Palestinians have always had just 3 wishes: a capital someday in Jerusalem, a return to the 1967 borders, and the Right of Return. Between Trump and Israel, there’s nothing left to even dream of: the barest minimum is disappearing – food, medicine, the title of “refugee.”
Jaw-dropping declaration: Knesset can make laws everywhere in the world, violate sovereignty of foreign states
Palestinian rights groups and local governments have challenged an Israeli law that seeks to the annex of parts of the West Bank. The Israeli government responded to the petition, stating that “the Knesset [is permitted] to legislate laws everywhere in the world” and that it is authorized “to violate the sovereignty of foreign countries via legislation that would be applied to events occurring in their territories.”
Israeli water policy is diabolical: the water table beneath the West Bank is being siphoned off by Israel and rationed to Palestinian farmers, sold at exorbitant prices; Israeli soldiers destroy water pipes and greenhouses; Israel walls off the Jordan River itself from Palestinian use; and water is piped away from refugee camps into illegal settlements.
Amid all this injustice, Palestinians carry on with patience and dignity. To exist is to resist.
Assault on Palestinian Bedouins continues: Israeli troops demolished a kindergarten and a women’s center in Jabal al-Baba. The village is home to about 320 individuals.
Instead of gradually transferring power to the PA as required by the Oslo Accords, Israel is handing it to settlers, says former US State Department official Frank Lowenstein.
Israel’s new Nation-State Law gives Jews exclusive right to self-determination; names Jerusalem as united capital; prioritizes ingathering of exiles and Jewish-only communities.
Israel has stolen 80 acres of Palestinian land for a settler-only road. As this practice is repeated again and again, the 2-state solution is becoming unviable.
Israel’s obsession with village of Khan al Ahmar is rooted in Israeli expansionism, carried out through discriminatory law. The Bedouin are in the way. It’s that simple.
Gaza and Khan al Ahmar have made the news recently. But nothing newsworthy from the West Bank. What does a typical week look like there? Here’s a glimpse.
Khan al Ahmar is just the latest example of dispossession & demolition by Israel. Racist laws enable “legal” expulsion of Palestinians from any land the Zionist project needs.
The ‘ultimate deal’ that Jared Kushner is proposing for Palestine would strip the people of all their dignity
Jared Kushner is ignorant, or apathetic about Middle East peace. After 70 years of resistance, Palestinians have no intention of selling out to “the ultimate deal.”
In Hebron, arguably the most systemically discriminatory city in the region, Israeli forces have taken to the humiliating practice of strip-searching Palestinians.
The Settlement Law is under scrutiny in the Supreme Court, accused of “breach[ing] an international convention on Apartheid”. If it stands, it may put Israel on track to annex the West Bank.
Israel’s illegal settlements built on Palestinian land will be able to grow and thrive more than ever in 2019, thanks to budget increases. This will serve to entrench the occupation even further.
Three former Israeli prime ministers, a winner of the Israel prize, two former heads of the Israeli internal security service Shin Bet, and one of Israel’s principal newspapers have warned that the Jewish state is becoming, or already is, an apartheid state…
The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) condemns Israeli plans to build around 4,000 housing units in illegal settlements throughout the occupied West Bank.
