Welcome

You are invited to explore those parts of our new website which are now live.  The website is designed to provide a comprehensive documentary database of legal and related materials, both contemporary and historical, concerning Israel.  

Current Highlights:

  1. Abraham Accords – peace agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain
  2. International Criminal Court
       a) Amicus submissions filed with the International Criminal Court concerning the Court’s jurisdiction to investigate the “Palestine situation”.  A synopsis of pro-Israel submissions has been prepared by the International Legal Forum.  Other materials on the matter are on the ICC page.
       b) US Executive Order imposing sanctions on ICC.  For more on this see the information on the Afghan case on the ICC page.
  3. Anti-BDS laws enacted since 2015 in more than 25 states of the United States.
  4. BDS litigation – cases and documents.
  5. Iran’s threats to annihilate Israel – the legal context.

These are all of the currently live pages (those with links below), accessible here and from the menus at the top and sidebar:

Sign up to be notified when new pages go live.  It is our intention to activate more pages in the coming weeks and months.

This is the tentative outline of sections, mirroring the “Library” menus at the top and sidebar of the website. Pages which are live are linked below, as well as in the menus.  Certain sub-topic pages, such as the anti-BDS legislation in U.S. states, and the amicus briefs submitted to the ICC, are not on the menu but are accessible from the relevant higher-level page.  They can also be accessed through the sitemap.
