International Law or Antisemitism? - by Bat Ye'or for the Gatestone Institute - 10.03.24

In his study on this subject, David Elber demonstrates that the UN has no possession of territorial sovereignty and therefore cannot decree the allocation of a territory over which it has no sovereignty (on the basis of the universal principle of law nemo dat quod non habet -- no one can give what he does not possess), especially when this decision violates previous treaties endorsed by the UN itself. Resolution 181 only made suggestions to avoid the threat of war from the Arabs.

With the Venice Declaration, the European Economic Community demanded the creation of a Palestinian state on the territories liberated by Israel in 1967, which had been illegally occupied and rendered Judenrein [ethnically cleansed of Jews] by Arab countries since 1949. Since that time, the EEC/EU have never ceased to impose the concept of "Palestinian people" instead of Arab refugees, in order to justify its claim to a state that it has been striving to build for decades by monitoring, restricting and harassing Israelis in their own country, recognized by international treaties.

For the past 40 years, the EEC/EU, which wants to get rid of Israel at all costs, has invented a false people, the Palestinians, devoid of national particularisms and history, artificially constructed as a look-alike to Israel, even though they claim to follow the Koran, embody jihad against unbelief and adhere to Nazism.

UN Resolution 181, falsely called international law, authorizes the delegitimization of the Jewish presence in Jerusalem according to the 2,000-year-old anti-Semitic tradition, and the reduction of the Jewish state to an indefensible parcel that will soon be made to disappear. It has already created Palestinian ministries and ambassadors for a people that is not a people, but which it is determined to create in homage to the Hitler-Husseini alliance that symbolizes the jihad against Israel.

Over the last few decades, the EU's alliance with the Palestinian jihad -- a war to Islamize the planet... In its relentless fight against Israel, Europe has sacrificed its own territory and people to Palestinianism. Today, in a strange coincidence, we see the same alliances as in the 1940s: the majority of European countries, united under the government of the Third Reich, allied with Islam and at war with Russia and the Jewish people in a global anti-Semitic tsunami.

In its relentless fight against Israel, Europe has sacrificed its own territory and people to Palestinianism.

It is commonplace to hear it proclaimed everywhere and at every turn as a proven truth that the State of Israel is violating international law. Interviewed by Sonia Mabrouk on February 11, Manuel Bompard once again made this accusation, even specifying a date to a violation that dates back 70 years! This accusation, which determines all the European Union's relations with the Jewish state, justifies, for example, discriminatory practices against Israel that are unprecedented and never applied against any other state.

Thus, we can read in the Journal officiel (24/11/2016, no. 81) under the heading "Miscellaneous," regulations relating to:

"the indication of origin of goods from territories occupied by Israel since June 1967 published in the Official Journal of the European Union on November 12, 2015.

"In particular, it specifies that, under international law, the Golan Heights and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, are not part of Israel. Consequently, in order not to mislead consumers, food product labelling must accurately indicate the exact origin of the products, whether this is compulsory under Community regulations or voluntary on the part of the operator.

"In the case of products from the West Bank or Golan Heights that originate from Israeli settlements, a reference limited to 'product originating from the Golan Heights' or 'product originating from the West Bank' is not acceptable. Although these expressions effectively designate the wider area or territory from which the product originates, issuing the additional geographical information that the product originates from Israeli settlements is likely to mislead the consumer as to the true origin of the product. In such cases, it is necessary to add, in brackets, the expression 'Israeli settlement' or equivalent terms. Expressions such as "product originating from the Golan Heights (Israeli settlement)' or 'product originating from the West Bank (Israeli settlement)' can be used."

We see this text once again invoking international law without further clarification. We also note that the EU claims the right to decree of its own accord that the Golan Heights, the West Bank and East Jerusalem are not part of Israel. Is there a law allowing a group of powers to decree which provinces belong to a country and to change their historical names, such as Judea and Samaria transformed into the West Bank? Or to invent international borders where none existed before?

This text can only be seen as hateful and contemptuous of the Jewish people. Its aim is to establish in these Israeli lands a second Judenrein Palestinian state, as called for by the founder of the Arab Higher Committee, Amin al-Husseini, who united Christians and Muslims in the British Mandate of Palestine against the Palestinian Jews.

By the 1920s, al-Husseini, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, was so highly regarded in Europe that he spent the war years in Berlin. In radio recordings from this period, the German announcer can be heard describing the gathering in Berlin on November 2, 1943 of Arab nationalists mixing with the Nazis[1]:

"We are in the Luftwaffe building in Berlin, where Arab leaders are gathered to protest against the Balfour Declaration. The Hall is festooned with Arab flags and poster portraits of Arab patriots. Arabs and Moslems from every land pour into the hall. Among them are Moroccans, Palestinians, Lebanese, Yemenites, men from the Hedjaz, Indians, Iranians and Moslem representatives from all over Europe.

Among the latter are a great many Germans friendly to the Arabs, high government officials, civilian and military, one of the S.S. chiefs, representatives of foreign embassies and at their head representatives of the Japanese Embassy. The audience runs into hundreds, and here now I see the Mufti of Jerusalem making his way into the hall. He is shaking hands with a number of notables and mounts the steps to the stage to deliver his address (p. 49).

"After several anti-Jewish quotations from the Koran, Haj Amin el Husseini, head of the Higher Arab Committee (Palestinian Arab National Movement) declares:

"Moslems throughout the Arab lands are united against the enemy which faces them today in Palestine and elsewhere—namely the British. The Treaty of Versailles was a disaster for the Germans as well as for the Arabs. But the Germans know how to get rid of the Jews. That which brings us close to the Germans and sets us in their camp is that up to today, the Germans have never harmed any Moslem, and they are again fighting our common enemy (applause) who persecuted Arabs and Moslems. But most of all they have definitely solved the Jewish problem.

These ties, and especially the last, make our friendship with Germany not a provisional one, dependent on conditions, but a permanent and lasting friendship based on mutual interest (p. 49).
