"The Knesset affirms that the territories of Judea and Samaria are not occupied territories, either historically or from the standpoint of international law, and not according to the diplomatic accords signed by Israel . . ."
Knesset Resolution passed on July 15, 2003. Submitted by Likud Knesset Member Gideon Sa'ar.
"Each treaty stipulates something respecting the citizens of the two nations, and gives them rights. Whenever a right grows out of, or is protected by, a treaty, it is sanctioned against all the laws and judicial decisions of the states; and whoever may have this right, it is to be protected."

What is the Office for Israeli Constitutional Law?
The mission of the Office for Israeli constitutional Law is to educate the World, and if necessary to compel the World body to stand by International Law and Treaties regarding the legal borders of the Jewish National Home.
OFICL hopes that the Israeli, U.S., and European administrations will review our documentation, the relevant case law, and promptly withdraw the "Road Map" and any related facilitation, as required by international law.
However, we have gathered the evidence necessary to file a case in the United States against the U.S. government's continued violations of the Treaties that recognize Israel's rights to its internationally recognized legal borders, the prohibition against ceding any land belonging to the Jewish National Home, and supporting the right of Jewish settlement within those internationally recognized borders.
The legal borders in question comprise all Israel, including all of Judea, and Samaria (the territory erroneously referred to in the English media as the West Bank), the Gaza Strip, the entire city of Jerusalem, and more….
These borders were recognized by the United States in a 1924 treaty with Great Britain. The Jewish National rights recognized by the British and the Americans under the 1924 Anglo-American treaty are still guaranteed by the treaty. Furthermore, the U.S. Constitution calls a treaty the "Supreme Law of the Land" and the courts have the power to force the Federal Executive Branch (President, Secretary of State, etc.) to honor its Treaties.
The courts have exercised this power in the past, and OFICLmay well seek a court ruling to compel the US government to recognize the Jewish People's rights to all the territory expressed within the Balfour, San Remo, and Mandate documents.
The Office for Israeli Constitutional Law, is an Israeli amuta non-profit organization (reg. #58-035-937-0.

OFICL Founder Howard Grief
OFICL is sad to announce the passing of the
organization's founder, Howard Grief, at the
age of 73. Howard's landmark research
into Jewish rights to the Land of Israel under
international law made him a world expert
on the topic.
Howard was a Jerusalem-based attorney and notary. He was born in Montreal, Canada and made Aliyah in 1989. He was the author of The Legal Foundation and Borders of Israel under International Law. He served as the adviser on Israel under international law to Yuval Ne'eman while Ne'eman was the Minister of Energy and Infrastructure in the Yitzhak Shamir Government.
Howard is survived by his wife Ilana and two sons, Ariel and Elad.
Howard will be greatly missed by the OFICL family.
May his memory be for a blessing.
