The Law Sometimes is the King with No Clothes

This is the Ulpana neighborhood in the community of Beit El slated for destruction on July 1st. Israel’s high court keeps on ruling against Israel’s right to settle, build homes and community structures in Judea and Samaria. To deal with this absurd situation the Israeli government just set up a special ministerial committee to deal with these issues so there will no longer be legal obstacles to land issues in Judea and Samaria.

Please understand that this situation is 100% absurd. The land in Judea and Samaria was given to the world as part of the Jewish Mandate for Palestine, also ratified as such by the League of Nations in 1922 (based on the resolution of the San Remo Conference of 1920). It is also the historic homeland of the Jewish people as described in detail in the Bible.

To understand the absurdity of this situation today in Israel and also understand how it is that sometimes lawmakers and legal institutions abuse the legal system and “laws” in order to impose their own agendas, read this formulation by Yisrael Medad, a seasoned Israeli professional, being sent to Ministers in the Israeli government:

“Whereas the regime in TransJordan, known currently as the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, whose territory was to be part of the Mandate for Palestine, a Mandate whose territory the League of Nations decided was to become reconstituted as the the Jewish national home, which illegally occupied the area of Judea and Samaria in 1948 and then, in April 1950, annexed said territory, an act never recognized nor considered as legal, except by Great Britain;

and Whereas the rulers of said Kingdom distributed as gifts and bribes for purposes of currying political and personal favor lands that were state and waste lands to private persons without receiving any recompense in the form of direct payments or taxes;

and Whereas in the case whereby those lands were never ploughed, planted, or developed, or built upon or any other instance of tangible ownership by those so granted by the Hashemite rulers and were later plough, planted, or developed or built upon by persons now resident and, due to their Jewishness could not own such land as a result of Jordanian land;

that this Committee instruct state officials to review all such instances, collect all registery details and then declare such transactions of property as null and void and thus cause them revert to their original status as state and waste lands to be used for close settlement of Jews as directed by the Mandate decision in Article 6.”
