According to the ICJ *unambiguously*, "All of the West Bank, all of Gaza, and all of East Jerusalem are occupied Palestinian territory... And each and every one of those settlements is illegal, a flagrant violation of international law... The Israeli have..to leave all the territory they conquered in June 1967." (d'accord) (seems there isn't many who (dare) enunciate this)

""" That these [settler colonialist] actions are criminal has not been in doubt in Israel since late 1967, when Israel's leading legal authority, international jurist Theodor Meron, advised the government that its plans to initiate settlements in the occupied territories violated the Fourth Geneva Convention, a core principle of international humanitarian law, established in 1949 to criminalize the horrors of the NAZI regime.
Meron's conclusion was endorsed by Justice Minister Ya'akov Shimson Shapira, and shortly after by Defense Minister Moshe Dayan,...
Dayan... "Settling Israelis in occupied territory contravenes, as is known, international conventions but there is nothing new in that."...
The criminality has been underscored by repeated UNSC resolutions and more recently by the International Court of Justice...
Israel's actions also violate UNSC resolutions concerning Jerusalem. """

" We'll make a pastrami sandwich of them. We'll insert a strip of jewish settlement in between the Palestinians, and then another strip.., right across the West Bank, so that in 25 years..neither the UN, nor the US, nobody will be able to tear it apart.
