Continuously stealing land is the only thing that Israel is good at. Israel does not want “peace”, they want all the “pieces” of the land left in the hands of Palestinians!

Israel has plans to take 3,176 acres of Palestinian land around a West Bank village near central Jerusalem, according to residents of the village who were handed orders signed by the head of IDF Central Command, Ma’an News reports.

Beit Iksa residents told Ma’an that the orders, signed by the Israeli military commander in the West Bank, Nitzan Alon, were distributed Saturday morning by the soldiers. They gave residents of the village until 2017 to evacuate the land.

Ma’an also published maps of the areas to be expropriated. Continue reading ‘Israel wants to confiscate over 3,000 acres in West Bank “for military purposes”’

Israeli forces blocked the entrance of Abud village northwest of Ramallah with a large cement block on Friday in order to prevent residents from coming in or out of the village, locals said.

The move came after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at a vehicle belonging to an Israeli settler late Thursday while it was passing the main road near the village. No injuries were reported in the incident.

As a result of the closure, villagers were forced to take other ways through near villages to get in or out of the area.

Locals said that shutting the main entrance of the village was a form of “collective punishment” for the approximately four thousand villagers in Abud.

Abud is located directly beside the Israeli settlements of Ofarim and Bet Arye, which have been built on land confiscated from the village.

It has accelerated this week, when more than 100 young Palestinians were arrested over two nights. Continue reading ‘Jerusalem unrest prompts fears of third Intifada’

Wailing for war at the Western Wall

On July 24th, 2014, during Operation Protective Edge, Israelis held a prayer vigil for the well-being of their soldiers in Gaza. How young Israeli Jews view Palestinians in general: they want them to die or leave the country. These Israeli youths will serve in the military in few years and will be sent to the West Bank or Gaza.

West Bank Palestinians boycott Israeli goods

There have been repeated protests against Israel’s offensive against Gaza by people in the occupied West Bank, but some Palestinians are also expressing their dissatisfaction through new media and the boycotting of Israeli goods.
