Israel Steals 652 Acres of West Bank Land from Palestinians

Jews? Stealing?

I don’t believe it.

Jews are known for their charity.


Israel appropriated several tracts of land abutting a major Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank on Thursday, but a source briefed on the decision told Reuters there was currently no plan for construction there.

An announcement by the Civil Administration, part of Israel’s Defence Ministry, said the tracts amounted to 2,640 dunams, or 652 acres. The Israeli source said they would now be designated part of Maale Adumim settlement, east of Jerusalem.

The West Bank is among territories captured by Israel in the 1967 Middle East war and where Palestinians, with international support, seek statehood. Most world powers deem the settlements illegal. Israel disputes that, citing historical claims to the West Bank and describing it as a security bulwark.

Basically, if Israel is planning to ethnically cleanse Gaza, they might as well just go for the West Bank too. Their PR couldn’t get any worse than it is now, and the West Bank is not fortified in the way Gaza is.

Of course, at some point, Moslems are going to do something.

That’s when shit gets real.
