  UN Security Council Resolution 242 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
United Nations Security Council Resolution 242 (S/RES/242) was adopted unanimously by the UN Security Council on November 22, 1967 in the aftermath of the Six Day War.
The resolution is the formula proposed by the Security Council for the successful resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict, in particular, ending the state of belligerency then existing between Egypt, Jordan and Syria versus Israel.
The UN resolution, however, did serve as a basis for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations (Palestinians being represented by the PLO) that led to the Oslo Accords.

 Internal Israeli Politics
Passed by the U.N. Security Council in the wake of the June 1967 war, this binding resolution is the basis for all peace negotiations.
The subsequent American clarification of Resolution 338, which was the basis of Israel’s agreement to a cease-fire, established that the term "negotiation between the parties" means direct negotiations and that all agreements and maps that result from these direct negotiations be determined by agreement between the negotiating parties.
While UN General Assembly Resolution 194 calls for those "refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors" to be able to do so, this would implicitly necessitate that the returning refugees recognize the new political realities — the creation of the State of Israel.

And then the essential phrase which is not sufficiently recognized is that withdrawal should take place to secure and recognized boundaries, and these words were very carefully chosen: they have to be secure and they have to be recognized.
The phrasing of the Resolution was very carefully worked out, and it was a difficult and complicated exercise to get it accepted by the UN Security Council.

Resolution 242 specifically calls for termination of all claims or states of belligerency and respect for and acknowledgment of the sovereignty of every State in the area.
The Resolution also specifically endorses free passage through international waterways...The efforts of the Arab States, strongly supported by the USSR, for a condemnation of Israel as the aggressor and for its withdrawal to the June 5, 1967 lines, failed to command the requisite support..." (Columbia Journal of International Law, Vol 12 no 2, 1973).
***242 calls for the introduction of a NEW reality of 'secure and recognized borders', which indicates that the OLD reality of the 1949/1967 Lines is neither secure nor recognized.

UN Security Council Resolution 242 from November 1967 is a Chapter VI resolution which, when taken together with Resolution 338, leads to an Israeli withdrawal from territories (not all the territories) that Israel entered in the 1967 Six-Day War, by means of a negotiated settlement between Israel and its Arab neighbors.

After lengthy discussion, a final draft for a Security Council resolution was presented by the British Ambassador, Lord Caradon, on November 22, 1967.
This resolution, numbered 242, established provisions and principles which, it was hoped, would lead to a solution of the conflict.

 United Jerusalem - - J.C.P.A. -- 3/28/2002
UN Security Council Resolution 242 was painstakingly drafted by the British ambassador to the United Nations, Lord Caradon, in the fall of 1967 after the Six Day War.
Resolution 242 was adopted unanimously by the Security Council, and has since become the foundation of every Arab-Israeli peace agreement.
Unfortunately, Arab ambassadors at the UN have sought to justify terrorism as legitimate "resistance to occupation." A shift away from this formal line of argument at the UN would be a welcome change, but there are no indications that the Arab states are moving in this direction.

 (Re)visiting UN Security Council Resolution 242 :: (Countering the Israeli interpretation) :: (by Baha Abushaqra) - ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
No other resolution is ‘officially accepted’ by all contending parties (it was adopted unanimously at the council’s 1382nd meeting) and yet so contested for the interpretation of its provisions --each party seems to have a different understanding of what it stipulates.
For that reason, the United Nations Security Council determined in a historic decision, Resolution 242, that Israel was entitled to "secure and recognized boundaries" and was not expected to withdraw from all the territories that its forces had entered — and from which it was attacked — in the Six Day War.
Yet, if resolution 242 were taken as the ultimate working formula for resolving the Middle East conflict, it would be grossly 'unjust' to the Palestinians, for it means that Palestinians would be compelled to forgo some 78% of their historical homeland.

Following the June '67, Six-Day War, the situation in the Middle East was discussed by the UN General Assembly, which referred the issue to the Security Council.
The Arab States insisted that Security Council Resolution 242 called for a total withdrawal of Israeli forces from territories occupied in the Six-Day War.

 United Nations Security Council Resolution 242
The Resolution was carefully worded to require that Israel withdraw from "territories" rather than "the territories." This construction, leaving out "the," was intentional, because it was not envisioned that Israel would withdraw from all the territories, thereby returning to the vulnerable pre-war borders.
Resolution 242, which as undersecretary of state for political affairs between 1966 and 1969 I helped produce, calls on the parties to make peace and allows Israel to administer the territories it occupied in 1967 until "a just and lasting peace in the Middle East" is achieved.
It was widely recognized that the balancing of the ideas of a territorial return with "secure and recognized boundaries" for Israel would mean that Israel would not be forced to withdraw from 100% of the land captured in the June 1967 war.

And it was rooted in America's long-standing support for the security of Israel that went well beyond the various legal interpretations of UN resolutions.
This was especially true of the withdrawal clause in the resolution which called on Israeli armed forces to withdraw "from territories" and not "from all the territories" or "from the territories" as the Soviet Union had demanded.
President Johnson's insistence on protecting the territorial flexibility of Resolution 242 could be traced to his statements made on June 19, 1967, in the immediate wake of the Six-Day War.

This is incorrect — the practice in the UN is that the binding version of any resolution is the one voted upon, which is always in the language of the introducing party.
It should also be noted that (1) the resolution applies equally to Palestinian refugees from Israel, and to the similar number of Jewish refugees from Arab countries who came to Israel after 1948, and (2) that it placed repatriation, resettlement, and payment of compensation on an equal footing.
Moreover, not only does the UN admit the figures are of doubtful accuracy, there being obvious reason for families to claim more members and thereby receive more aid, the UN also admits that the total includes 1,463,064 Jordanian citizens, who cannot by any stretch be considered refugees.

Frequent references to Israel's legal obligation to withdraw to the pre-1967 borders are inconsistent with UN Security Council Resolution 242 and the Oslo Accords.

 Sharon Rewrites the Peace Script - Council on Foreign Relations
In the face of the resolution's explicit affirmation of "the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war," Sharon proposes that 242 intended to grant Israel rights to the West Bank and Gaza that are equal to the Palestinians' rights formally recognized by the United Nations in 1947.
Sharon's latest fantasy about 242 is no less absurd than was his proposition that he could get Palestinians to end their violent resistance to Israel's occupation without offering a political framework that holds out the promise of meeting minimal Palestinian national aspirations if they end the violence.

For nearly three decades, Israel used a linguistic loophole to insist that Resolution 242 called for withdrawal from "territories" occupied in 1967, but did not define the extent of that withdrawal.
The resolution begins by recalling the international principle of the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war, and others obliging the occupying power not to carry out any demographic or geographic changes in the territories it holds by force.
The US and other Western powers have led the trend calling for international intervention to implement Security Council resolutions and force countries that pose a threat to the security of any region to stop their aggressive behaviour.
