ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the possible disengagement of Israel from the West Bank. The administration of U.S. President George W. Bush has indicated its openness to supporting the unilateral drawing of borders by the country. Sir Elihu Lauterpacht, editor of "Oppenheim's International Law," cites that no state had sovereignty over the West Bank. The legal claim of the country to the West Bank is supported by the principle of prescription in international law.
