belong to a network of khadafi loyalists and been receiving financial backing from abroad. by next year knoxy we speak to. who wrote an official government report concluding it's illegal for israel to build the west bank settlements she tells us a bit more during the discussion right now. with me i have tellus a son a noted attorney and also the author of a two thousand and five israeli government sponsored report that documented the illegality of the building of outposts on the settlements thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. there has just recently been another report also government sponsored the levi report there found exactly the opposite that these outposts in fact are legal in a country of law how is it possible to have these contradictions mired poor in
8:32 am
flying on the supreme court of justice for israel decisions for their kids for forty five years old morse that that international law applies in the west there in all the good clues range and recommendations are based on these fact in my report. but the levy. committee decided that the international law doesn't apply in the west bank in all their recommendations. based on the. to my opinion you cloned. it in this report and would you agree that the west bank today in somalia is not israeli soil and if so what legal grounds does israel have for legislating laws regarding land that is not under its jurisdiction while tomorrow opinion into the opinion that was
8:33 am
written by the supreme court of justice of israel for ever and ever is. israel has no surrender in the west bank the occupation is a temporary one until a peace agreement will be achieved between. the two people the palestinian people have paid the israelis and the authority or asked me after these reduce to legislate laws in the west bank are coming from the international law from. nations and their fourth geneva convention that they give their authority to the queue for manner of the i.d.f. who. occupied the area to legislate laws to protect the palestinians and the security of the area the ministry of housing allocates millions to these outposts each year thereby giving them
8:34 am
a lifeline as long as the government's policy of funding these outposts exists how can the matter be resolved well i may some difference in my report between settlement outpost because. of the government of israel of the settlement enterprise. i'm not sure that the international community or international law thinks the same on this topic but there's no question that. there is no question according to my report and to this supreme court of justice decisions that the outposts which are a beginning of settlements in the west bank are legal according to their internal law that applies here also to the. government of
8:35 am
israel in the united states in response to the level of port said that it opposed settlement building now washington has made similar statements in the past but what action has the united states taken in order to force israel to stop breaking international law when i was commissioned to do this to do this to poor i think it was on behalf of the prime minister of israel to show the americans the years trying to for all the law and he is trying to implement the law in the area. where we're talking about the bill if any l.b. america in the round the to freeze the settlements for ten months. as much as i know this is what the americans did maybe they could do more maybe they could i don't know isn't an attorney now who's continued support of the settlements and that not pose a threat to the definition of israel as
8:36 am
a democracy definitely yes i believe their interest after the staple foods row is to remove large parts of the west bank and bring about one hundred twenty thousand turtles better to the state of israel. all the settlements that are east into the barrier maybe some more to give peace agreement with the palestinians by making swap based on sixty seven borders we have corrections of the border. i believe that this is a highly interest of the state of israel because the continuation of the completion in the west bank in danger of the staple food fail if there are many of the jewish people in a democratic state its will is in grave breach of international law especially on
8:37 am
the issue of our posts in your opinion why has the united nations not yet sanctioned israel i can't give you an answer for your question i don't know. what going to happen by the united nations but to. believe that this issue needs to be solved by an agreement between the two people i don't believe that sanctions will. will solve the problem. thurso need for the state of israel prime minister for israel government to food and the palestinians to get to the table and start discussing without any. terms and conditions in the act by water solomon the israeli protester who set himself on fire and later died from his wounds during the recent social protests is an act that until now has largely been associated with
8:38 am
non-democratic countries is not an indicator that the social protests and as well are more than just social this is an interesting question i believe in the israeli the mocker see after all i think we are still a democracy. and we have to defend our democracy democracy is not something you know that is written in a paper and that if you were always to fight for it the. specific to the case of this very sad issue that you asked me about i don't believe that he chose that israel or the social protest are being. quite extinct i don't think so. the demonstrations last. week partly has. less than a million votes many people think they're going for any violence and you have to
8:39 am
look and you could see a balance of d.v.d. and there are many democratic states in the world so i don't think that this issue could teach you that israel is non-democratic state and one of the issues of the social protests is public housing couldn't the money that is being used to fund illegal settlements hope was all decision of course. i agree with you one hundred percent. israel should. waste it's money in the west bank anyhow even me for every person every soul in the israel had a house without any. real connection to the seashore but of course when we have such a big property housing. for poor people then we could make use of this money to make you feel very very very insidious or
8:40 am
what impact will israel's uncertain economic problems have on financing the outposts i really don't know but what i'm seeing is that we're talking about problems they konami problems in israel severe economic problems in israel but when the government is talking about the west bank their program they cannot have problems vanished because if they want to remove thirty people in. that area which is from land somewhere else because the supreme court of justice or for israel ordered it then the government has a lot of money to bring them there or to build new houses or to build a new. settlement instead of me grown. thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. most welcome. you
