Israel Annexation Plan Puts International Law to The Test – Is It Still Relevant? | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Israel Annexation Plan Puts International Law to The Test – Is It Still Relevant?

If Israel’s planned annexation of a further thirty percent of Palestinian territory goes ahead on July 1st or anytime thereafter then international law and a rules-based world is toast.

International law is under the microscope this week and the examination will determine whether a rules based world order is a reality or a figment of the imagination spouted for effect by various world leaders and players but amounting to no more than a fairy-tale. Do international laws actually apply in the world or are they as useful as a chocolate teapot?

Make no mistake about it, the Israeli plan which was announced in January to extend its presence in Palestine and unilaterally annexe another thirty percent of Palestinian land, including some of the most arable and productive areas necessary for Palestinian food production, is illegal. No ifs or buts or maybes. In the eyes of international law and the world such action by Israel is against the law. Arguments over the morality or justice of nation state actions across the globe will always be contentious and generate biased debate but the planned annexation actions of Israel do not enter that category. There is no debate. Under international law they are illegal.
