Did you know that the previous President of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Professor, Judge Schwebel wrote:
"As between Israel, acting defensively in 1948 and 1967, on the one hand, and her Arab neighbors, acting aggressively in 1948 and 1967, on the other, Israel has better title in the territory of what was Palestine, including the whole of Jerusalem." [italics by EH]
Did you know that Arthur Goldberg, the former U.S. Ambassador to the UN (in 1967) who helped draft resolution 242, testified in regard to the omission of Jerusalem from Resolution 242:
"I never described Jerusalem as occupied territory. Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem and this omission was deliberate." [italics by EH]
Did you know that if UN Resolution 181 was valid today (which it is not), then so is the provision in Part III-D of the Resolution that stipulates that after 10 years, the city's international status could be subject to a referendum of all Jerusalemites regarding a change in the status of the city - a decision that today, as in the past, would have been made by the city's decisive Jewish majority.
