Building Eretz Israel ...

Statement by UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator Hastings on eviction orders of the Residents of Masafer Yatta in the Occupied West Bank


Translation:
"Israel has invested, is investing and will invest quite a bit of energy in 'interfering' with the Palestinians wherever it covets their land between the sea and the river, in order to be paid. The excuses change from time to time, from place to place, but the ideology remains."

Jordan warns Israel against eviction of Palestinians in Hebron | MEMO - May 7, 2022 |

Jordan authorities issued Friday warning against Israeli plan to evict 1,300 Palestinians living in eight villages in the South Hebron Hills, a statement reported by the official Petra news agency said.

The statement, which was issued by Jordanian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Haitham abu al Foul, also warned against Israeli plans to approve the construction of 4,988 illegal settlement units in other areas of the occupied West Bank.
"The settlement expansion is a flagrant breach of international law and resolutions," the statement said.

"Abu al Foul stressed that the Israeli settlement policy whether in establishing or expanding settlements, seizing lands or forcibly displacing Palestinians, is an illegal policy which is rejected and condemned," the statement added.

This statement came as Palestinian residents of Masafer Yatta in South Hebron Hills vowed to stay despite Israel's High Court ruling late Wednesday night that the Israeli army could evict them of their eight villages.

The lives of thousands of Palestinians in the southern West Bank have been on hold for more than four decades, ever since the land they cultivated and lived on was declared a military firing and training zone by Israel.

Declaring a certain land as a military firing and training zone by Israel is an introduction to displacing its Palestinian residents in order to be replaced by illegal Israeli settlers.

Wopke will you speak out about women's rights and their bodies in Red States of America. #NotOurValues

The Netherlands is speaking in a void about Afghanistan after two decades of war. The US is a close ally and should share Europe's Social-Democratic values ... the Enlightenment and Equal Rights. #StopMisogyny

Al-Nakba: The Palestinian exodus of 1948 to the present | Al Jazeera - May 2017 |

Every year on May 15, Palestinians around the world, numbering about 12.4 million, mark the Nakba, or "catastrophe", referring to the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and the near-total destruction of Palestinian society in 1948.

The Palestinian experience of dispossession and loss of a homeland is 69 years old this year.

On that day, the State of Israel came into being. The creation of Israel was a violent process that entailed the forced expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homeland to establish a Jewish-majority state, as per the aspirations of the Zionist movement.

Between 1947 and 1949, at least 750,000 Palestinians from a 1.9 million population were made refugees beyond the borders of the state. Zionist forces had taken more than 78 percent of historic Palestine, ethnically cleansed and destroyed about 530 villages and cities, and killed about 15,000 Palestinians in a series of mass atrocities, including more than 70 massacres.

...
Israel continues to oppress and dispossess Palestinians to this day, albeit in a less explicit way than that during the Nakba.

Trump's People Pocket Saudi Billions. What About Top Israeli Officials?

The matter raised a big question for Etyan Avriel who asked: Does the deal have an `Israeli' angle - and could former Mossad head Yossi Cohen be involved?

Channel 12 television revealed that Cohen, while still chief of Mossad, helped his daughter Achinoam get a job as a director in a company controlled by Tahnoun bin Zayed, the UAE national security adviser, a counterpart to the head of Mossad in that country. One of bin Zayed's companies has opened an office in Herzliya for the company employing Cohen's daughter, but Cohen denies any improper ties.

"Kushner, Mnuchin, Friedman and Cohen may have made `peace' between `Israel' and several Arab states, but they also leveraged the `peace' into millions of dollars for each one of them personally, and in very short order," the author concluded.

As Mossad chief, Yossi Cohen got his daughter a job with a UAE firm - report | TOI - Dec 6, 2021 |

Former Mossad chief Yossi Cohen helped secure his daughter a job at a firm with links to a senior Emirati official while still serving as head of the spy agency, Israeli television reported.

According to Channel 12 news, Achinoam Cohen Ganonyan began working for Group 42 earlier this year before her father's term as Mossad chief ended.

Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE's national security adviser and a member of the royal family, is the chairman of Group 42.

The website of the Abu-Dhabi based firm, also known as G42, says it specializes in artificial intelligence and cloud computing.

In July, G42 signed an agreement with Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries to cooperate on researching and developing technology to help battle COVID-19.
