DESIGNATION, AS IN “the International City of Jerusalem” is code for “We’re going to deny a nation-state the exercise of sovereignty over its territory.” As though an ad hoc group comprised of China, Venezuela, North Korea, and Iran were to declare New York “an international city” because all nations of the world have stake in it.
