A New Book: The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel

As Israeli politicians try to see who can divest Israel of its land first, a new book has just been published that clearly defends and
explains Israel's legal right to its land, based on international law!

Attorney Howard Grief, author of "The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel under International Law" is the originator of thesis that de jure sovereignty over the entire Land of Israel and Palestine was vested in the Jewish People as a result of the San Remo Resolution adopted at the San Remo Peace Conference in April 1920 and that it
was from that moment that the State of Israel derives its legal existence. The San Remo Peace Conference divided up the territory of the Ottoman Empire after World War One.

This book will provide the legal evidence that people today need to accurately present the facts about Israel's legal rights to its land.

One reviewer has written, "This treatise is must reading for every nationalistic Jew, so that he may be equipped to debate with, and prove our enemies and Quislings wrong when they advocate Israel's abandonment of integral parts of our motherland."

The author writes about identity theft of the name "Palestine" and offers legal solutions to population issues.

A major work, this book took the author more than seven years to complete and has just been published by Mazo Publishers of Jerusalem. This treatise on Jewish Sovereignty over the Land of Israel is fully documented and footnoted.

The late Dr. Ya'akov Meron, a former Adviser on the Law of Arab Countries at the Ministry of Justice in Jerusalem, described Grief's book as "a forceful and erudite pleading for the respecting of the letter and spirit of the law, not only Israeli law but also the international law that came into existence in the wake of World War I. This law, now largely forgotten or neglected, is still relevant
today in regard to the status and borders of the Land of Israel. The author makes a thorough analysis of the international documents which recognized the rights of the Jewish People to the land of their ancestors, most significantly the San Remo Resolution on Palestine,
agreed to by the victorious Allies at the Peace Conference of April 1920."
