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.
