Hever: The Israeli government is hiding the true cost of the occupation even from itself

As the US-mediated peace talks threaten to collapse, Israel ramps up its occupation of the Palestinian Territories. The Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported last Friday that at least 11 locations within settlement colonies in the West Bank are escalating construction in order to alter “facts on the ground.” Last weekend, the joint Israeli-Palestinian organization, Alternative Information Center, organized a conference on the economy of the Israeli occupation in Bethlehem. The Real News’ Lia Tarachansky attended and spoke to the AIC’s Shir Hever about the real costs of maintaining Israel’s occupation.

  6. It would seem that there are two opposing viewpoints here. The US foreign policy viewpoint which supports Israel’s illoegal actions, and the viewpoint of people within Israel who realize what the government of Israel is allowing to happen is wrong. An co-ordinated internaitonal sanction movement against Israel (and not Iran) would be very effective in possibly finally resolving the problem that is largely a creation of Israel.
