International law: On our side
Regarding “Trump’s recognition of Israel’s sovereignty in the Golan” (April 1), once again Susan Hattis Rolef opens up with cannons roaring against our prime minister. If she is so fired up about international law, why does she not take the time to peruse the Mandate for Palestine, which is still legally binding and makes it clear that all of Judea and Samaria belongs to the Jewish people?
No mandatory changes to that law have ever been enacted. As for the Golan Heights, any law that proposes that implacable foes who go to war with their neighbors to destroy their state and slaughter the people have a right to land that would be suicidal for the defender to surrender, then the law (with apologies to Charles Dickens) ”is a ass.” EDMUND JONAH Rishon Lezion
