As MK Danny Danon (Likud) participates in 90th anniversary of the San Remo Conference.
To mark the 90th anniversary of the San Remo Conference, at which the Allied powers incorporated the Balfour Declaration into international law by pledging to give the Jews a national home in Palestine, several events were held over the weekend held in the Italian resort town.
All of the events were organized by the European Coalition for Israel in conjunction with Canadian Supporters for Israel's Rights, who wrote in an introductory note for the weekend's proceedings:
"We do not believe that diplomacy should be divorced from international law," the note read. "None of the recent peace plans issued to date mentions the legal rights of Israel enshrined in international law. This seminar will take a closer look at the historical and legal realities of the Middle East, based on the proceedings of the San Remo Peace Conference in April 1920."
Under the auspices of San Remo Mayor Maurizio Zoccarato, a panel held inside the town on Saturday concerning "the legal significance of the San Remo Resolution as it relates to the status of Israel and Jerusalem under international law," included the participation of Deputy Speaker of the Knesset MK Danny Danon (Likud), Italian MP Fiamma Nirenstein and international legal expert Dr. Jacques Gauthier of Toronto.
