Israel has demolished 500+ Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank so far this year, says the UN. They were destroyed for not having Israeli permits, which are "nearly impossible" for Palestinians to get. Such demolitions have displaced over 10,000 Palestinians since 2009.
Trump supported annexation of the West Bank, moving the U.S. Embassy to Jeruslaem, and defunding UNRWA, while @JoeBiden has opposed annexation, promised to restore funding, and resume political engagement with Palestinians Here is Biden VS Trump on Palestine: 3/5
These UN experts are right to warn Israel’s plan to annex parts of the occupied west bank'>Palestinian West Bank would violate a cornerstone principle of international law. It must be meaningfully opposed. The UK should make clear annexation would lead to sanctions.
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.
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.
Thousands of Israeli and Palestinian women marched across the West Bank and Israel to demand peace agreement.
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.
