    5. Self-defence should be used against “all perpetrators” of terrorism “whomever” they are.
    6. The ICJ suggests: Israelis have to face deadly acts of violence, and lack the right for self-defence.
  8. 6. Terrorism
    1. The ICJ ignores relevant bilateral treaties, including the Oslo Accords.

    7. The ICJ charges that Jewish settlements in the West Bank are populated by settlers ‘deported by force.’

    11. Where Jews are and are not permitted to settle.
    12. The Oslo Accords and the Gaza-Jericho agreements recognize Israel legal presence in the “Territories.”
    13. The ICJ’s narrative of how the Territories came into the possession of Israel is void of any context and sanitized of any trace of past and present Arab aggression.
