Israeli Sovereignty: the San Remo Resolution

Netanyahu did not say that Israel will annex Judea and Samaria – He said Israel will apply sovereignty to the Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria.
There is a difference:

One does not annex what is already one’s territory – One applies sovereignty to territory that one is sovereign over – the San Remo Resolution gave the Jewish community sovereign title to Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) via the Mandate for Palestine….

Annex: To attach to. append or add as an extra or subordinate part.

Apply Sovereignty: Application of Law to One’s Territory.

San Remo Resolution – 25 April 1920

It was agreed –

(a) To accept the terms of the Mandates Article as given below with reference to Palestine, on the understanding that there was inserted in the procès-verbal an undertaking by the Mandatory Power that this would not involve the surrender of the rights hitherto enjoyed by the non-Jewish communities in Palestine; this undertaking not to refer to the question of the religious protectorate of France, which had been settled earlier in the previous afternoon by the undertaking given by the French Government that they recognized this protectorate as being at an end.

(b) that the terms of the Mandates Article should be as follows:

The High Contracting Parties agree that Syria and Mesopotamia shall, in accordance with the fourth paragraph of Article 22, Part I (Covenant of the League of Nations), be provisionally recognized as independent States, subject to the rendering of administrative advice and assistance by a mandatory until such time as they are able to stand alone. The boundaries of the said States will be determined, and the selection of the Mandatories made, by the Principal Allied Powers.[13]

The High Contracting Parties agree to entrust, by application of the provisions of Article 22, the administration of Palestine, within such boundaries as may be determined by the Principal Allied Powers, to a Mandatory, to be selected by the said Powers. The Mandatory will be responsible for putting into effect the declaration originally made on the 8th [2nd] November, 1917, by the British Government, and adopted by the other Allied Powers, in favour of the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

Besides, if Israel “collectively naturalizes” all Jews of the Diaspora, they will hold a solid majority over the Arabs!
