When Jordan took most of Jerusalem in 1948 the world "conveniently" pretended to forget about the "free city" provision of the Mandate. If Jordan was still in Jerusalem, you wouldn't give a fetid dingo's kidney about the status of Jerusalem.<quoted text>
The mandate for palestine clearly says that Jerusalem will be a free city and not part of either palestine or israel.
The UN charter clearly states that taking territory by force is illegal.
You can pretend otherwise if you like.
The Mandate became a moot point 10 seconds after Jordan ran over it with tanks and not a single UN resolution since 1948 resurrects the stupid idea of a "free city".
