"Deemed illegal under international law"

That's how Reuters correspondent Allyn Fisher-Ilan refers to Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria (the "West Bank").  As resolved within the authoritative and never abrogated Mandate for Palestine, adopted by the League of Nations and grandfathered across to the United Nations, Fisher-Ilan's unsupported assertion is false:
The Administration of Palestine, while ensuring that the rights and position of other sections of the population are not prejudiced, shall facilitate Jewish immigration under suitable conditions and shall encourage, in co-operation with the Jewish agency referred to in Article 4, close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.
To Palestinian parrot and propagandist, Allyn Fisher-Ilan, who provides no evidence for her assertion that Jewish settlements are illegal under international law, we say, with all due respect, put up or shut up.
