    Bulldozing Palestine, one village at a time

    Since 2017, the whole Bedouin village has been threatened with demolition by the Israeli authorities. Earlier that day, Israeli soldiers attacked villagers and activists who had staged a protest, injuring 35.

    When did that become Israeli state land? (not just occupied)

    So much misinformation in that article. Two examples:

    Under international humanitarian law, the deportation of an occupied, civilian population from one area to another in the country, constitutes a war crime.

    This is a, well, creative take on the specific law in question. But note that this law does NOT permit people to squat wherever they choose in the country and ignore local law because "they can't be moved".

    Israeli authorities have systematically refused to connect the village to water and electricity supplies, and have restricted their farming land

    Israel authorities have a land use management plan which provides for all the people living in the area, in particular for the safety of the squatters who are in too close proximity to the highway. Israel authorities have provided an entire village, with a half million dollar package for EACH FAMILY including privately owned land, a foundation, building materials as well as full infrastructure of electricity, water, sewers, solid waste disposal, schools, medical facilities, access to roads and complete freedom of movement. And only a kilometer away. The residents refuse to take it. (Palestinian mentality).

    A group of Palestinian, Syrian and Jordanian musicians have recorded a cover of British band The Beatles’ track “Drive my car” to celebrate Saudi Arabia’s decision to allow women to drive.

    That's all well and good except that is not Israel.

    Sure it is. Under complete Israeli control by treaty pending a negotiated settlement of borders. How's that coming along for the Arab Palestinians?

    No treaty or agreement can allow the violation of international law.
