During a closed meeting that was inadvertently broadcast to journalists by an open microphone, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasted the European Union’s approach to Israel, which conditions high levels of trade on human rights for Palestinians, as “crazy.”
Water and freedom are commodities that Palestinians are sorely lacking. Israel is building barricades in the sea, shooting at fishermen, and denying access to fresh water.
Gaza desperately needs power for fresh water production. The EU donated a new solar energy field to do the job, but Israeli restrictions keep it from being used.
After years of threats and court battles, the West Bank Bedouin village of Khan al Ahmar is about to be demolished. Contrary to international law, as usual.
