Wow, look who is relying on interantional law today!
The piece of shite that rejects it and claims israel was in the right to attack a neutral US boat in international waters if it was in their interest. What a piece of shite hypocrite.
I have repeatedly said international law means nothing when a country determines it is in the country's interest to ignore international law because there is no enforcement mechanism. That doesn't mean I do not recognize some customs and standards of behavior. And for maybe the 20th time I never said Israel was in the right for attacking the USS Liberty. I said Israel had the right to determine if it was in her national interest to attack the USS Liberty, but Israel would have to accept the consequences of that decision.
The United States could have treated the attack on the USS Liberty as a declaration of war by Israel under the same international laws that justified Israels attack on Egypt. For whatever reasons the United States did not respond to the attack on the USS Liberty by declaring war on Israel, and you refuse to accept that decision, whereas I can live with it.
Your insistence that Israel be punished for that incident has become so all-consuming that you can't hide your hatred for all things Jewish. You try and hide your hatred by couching it as anti-Zionism but you let your mask slip too often to sell that pretense. I'm sure you, David Duke and Adolph Hitler could have a deeply satisfying conversation about the perfidy of the Jews.
Now that you've acknowledged the Arabs violated international law in 1967, what does international law allow as punishment for those who start wars and lose? Loss of territory is one of the consequences, and those pesky Jews just happened to occupy some of the territory of the Arabs. That means the Israelis have the right to occupy Arab territory until they reach a peace agreement with the Arabs. The occupation itself is legal, some of the acts perpetrated in the administration of the occupation are violations of international law. Israel obviously is willing to risk the consequences. When are the Arabs going to accept that Israel has no obligation under international law to vacate the Occupied Territories?
