“I’m here to argue, and I’m prepared to argue this for the rest of my life, that the Jews in this city are not settlers. They’re here as of right.
The Jews that are in this city are not wrongfully here. They’re here as of right.
And I’m referring to international law.”
“I am appalled, as a lawyer and a legal rights advocate, at the lack of justice done to the Jewish people…How dare they demand that all Jews leave Old Jerusalem and the rest of Judea and Samaria?” — Dr. Jacques P. Gauthier
No. Dr. Gauthier is not Jewish. He is a Canadian scholar of international law and an authority on who has sovereign rights to Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria (the west bank).
“His doctoral thesis on the topic is one of the heaviest books most people have ever seen: 1,300 pages, with 3,200 footnotes. It details how the world community of nations granted the Jewish people irrevocable legal rights to Yerushalayim [Jerusalem] in an unbroken series and resolutions: The Balfour Declaration, the San Remo Conference of 1920, and affirmations of other world bodies such as the UN.”
Dr. Gautheir has presented his extraordinary research to many international audiences, and government officials. This particular presentation (provided below) is especially compelling, clear, even fascinating as he addresses not just the history, but many of the competing claims asserting title to the ancient city of Jerusalem, including religious ones from Christians and Muslims.
