On Wednesday night, Robbie Sabel, Professor of International Law at the Hebrew University Jerusalem, gave an online presentation to members and friends of B’nai B’rith UK on whether international law was relevant to the Arab-Israeli conflict. He identified a number of areas where Israel was wrongly accused of violating international law and subjected to double standards and unfair treatment by international bodies. He interspersed his talk with some illuminating illustrations from his own life as a diplomat and legal counsellor, and took some questions from the audience at the end.
