90 Years On
Legal Aspects of Jewish Rights in The Mandate for Palestine
Author: Roy Thurley
Product code: BT93
The first in the Israel in Context series, former CFI-UK director Roy Thurley gives a presentation on the legal status of Israel pertaining to today and her right under international law, to all the land originally ceded to her in the Balfour Declaration.
In April 1920, the newly-formed League of Nations met in San Remo, Italy to decide the future of the Middle East in the aftermath of World War I. From this gathering flowed various international legal agreements, including those out of which eventually emerged the reborn nation state of Israel.
Exactly 90 years later, and in the same venue, the European Coalition for Israel held a commemorative conference. This booklet was created from the material presented at that gathering, combined with illustrative graphics provided by Eli E. Hertz and the Myths & Facts website.
