Under international law Israel has no right to defend itself from occupied people. Occupied people have the right to resist with any means. But then again what would I know I only worked forward a Ph.D. covering international law, teach, lecture and write in the area.

Faisal Kutty’s statement was posted in response to Paul Chato’s post on X:

Adding ‘per international law’ does not make it true. Int Law says Israel has a right to protect itself. What do you think about that? The UN has made hundreds of non-binding pronouncements. You are a propagandist. Let’s start with 1st principles. Does your peace include Israel?
