Comment on ‘Arabs, not Jews, founded and built Jerusalem’ by Eion Isaac https://www.jwire.com.au/arabs-not-jews-founded-and-built-jerusalem/#comment-512835 Wed, 01 Jul 2020 07:42:31 +0000 https://www.jwire.com.au/?p=114151#comment-512835 An interesting view .
Many believe the Jebusites became Jewish after King David conquered as they related to Malechai Zedek a righteous king basically a follower of Noah .
The problem for me the Palestinians is that the Leader of Jerusalem’s Arab in the modern era was the Nazi El Husayni who met Hitler and Himmler and approved of the Holocaust .
This disqualifies completely any Security Control over Jerusalem for the Palestinians .

“Is it because they perceive Israel to be too weak to assert its rights?”
Hardly Leon, it’s the staying power that gets them……if they don’t know that by now they never will.

Comment on Netanyahu: Applying Israeli law in Judea and Samaria will advance peace by Eion Isaac https://www.jwire.com.au/netanyahu-applying-israeli-law-in-judea-and-samaria-will-advance-peace/#comment-512595 Tue, 30 Jun 2020 02:42:53 +0000 https://www.jwire.com.au/?p=114118#comment-512595 The Realism is that the plan is a land swap not of 500 sq km as in 2000 but 1650 square km with the overcrowded Gaza Strip getting an offer for more land to settle in from the Negev of Israel.
They tried for a Gaza Continuity in Sinai but there was not a consensus .
And there is not consensus now .
Netanyahu is arguing theoretically .

Israel’s rights are iron-clad, but the very same “international community” that recognised those rights formerly under its own secular rules, now flouts those very same rules by its threats of sanctions and boycotts.
Is it because they perceive Israel to be too weak to assert its rights?
Boris Johnson, whose countrymen formerly were in the vanguard of the restoration of the Jews in Israel now has the unbridled temerity to talk about “illegal”!

South of Armenia was a Kurdistan (Article 62) The region of Izmir north to European Istanbul would be Greek (Article 27). However, the Treaty of Lausanne superseded the Treaty of Sevres.

Does the author of this article suggest a legal mechanism for the restoration of the Treaty of Sevres?

Yerevan, Armenia
