BACKGROUND: UCI is asking you to TAKE ACTION and tell Prime Minister Netanyahu to "STAND FIRM ON SAN REMO" We have a long-standing pro-Israel partner organization also agreeing with us that, in light of the planned Palestinian Fatah/Hamas declaration of Statehood next month at the UN, Israeli lawmakers must be emboldened to enact the authority of the 1920 San Remo, Italy decision - which takes precedence in international law over any UN action!
This little known but legally binding 1920 decision which firmly established the borders in the Middle East is central to the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The internationally accepted legislation must be included in any peace settlement.
On April 25th, 1920 the Supreme Council of Allied Powers met in San Remo, Italy to decide the future boundaries of the Middle East. Although none of the overall boundaries have been altered since then, many false arguments have arisen in opposition to these firmly established precedents.
The 1920 decision of the Supreme Council of the Principal Allied Powers, Britain, France, Japan, Italy (with the US not present but in full agreement) is legally binding to this day.
In light of the looming unilateral declaration of Palestinian Statehood before the United Nations General Assembly next month in New York, the 1920 San Remo Conference must be fully taken into account. The Palestinian Authority`s end-run action at the UN is designed to avoid legal negotiations with the already sovereign State of Israel. San Remo-based International law stands firmly on the side of Israel and against any Palestinian Authority or UN declarations.
This end-run action by the PA is designed to avoid legal negotiations with the already sovereign State of Israel. San Remo-based International law stands firmly on the side of Israel and against Palestinian Authority or UN declarations.
