Palestine, Palestinians & International Law (Paperback) by Francis Anthony Boyle,
Haidar Abdul Shaffi "On June 22, 1987, I delivered a speech before the United Nations Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People at..."

This is a brilliant overview of the legal framework of analysing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, written for a lay audience. Boyle demonstrates that Palestine is legally a state - recognised by over 110 countries worldwide - and that since Israel has refused to recognise it, and has, in fact, trampled over its sovereign rights, it deserves to be suspended from the United Nations. Israel's entry into the UN, after all, was contingent on its adherence to UN Security Council Resolutions 181 and 194, which, fifty-seven years later, it has failed to implement. These constitute gross violations of international law, for which there must be legal consequences. Boyle effectively proves his points with a learned, yet accessible style; unfortunately, intelligent and reasoned views such as his are absent in American discourse on this topic, especially in the "paper of record", the New York Times.
