Video: Israel's borders in international lawHere's a video of a talk by Professor Eugene Kontorovich of Northwestern University about the international law issues related to Israel's borders.
This is a little bit long (about 46 minutes), but well worth your time.
Let's go to the videotape. I'll have a final comment after the tape.
I am in touch with Professor Kontorovich (I got this video from him and not from a Google search), so if any of you have questions or would like Professor Kontorovich to come speak on your campus or at your synagogue, please drop me a note at email@example.com and I will be happy to pass it on to him.
UPDATE TUESDAY 10:59 AM
I have contacted Professor Kontorovich regarding one of the comments below, and he responded as follows:
The mandate specifically says that that Palestine shall be "a Jewish national home." That will be achieved by allowing Jewish immigration (which the British did not do). While all residents can become citizens, the Mandate only speaks of a "Jewish national home."
The Partition Plan has no legal effect, it is a GA resolution.
Israel had no definite "borders" when it was born, aside from the Mandate. The armistice lines were not borders by their very definition.
