Six years ago today William Jacobson, Clinical Professor at Cornell Law School, began his very popular blog Legal Insurrection [ http://www.legalinsurrection.com%5D. College Insurrection was added a couple of years ago.
Although legal issues remain the focus at LI, he covers many political and state-of-the nation issues and is an essential pro-Israel voice. Here he offers a video of Northwestern Law Professor Eugene Kontorovich discussing how there is no one international law, how Israel and other nations were established upon the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of WWI through the British Mandate, which wasn’t British but among a couple dozen mandates from the League of Nations and agreed upon without dissent. If you don’t accept Israel’s right to exist, then Jordan doesn’t have a right to exist or Syria and Saddam Hussein had every right to invade Kuwait and claim it as his own, not to mention the creation of numerous nations around the world and redrawn boundary lines everywhere. He also covers the lefty hysteria of Israeli apartheid. This is 45 minutes, each minute well worth your time in understanding.
