By Eli E. Hertz.. Resolution 242 was adopted after the 1967 Six-Day War, when Israel was attacked by, and captured territory from, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. However, the resolution never mentions Jerusalem, nor does U.N. Resolution 242 call for a full withdrawal from territory captured but merely a withdrawal to “secure and recognized boundaries” that are to be negotiated by the parties concerned. Palestinian Arabs were not a party to the resolution. Arthur Goldberg, the former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. (in 1967) who helped draft the resolution, testified in regard to the omission of Jerusalem from Resolution 242:

“I never described Jerusalem as occupied territory. Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem and this omission was deliberate.” Read the full story here.
