Legal Forum: Bring Annapolis Statement to the Knesset

The Land of Israel Legal Forum has called on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to bring the proclamations he made at the Annapolis conference on Tuesday before the Knesset.  Olmert’s speech included a declaration that he hopes for an Arab state within Israel’s 1967 borders.

According to Legal Forum expert Attorney Yossi Fuchs, any decision to change a country’s borders and territory is considered a significant change with practical implications according to international law.  Olmert promised Attorney General Menachem Mazuz that he would bring a major agreement before the Knesset, Fuchs said.
