Format: Hardcover
This excellent detailed study by Professor Howard Grief addressing both Israel's legal foundation and borders is an absolute must read. The culmination of 25 years of study addresses a plethora of issues including the San Remo peace conference & a detailed appraisal of the Palestine Mandate, including its original intent, interpretation and application.

The study pulls no punches in showing that the Balfour Declaration, Mandate and League of Nations were intent upon the rebirth of not just a Jewish national home but a Jewish state based upon a historical formula founded upon the 1st/2nd Temple period territories, including lands up to the Litani Valley in present day Lebanon. The present borders of Israel are shown to be clearly not those originally designated for the Jewish people by the aforementioned international agreements.

Detailed reference reveals how it was originally agreed between Britain & France that the borders of a Jewish Palestine would be based on the historical or Biblical formula, "from Dan to Beersheba", a phrase appearing several times in the Bible.

This shown to have been interpreted up until 1920 by Prime Minister Lloyd George & other British officials to mean that Palestine would include all the lands or regions historically associated with the Jewish People. That is all territory which at one time or other was conquered, settled & governed by the Israelites in the 1st /2nd Temple periods.

The historical formula for determining these boundaries was accepted at the San Remo Peace Conference & referred to to in the Mandate Charter, which referred to the historical connection of the Jewish People with Palestine.

Format: Hardcover
Howard Grief has written the definitive volume on Israel and its relation to the seemingly fluid thing called "International Law." He documents the division of the Middle-East after WW1 and how and why the Jews were given Palestine. The book is cleanly presented -- being divided up into five sections -- and is sourced meticulously.

No doubt some will go the usual route and resort to calling it "Zionist propaganda", but it is difficult to not be a Zionist after seeing, through this book, the massive injustice being done to the Jews and their state.

As said, the book has 5 sections: the origins of Jewish legal rights, why those rights are still valid, how they became obscured, and now, denied, the usurping of the Palestinian national identity by Arabs who had previously despised the term, and how the Arab-Israeli conflict was predicted and solved -- with legal and historical precedents -- all those decades ago. The failure of leaders, including Israel's, to follow the law is the real "obstacle to peace."

The fact is this: no one even comes close to discrediting anything written in this book. Instead, those who might try, like John Quigley, are shown to be -- with overwhelming evidence -- frauds, liars and near-antisemites. How much evidence? The book has 650 pages of it...

Howard Grief's book lays to rest, without hesitation, restraint or doubt, some of the biggest and most pervasive myths of the modern day. Myths like "Israel is illegal, there's an occupation, settlements are illegal." All discussed, all definitively disproven.

In fact, this is perhaps the book's only drawback. The evidence and content can be so overwhelming at times, forcing one to have to back a few pages and re-read before beginning to understand what Grief is getting to.

I enjoyed Grief's writings and research work; the findings and ideas are fascinating and his legal arguments shade a new light on the Mideast conflict. It is a bit long and you need to go back and re-read some portions to stay abreast of the discussion. Overall a nice book although a bit long.
