How Israel engages in ‘water apartheid’

How Israel engages in ‘water apartheid’:

Jordan Valley, Occupied West Bank – Water is not scarce in the Jordan Valley, known as the traditional “breadbasket of Palestine” – yet Palestinian farmers struggle to survive, with little water to nourish their crops. They say the amount of water that Israeli authorities allocate to them has been decreasing daily since the Second Intifada.

Meanwhile, neighbouring settlements consume copious amounts of water. They grow produce, such as bananas, requiring large amounts of water, which is mostly pumped from wells in the occupied West Bank, and they export a rich variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers and spices to Europe and the United States.

In the village of Ein al-Beida, barbed wire divides a field in two.

Israeli authorities approve permits for 31 settler units in West Bank city of al-Khalil:

Israeli authorities have approved permits for 31 settler units in the West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron) as the Tel Aviv regime continues to defy the international community by building more settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Israel opposed to any Palestinian reconciliation with Hamas ‘mass murderers’ – Netanyahu

Israel opposed to any Palestinian reconciliation with Hamas ‘mass murderers’ – Netanyahu:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lashed out against the reconciliation deal reached between rival Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah, claiming that peace between Israelis and Palestinians will now be “much harder to achieve.”

“There is nothing we want more than peace with all our neighbors, but reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas makes this peace much more difficult to achieve,” Netanyahu said in a statement published on his official Hebrew and English Facebook accounts.

Palestine’s civil discord started in 2007 when Hamas won the elections and obtained power in Gaza while the West Bank territories fell under Fatah’s control. Since then, all attempts to reconcile the two groups and form a Palestinian power-sharing government have stalled.

Israel Is The Problem

Israel Is The Problem:

By Biblicism Institute

Israel is driving the world to catastrophe, not only because of the racist ideology on which it was founded, but also because its government, along with its supporters (also known as Jewish neocons and the Israeli Lobby AIPAC), will stop at nothing – including war and terrorism – to prop up a country of impostors, who falsely claim to be Hebrews or God’s Chosen People.

THE FALLACY

“Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.” Menahem Begin, 6th Prime Minister of Israel’s speech to the Knesset (24 June 1982) – Quoted in “Begin and the Beasts” Amnon Kapeliouk, in The New Statesman (25 June 1982)

What the impostor, criminal Menahem Begin purposely failed to reveal to the world was that converted Ashkenazic, Sephardic, Samaritan, European, and African Jews are NOT the Judahite Hebrews of the Bible, and therefore NOT the chosen people with whom God had the Old Covenant – all Hebrews are irrevocably dead.

State Dept: Israeli Settlements, Lack of Hope Drive Palestinian Violence

State Dept: Israeli Settlements, Lack of Hope Drive Palestinian Violence:

The US State Department’s annual terror report offers a surprising amount of criticism of Israel, uncharacteristic for the Trump Administration, which has made a point of being outspokenly favorable toward the Israeli government from day one.

The report detailed several lone-offender attacks by Palestinians against Israelis, as it does every year. But the report went a lot further, saying that Israeli government policy toward the Palestinians was in no small part driving the violence.

Stephen Lendman: Palestine Burns While Trump Lauds Zionist Extremism

Palestine Burns While Trump Lauds Zionist Extremism:

Palestine is a virtual open-air prison, besieged Gaza worst of all, Trump oblivious and uncaring about deplorable conditions. More on this below.

Together with Netanyahu in Jerusalem, he “reaffirmed the unbreakable bond of friendship between Israel and the United States…built on our shared love of freedom, our shared belief in human dignity, and our shared hope for…Israel to have peace.”

Fact: America and Israel deplore peace and stability, partnering in endless wars, seeking unchallenged dominance, wanting the Middle East map redrawn to their advantage, eliminating Syrian and Iranian sovereign independence, keeping Palestinians subjugated under occupation harshness.

Stephen Lendman: Israeli Occupation Viciousness: A Personal Story

Israeli Occupation Viciousness: A Personal Story:

By Stephen Lendman

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) explained the anguish of one of countless Palestinian victims.

Mohammad Allain is a lawyer, an East Jerusalem resident. He deals exclusively with Israeli house demolition issues. He’s now dealing with his own, victimized by Israeli collective punishment.

Recounting his story, he said “I am now talking as a father and not as a lawyer.” In October 2015, Israeli soldiers killed his son, Bahaa, claiming he attacked their ranks – the usual fabricated pretext to justify cold-blooded murder.
