ADC Letter in Today’s New York Times on Disney and Jerusalem
To the Editor:
Re your Sept. 18 news article on the controversial Israeli exhibit at
Disney World: The status of East Jerusalem is not simply a matter of competing claims between Palestinians and Israelis. There is a consensus in the international community regarding the political status of East Jerusalem.
Israel conquered Arab East Jerusalem during the 1967 war. In the aftermath of that war, East Jerusalem was recognized as an area under foreign military occupation by United Nations Resolution 242, and Israel’s annexation of Arab East Jerusalem was declared null and void by the Security Council.
Any representation of Arab East Jerusalem that ignores the reality of the military occupation that the Christian and Muslim Palestinian residents of Arab East Jerusalem endure will be flawed, incomplete and misleading.
