'Occupation'? Not Necessarily
Israel has a very good case regarding its sovereignty in Judea and Samaria and should not accept its classification as “occupier,” say two participants in a conference on the subject.
Prof. Jeremy A. Rabkin of George Mason University and Prof. Avi Bell of the University of San Diego and Bar Ilan University weighed in on the matter.
Bar-Ilan University's Faculty of Law hosted the conference on “International Law and Israel,” the first in a series of annual conferences aimed at exploring the growing gap between international law as it is often applied to Israel vs. how it is understood in the rest of the world.
