BREAKING: EU high court rules that all EU member states must label goods from the Israeli settlements in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights and precisely identify them as products from an Israeli settlement. @BarakRavid )
Number of the day: 0n November 12, 1989 half a million DM “Welcome Money” was paid to East German citizens at one Deutsche Bank branch in West Berlin alone. By the end of 1989, our branches in Berlin had handed out 62m DM. #BerlinWall30
It was the second video to emerge in the past week showing the shooting of an unarmed Palestinian by Israeli forces, and the latest example of how amateur videos are changing the operating environment for soldiers in the West Bank.
Netanyahu can’t just decide to make a third of the West Bank part of Israel. It would be an illegal act, deny the Palestinian people the right to self-determination and be a dangerous threat to the chance of peace and security for both peoples.
No violence in the West Bank. No violence in Jordan. No protests in the Arab Street. Only Hamas. Only a terrorist group that urged its militants to attack Israel. Terrorists who refuse to recognize Israel’s right to exist. And this is how the NYT covers it. Shame.
I applaud for their recent decision to remove all their vacation rental listings from the occupied West Bank. These listings in illegal settlements promoted structural discrimination, theft of Palestinians' land, and direct violations of international law.
At least one Palestinian has been killed and 200+ people injured during protests across the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza. Protests are happening across the world following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
