ISRAEL AND ITS LEGAL RIGHTS TO JUDEA AND SAMARIA
On 28th and 29th June 2017, twenty-four (24) international lawyers and experts in the field of international law from twelve nations convened in the Peace Palace in The Hague at the invitation of The Hague Initiative for International Cooperation (thinc.) and the International Conference for Truth, Justice and Peace (ICTIP) to discuss the legal implications of the recently passed UNSC Resolution 2334, as well as the ICJ Advisory Opinion on the Israeli security wall. The Statement examines the legal issues surrounding the Arab-Israeli conflict and reiterates the State of Israel's territorial rights to the Land of Israel, including Judea and Samaria.
Controversial Lands: Isn't Israel's Occupation of Judea & Samaria Illegal?
A lot of wrong information has been going around regarding Israel’s so-called #Annexation of Judea and Samaria. Were here to set the record straight, talking about #LawsNotPolitics and Israel’s International Rights. We’ve created a video series, “Controversial Lands”, to answer the most burning questions on the topic from an easy-to-understand legal perspective. We aren’t here to say what’s politically right or wrong, or what Israel should or shouldn’t be doing, just #LawsNotPolitics. Please share this video so we can educate others on the topic.
In June 2020, a number of legal professionals and academics published an open letter decrying the supposed illegality of Israeli "annexation plans". The open letter made a series of misleading and downright incorrect assertions regarding international law, as well as the State of Israel's territorial rights. In response, a coalition of over 100 jurists, among them practicing lawyers and academics, signed a letter, directed to Israel's political and legal leaders, asserting Israel's territorial rights and sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. These jurists represent a diverse number of countries, positions and areas of expertise.
