Obama says he feels sorry for the Palestinians. Just which Palestinians is he talking about? The Palestinians who, in 1948, fled their homes to neighboring countries when the Arab world attacked Israel and told the Palestinians they can return after Israel is destroyed? Or the Palestinians who lived in the West Bank under Jordanian (then Transjordan) occupation and annexation when Jordan attacked Israel in 1967 and lost both the war and the West Bank to Israel? Or the Palestinians who, while living in Jordan in the 1970s, envisioned Jordan becoming their Palestinian state and started a civil war where King Hussein ultimately killed thousands of Palestinians and forcibly removed many from of his country, making them refugees? Or the Palestinians who entered the Olympic Village in Munich, Germany, and murdered 11 Israeli athletes? Or the Palestinians who infiltrated a high school in Ma'alot, Israel, took 102 students hostage, injured 50 and murdered 22? Or the Palestinians who, among others, hijacked an Air ...
The State of Israel will argue tomorrow before the High Court of Justice that it does not discriminate against Palestinians in Area C, the West Bank, with regard to planning and construction. Last June we issued a report that relates how Israel ignores the needs of the local residents of Area C, prohibiting virtually all Palestinian construction and development there. Israel retains full control of land-related matters in Area C and views the area as meant above all to serve its own needs, such as the development of settlements, military training and commercial interests.

Jordan Valley, | September 20, 2013 Israeli forces manhandle E.U. diplomats, seize West Bank aid Israeli soldiers manhandled European diplomats on Friday, September 20, 2013 and seized a truck full of tents and emergency aid they had been trying to deliver to Palestinians whose homes were demolished earlier this week. The diplomats said the Israel Defense Forces manhandled them and stopped them from bringing aid and supplies to Palestinians whose homes in the hamlet of Khirbet Makhoul were demolished on Monday. Meanwhile, the IDF said the attempt to erect the tents was a “provocation,” and that Palestinians attacked the soldiers at the scene. Khirbet Makhoul was home to about 120 people. The army razed their ramshackle houses, stables and a kindergarten on Monday after Israel’s High Court ruled that they did not have proper building permits. Despite losing their property, the inhabitants have refused to leave the land, where, they say, their families have lived for generations along with their flock ...

ON THE ONE HAND, WE HAVE THIS: In 2007, attorneys Michael Sfard and Shlomi Zecharya petitioned the High Court on behalf of the Israeli anti-settlement organization Peace Now, to implement the order. Since then, the state has changed its position several times, but in February 2011 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided that these outposts, which are LOCATED ON PRIVATELY OWNED LANDS, would be demolished. ON THE OTHER HAND WE HAVE: a government and a state *** bent on preventing any kind of peace as they continue to steal and plunder. Anyone who thinks I don't know what I am talking about, do your research. It's all out there for people who want to know what's really going on in the occupied West Bank.
