"Jerusalem bill": Inritus Irritus

"Jerusalem bill": Should this bill be enacted, it would run against international law, and is therefore null and void. Israel, the Occupying Power, is under an international obligation not to adopt any kind of measures aimed at changing the legal status of East Jerusalem. East Jerusalem is and will remain an integral part of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (oPt).

In 1980, Israel enacted "Jerusalem Basic Law" declaring Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel. In response, the Security Council adopted Resolution 478 deciding that this Law had violated international law and declared it null and void.
