this see my article on how the US-Israel “special relationship” was created.)
