Expert opinion of the Bundestag’s Scientific Service assesses policy towards Palestinians as largely contrary to international law

The annexation of part of the West Bank to Israel would be annexed under international law and would call into question the historical recognition of the State of Israel and membership in the United Nations, according to the Bundestag’s scientific service.

The report, the Telepolis is supported by international criticism of plans by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This week, the foreign ministers of Egypt, Germany, France and Jordan also warned of permanent occupation of part of the West Bank. Netanyahu had announced this step for July 1, but has so far not followed his words (Israeli annexation plans).

When implementing the Israeli plans, the Bundestag scientists assume that around 30 percent of the so-called C regions will be occupied, which are under Israeli control under the so-called Oslo II Agreement. Numerous Israeli settlements have been established there in recent years. According to international law, such a step would be clearly annexed, according to the report:

“This is understood as an unjustified acquisition of a foreign territory by a state that violates the prohibition of violence, which is concluded either by a unilateral declaration by the annexing state or a contract with a compulsory element.”

According to the International Court of Justice, the construction of a barrier in the western areas of the West Bank, which had begun in the early 2000s, had violated the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination and was de facto equivalent to annexation, the paper said.

“Just as the annexation of East Jerusalem and the de facto annexation by the barrier in the West Bank were not in conformity with international law, so the announced further annexation of the West Bank depression will ultimately remain in violation of international law for the same reasons, as long as it takes place without the consent of the Palestinian representatives People are done “, so the conclusion of the scientific service. This does not change the duration of the occupation or the recognition of annexed areas by third countries such as the USA.

In addition, the former line of demarcation or “Green Line” after the War of Independence in 1948/49 served as the basis for Israel’s recognition by the international community and Israel’s admission to the United Nations.

The scientific service once again confirms that numerous measures taken by the Israeli government against the Palestinians are contrary to international law, said Left Party MP Heike Hänsel, who had commissioned the report. Across from Telepolis she said:

“It is now important that the German government, as part of its EU Council Presidency and its presidency of the UN Security Council, clearly condemns these annexation plans and urges that Palestine be recognized as a state as quickly as possible and that the EU Association Agreement with Israel be suspended in order to prevent Israeli Plans to stop. “

The foreign ministers of Egypt, Germany, France and Jordan also warned on Tuesday of another Israeli occupation of the West Bank.

“We unanimously believe that any annexation of the Palestinian Territories occupied in 1967 would violate international law and jeopardize the foundations of the peace process,” said the Explanation. One would therefore “recognize no change in the 1967 borders that were not agreed by both parties to the conflict”
