Israel is the legal occupant of the West Bank, says the Court of Appeal of Versailles

Much thanks to Jean-Patrick for reporting on this monumental but ignored court ruling. Also see San Remo mandate: Israel’s Magna Carta (and here).

Israel is the legal occupant of the West Bank, says the Court of Appeal of Versailles, France

Publie par Jean-Patrick Grumberg, Le 12 Janvier 2017

In a historical trial carefully « forgotten » by the media, the 3rd Chamber of the Court of Appeal of Versailles declares that Israel is the legal occupier of the West Bank*. 

When I first learned that the Court of Appeal of Versailles ruled that West bank settlements and occupation of Judea Samaria by Israel is unequivocally legal under international law, in a suit brought by the Palestinian Authority against Jerusalem’s light rail built by French companies Alstom and Veolia, that received no media coverage, I decided to put to work my years of Law Studies in France, and I meticulously analyzed the Court ruling.

To my astonishment, pro-Israeli media did not cover it either. The few who mentioned the case did not have any legal background in French law to understand the mega-importance of the ruling, and, as a few lefty English speaking Israeli websites reported it, they thought that it was a decision strictly pertinent to the Jerusalem light rail. It’s not.
