Britain along with fourteen other European countries have again denounced Israel’s plans to advance construction plans in areas near Jerusalem, despite it being the capital of Israel and the Jewish people.

The countries and the EU expressed their “grave concerns regarding the advancement of settlement construction in Givat Hamatos and potentially in the E1 area” in a so-called démarche filed with Israel’s Foreign Ministry.

It was their second protest letter on the matter since May.

The countries claim that “Settlements are illegal under International Humanitarian Law” and that “any further settlement construction in this strategically sensitive area will have a devastating impact on a contiguous Palestinian State, as well as severely undermining the possibility of a negotiated two-state solution in line with internationally agreed parameters.”

Israel has legal authority over the entire land of Israel, including the West Bank (Judea and Samaria), thanks to international law and international treaties which are ratified and agreed upon by all of the nations involved in this.

Each one of these nations condemning Israel is a member of the United Nations and has agreed to adhere to the UN Charter. This includes Article 80, which specifically mentions Israel’s claim to the land of Israel including Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) as agreed upon in the San Remo Resolution and the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine which were adopted by the United Nations.

Let’s be very clear. International law is on the side of Israel.

Israel and the Jewish people own the land of Israel from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is actually against the UN Charter and international law for these nations to be dictating the borders of another sovereign state.

Furthermore, the EU has funded real illegal building within the Palestinian territories and they continue to fund the Palestinian Authority which pays salaries to terrorists who attack Israel. Terrorism against Israel is illegal under international law.

It is time Britain and the EU got on the right side of this conflict and stood with the Jewish people against those who are trying to wipe them out.

We call upon the UK Government to officially recognise Jerusalem is Israel's capital and move its embassy to Jerusalem.
