Benjamin Netanyahu: “The time has come to apply Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and to also arrange the status of all Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, those within the blocs and those not within the blocs. They will be part of the State of Israel.”
NOTICE he did not say Annexation? The definition of Annexation (Latin ad, to, and nexus, joining) is the administrative action and concept in international law relating to the forcible acquisition of one state’s territory by another state and is generally held to be an illegal act.
In order for Israel to annex the Jordan Valley and Judea and Samaria/Shomron, the territory would have to belong to another sovereignty. The San Remo resolution by the League of Nations gave sovereign title of all of Eretz Yisrael to the Jewish Community via the Mandate for Palestine.
The act of applying sovereignty is not the same as annexation as one applies sovereignty to territory that is already under one’s sovereign title by treaty law (Treaties of Sevres, Versailles and the Israeli-Jordanian Peace Treaty) …!
Surely one would not espouse that Eretz Yisrael is the sovereign territory of the “All Palestine government” which was seated in Gaza and led by Haj Amin al Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem!!!
