When did I mention Balfour? It had no legal basis without being incorporated into the Mandate.<quoted text>
It doesn't matter from the point of view of the Jewish people. They were the minority and the fact that you keep harping on about the Balfour Declaration statement means nada. The British had no right to give away a trusteeship to ANYONE it belonged to the people who were living there and had been for many years. The Jews were the minority group in the area and used force,death, destruction, intimidation and subjugation to rid the land of the indigenous people the Palestinians.TEHY ARE STILL DOING IT TODAY AS WE POST. It makes me sick to the core to think that you can support them. I have a problem with you denying what the main players in the world today including historians, lawyers etc etc have to say. They are all wrong and you and Israel are the only ones who have the true story. LMAO
It was not the British but the League of Nations who gave trusteeship to the British. This didn't give Britain the right to do as they please but they still ignored the Jewish right to settle on public lands. It was the Arabs who started the violence against the INDIGENOUS Jews of Jerusalem and Hebron. Whats your excuse for that?
Just the fact that you seem unable to observe the clearly ridiculous double standard when it comes to Israel on the world stage says it all. You don't see Jews as having the same rights as others and wonder why a Jewish state is necessary.
So Justice Stone and Eugene Rostow are nobody?? hundreds of international lawyers wrote a letter to the EU protesting its claims of illegal settlements and the EU refuse to back up their claims with legal documentation.
Please note there is a difference with Occupation whether it is in the legal or physical sense. Land may be occupied but also disputed territory.
