Shmuel Katz Retro

For today:

The UN, the U.S., the EU, Britain, The International Court of Justice at The Hague – these governments and entities all claim that Israel’s “settlements” are illegal. They repeat the false charge so often it has become gospel.

When this charge was in swaddling clothes, Shmuel recognized its importance and the urgent need to combat it. Over 30 years ago, in 1978, he began to write about this “monstrous charge.” The smear was started by State Department lawyers under the Carter administration. They were looking for legal ammunition to challenge Israel’s hold on the territories it captured in the 1967 war.

Read it all.
