This volume by recognized experts from Israel and abroad outlines Israel's legal case on key issues of international law. As questions are raised over the legitimacy and morality of Israel's actions, the authors in this volume see Israel's actions as firmly rooted in international law. These scholars present well-reasoned responses to the charges of "occupation," "apartheid," and "colonialism." They also discuss the legal status of Israeli settlements, the West Bank security fence, and Israel's borders.
Authors include Amb. Alan Baker, Dr. Abraham Bell, Amb. Yehuda Z. Blum, Amb. Dore Gold, Jeffrey S. Helmreich, Prof. Ruth Lapidoth, Laurence E. Rothenberg, Dr. Robbie Sabel, and Lt.-Col. (res.) Avinoam Sharon.
