Inside Israeli land grabs

January 29, 2010

The Real News investigates the mechanism by which Israeli settlements come about and expand in the OPT.

Over the weekend, Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu reaffirmed the Israeli government’s support of the settlement movement by planting a tree in each one of the three biggest settlement blocks in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Despite the Israeli government’s support, funding, and approval of settlers, they are often presented in the media as in conflict with the state and the army. In this report, The Real News’ Lia Tarachansky looks at this claim through a recent lecture by Shir Hever, an economist with the Alternative Information Center. A perfect example of the methodology Hever describes can be seen in the settlement of Kedumim which lies adjacent to the Palestinian village of Kaft Qadum. The Real News spoke to the village council of the Palestinian village and the associate mayor of the settlement about how they’ve expanded and the impact this has had on their lives.

  9. The entire country was illgeally created, and violation of law continues. The international community under the UN goes into the alleged Israel and the occupied territories and enforce international law.

    Furthermore, the USA needs to stop supporting the criminal actions of Israel, and outlaw assistance to the country both by the government and through private entities.
