    This land is Israeli and comes under the absolute jurisdiction of the Israeli national legal system. If the Palestinian families had been legally living there, there would be no issue. Israeli citizens owned these properties legally and these homes whcih legally belong to the Israeli families have been occupied by the Palestinians for many years. The international community should celebrate the legal system of Israel which would evict Israelis from Palestinian homes, would the situation have been the other way around, but instead if this had happened the representative for Nigeria surely would condemn the Israelis for having EVER lived there, not even congratulating the legal system for returning the homes to their rightful owners.
    Israel is disappointed that Nigeria is against legal property ownership under the legal system in a civilised developed nation. Israel asks Nigeria whether he can claim the same for property in his nation?

    Your move into East Jerusalem in 1967 was not recognized by Nigeria or the international community, and thus, your point in void.
    Even your biggest supporter, the US, has condemned you surely this must mean something to you?
    The area which the houses are in is contested, this means they are not yours. Just because you think they fall under your jurisdiction, it does not give you the right to evict people from that land and also without providing anything for them.
    Of course Nigeria can, but our jurisdiction is recognized by the international community and yours is not. That is where the difference lies.

    The international community does not understand the problems in Israel, because you are not Israeli or Palestinian. this is an internal matter between our two peoples, and Nigeria nor the international community has any say in this matter. this is a legal matter for the Israeli courts to decide.

    ...how is that ironic? why are you laughing? how is this amusing to you whatsoever? because i am personally to blame for all the problems in the middle east and my being in jerusalem is the reason for this happening? yeah. right.

    on point.
    the international community does not understand the problems in israel, because you are not israeli or palestinian. this is an internal matter between our two peoples, and nigeria nor the international community has any say in this matter. this is a legal matter for the israeli courts to decide.
    The Republic of Turkey completely disagrees with this statement made by Noémie. Just because the delegate of Nigeria is not from the Middle East does not mean he can't form an opinion on the matter. Isn't that what the United Nations does, allows nations to compile opinions and reach a compromise? Your verbal attack on this delegate was uncalled for.

    The Republic of Turkey stands with Nigeria on their statements. Israel has occupied East Jerusalem since 1967 and the international community has not recognized this movement. Therefore, in the minds of the international community, Israel has no jurisdiction there. This eviction of the nine Palestinian families completely opposes Israel's supposed desire for peace. All this will achieve is a reason for extremists to detest Israelis more. Hostile activity is on its way if Israel continues to act with this authority that it shouldn't even possess. Sorry, but this is the truth. The US and UK have already condemned Israel's actions, and The Republic of Turkey now does the same.

    The Republic of Turkey would like to echo these words:
    Palestinian negotiator Saed Erakat said: "Tonight, while these new settlers from abroad will be accommodating themselves and their belongings in these Palestinian houses, 19 newly homeless children will have nowhere to sleep."

    Nigeria agrees with Turkey on this situation, if I was a Palestinian living in Jerusalem how do you think I would feel knowing that one day I may be evicted by the Israeli forces just because I am Palestinian even though East Jerusalem is not under your jurisdiction?
    For too long Israel has been allowed to do this, and we are happy that the international community, especially the US has condemned Israel for their actions

    I would like to remind all reps that all reps are merely representing their nations opinions, not their own, and point out to our Israeli rep that I am certain that our Nigerian rep meant no offense. Play nice, folks.

    The Secretary General notes that in spite of all the arguments of the disputed legality of cases such as these, it is most certainly an international matter when Israel/Palestine is an area of such great concern to international peace and security. Cases like these do not aid the path to peace and are truly "deplorable".

    Israel reminds the assembly that that land is currently Israeli and will be under Israeli jurisdiction until a two state agreement is reached. This is indisputible.

    The Republic of Turkey would like to state, however, that Israel is probably the only nation who believes it should have jurisdiction in East Jerusalem. The international community does not view this land as Israeli and claims that Israel annexed East Jerusalem in 1980. Just because you think you have authority, doesn't mean you do.

    This movement will only result in high tensions and less trust in Israel's word. Surely the act being denounced be some of Israel's greatest supporters (i.e. US) reveals that Israel are taking the wrong steps. If peace is what Israel wants, they are going about it in the completely wrong manner. Unfortunately, it is these homeless Palestinian families that will have to suffer. What are Israel's statements on that? How can Israel claim it desires peace and equality while it destroys the homes of Palestinian families and leaves them to fend for themselves?

    The Palestinian families had letters of notice posted in accordence with Israeli law and in more than enough time for them to find somewhere else to live. Their upset at being evicted is based on their unwillingness to leave their homes, which is understandable. However the law is the law and they were living in Israeli owned homes. They were essentially squatting in homes where Israelis had the title deeds and therefore owned the homes. Had this happened in any country apart from Israel, there would be no upset. It is based entirely on hatred for Israel and Israelis.

    The Republic of Turkey would like to remind Israel that other countries do not have the same controversy that is present in Israel. In other countries, there would be no upset because the government controls its own citizens and not citizens of other nations. Also, the delegate of Israel's claims that this upset is based on hatred for Israelis is completely unwarranted. Why would the US criticize Israel's actions unless they were incorrect? The US, after all, is one of Israel's biggest supporters. Please don't claim that this upset is solely due to discrimination. The evidence against this is incontrovertible.

    The US administration's recent change in policy to ignore PLO and Hamas policy and to give in to terrorist demands has manifested itself in many ways, down to criticising the Israeli legal system. Whether Turkey thinks or doesn't think tha t Israel has jurisdiction here, the plain fact is that it does. While Palestinians live in Isreal, they follow Israeli law. East Jerusalem is Israeli and therefore is subject to Israeli law, which by the way has been written in conjunction with the support of the many Arab Israelis that are enfranchised citizens in Israel.

    Kenya would like to remind Israel that in the eyes of the international community you merely occupy that territory through annexation. An annexation that under Security Council resolution 267 is illegal. Now we understand where you are coming from on this matter and we also understand the palestinian side of the argument but you have not only made palestinians homeless for no need you have also put those settlers lives at risk by continuing with this effort. The sensible act would be to pull the settlers out until a solution to the overriding problems between your two peoples can be found.

    Tonga recognises that this land is legally owned by Israeli citizens, it is the sovereignty of the land, not the freehold that is contested. That said Tonga feels very strongly that the actions of the Israeli security forces in evicting the Palestinian squatters could have been carried out with greater sensitivity and that the callous treatment of the land's occupants will add further tension to an already unstable region.
