I received the news early this morning (Sivan 25/June 3) that my friend Howard Grief passed away. Howard was perhaps the world's foremost expert on Jewish rights to the Land of Israel under international law.

His book, The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel Under International Law (Mazo Publishers) is a 700-page masterpiece of twenty-five years  of research.

Howard had a passion for Israel and his dream was to use international law to secure the protection of the rights of the Jewish People to the Jewish National Home.

Howard patiently educated me to understand and communicate our inalienable rights to all our territory.

Below are the three parts of my July 2009 interview with Howard.
