Palestinian Demand to Uproot Jews in West Bank Is Unprecedented in History – Dror Eydar
Is the demand to evict Jews from Judea and Samaria within the framework of a peace deal justified, or ethnic cleansing? In the early 1970s, Judge Stephen Schwebel, who would later serve as president of the International Court of Justice at The Hague, argued that Israel was within its rights to hold onto the territory it had seized during the Six-Day War in 1967.
His argument was based on the assessment that the war was a matter of self-defense for Israel. Schwebel said that because the original danger had not dissipated, from Israel’s perspective, holding the land was justified, valid, and that any change was dependent on resolving the conflict through peaceful avenues.
By its very definition, the law is a set of rules applied objectively and consistently to similar situations. If the law is applied selectively – as is the case only in regard to Israeli settlement – then it is not a law but rather the expression of an opinion under the guise of legal pretexts.
