Attorneys from Israel and North America in a letter to UN Secretary General

 - The unilateral decision to establish a Palestinian State violates international law

Late last week, dozens of attorneys and experts in international law
appealed to United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon to prevent the
General Assembly resolution recognizing a Palestinian state within the 1967
borders, on the grounds that it  violates of international law and
contravenes previous United Nations resolutions.


Notable among the signatures were those of Dr. Alan Baker, former legal
advisor to the Foreign Ministry and former Ambassador to Canada; Dr. Meir
Rosenne, also former legal advisor to the Foreign Ministry, former
Ambassador to the United States and one of the principal framers of the Camp
David accords; Professor Talia Einhorn, Professor Eliav Shochetman, and
Legal Forum Attorney Yossi Fuchs who initiated the letter.


His Excellency Ban Ki-Moon,
Secretary-General of the United Nations,


1st Avenue & 44th St., New York, NY 10017

Excellency,


Re: The proposed General Assembly resolution to recognize a Palestinian
State "within 1967 borders"- an illegal action


We, the undersigned, attorneys from across the world who are involved in
general matters of international law, as well as being closely concerned
with the Israeli- Palestinian dispute, appeal to you to use your influence
and authority among the member states of the UN, with a view to preventing
the adoption of the resolution that the Palestinian delegation intends to
table at the forthcoming session of the General Assembly, to recognize a
Palestinian state "within the 1967 borders".


By all standards and criteria, such a resolution, if adopted, would be in
stark violation of all the agreements between Israel and the Palestinians,
as well as contravening UN Security Council resolutions 242(1967) and
338(1973) and those other resolutions based thereon. Our reasoning is as
follows:


1.  The legal basis for the establishment of the State of Israel was the
resolution unanimously adopted by the League of Nations in 1922, affirming
the establishment of a national home for the Jewish People in the historical
area of the Land of Israel. This included the areas of Judea and Samaria and
Jerusalem, and close Jewish settlement throughout. This was subsequently
affirmed by both houses of the US Congress.


2.   Article 80 of the UN Charter determines the continued validity of the
rights granted to all states or peoples, or already existing international
instruments (including those adopted by the League of Nations). Accordingly
the above-noted League resolution remains valid, and the 650,000  Jews
presently  resident  in  the  areas  of  Judea,  Samaria  and eastern
Jerusalem, reside there legitimately.


3.   "The  1967  borders"  do  not  exist,  and  have  never  existed.  The
1949 Armistice  Agreements  entered  into  by  Israel  and  its  Arab
neighbors, establishing the Armistice Demarcation Lines, clearly stated that
these
lines "are without prejudice to future territorial settlements or boundary
lines  or  to  claims  of  either  Party  relating  thereto".  Accordingly
they cannot be accepted or declared to be the international boundaries of a
Palestinian state.


4.   UN Security Council Resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973)called upon
the parties to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Middle East and
specifically stressed the need to negotiate in order to achieve "secure and
recognized boundaries".


5.   The Palestinian proposal, in attempting to unilaterally change the
status of the territory and determine the "1967 borders" as its recognized
borders, in addition to running squarely against resolutions 242 and 338,
would be a fundamental breach of the 1995 Israeli-Palestinian agreement on
the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, in which the parties undertook to
negotiate the issue of borders and not act to change the status of the
territories pending outcome of the permanent status negotiations.


6.   The Palestinians entered into the various agreements constituting what
is known   as   the   "Oslo   Accords"   in   the   full   knowledge   that
Israel's settlements existed in the areas, and that settlements would be one
of the issues to be negotiated in the permanent status negotiations.
Furthermore,   the   Oslo   Accords   impose   no   limitation   on
Israel's settlement activity in those areas that the Palestinians agreed
would continue  to  be  under  Israel's  jurisdiction  and  control  pending
the outcome of the Permanent Status negotiations.


7.   While the Interim Agreement was signed by Israel and the PLO, it was
witnessed by the UN together with the EU, the Russian Federation , the US,
Egypt and Norway. It is thus inconceivable that such witnesses, including
first and foremost the UN, would now give license to a measure in the UN
aimed at violating this agreement and undermining major resolutions of the
Security Council.


8.   While the UN has maintained a persistent policy of non-recognition of
Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem pending a negotiated solution, despite
Israel's historic rights to the city, it is inconceivable that the UN would
now recognize a unilaterally declared Palestinian state, the borders of
which  would  include  eastern  Jerusalem.  This  would  represent  the
ultimate in hypocrisy, double standards and discrimination, as well as an
utter disregard of the rights of Israel and the Jewish People.


9.   Such unilateral action by the Palestinians could give rise to
reciprocal initiatives   in   the   Israeli   Parliament   (Knesset)   which
could   include proposed legislation to  declare Israel's sovereignty over
extensive parts of Judea and Samaria, if and when the Palestinians carry out
their unilateral action.


Excellency,


It appears to be patently clear to all that the Palestinian exercise, aimed
at advancing their political claims, represents a cynical abuse of the UN
Organization and of the members of the General Assembly. Its aim is to by-
pass the negotiation process called-for by the Security Council.


Regrettably this abuse of the UN and its integrity, in addition to
undermining international law, has the potential to derail the Middle-East
peace process.


We trust that you will use your authority to protect the UN and its
integrity from this abuse, and act to prevent any affirmation or recognition
of this dangerous Palestinian initiative.


Sincerely,
