Israel Considering West Bank Annexations

    Go to Huffington post to read this, its titled "Israel West Bank Annexations Considered.

    "Israel is considering annexing major West Bank Seetlement blocs if the Palestinians unilaterally see world recognition of a state, an Israeli official said Tuesday - moves that would deal a grave blow to prospects for negoting a peace deal between the two sides." " Israel has refrained from taking such a diplomatically explosive step for decades. The fact that it is considering doing so reflects how seriously it is concerned by the Palestinian campaign to win international recognition of a state in the absence of peacemaking"

    "the Palestinians launched that campaign after peace talks foundered over Israeli construction in the West Bank settlements. On Tuesday, the Israeli interior Ministry said it would decide next month whether to give final approval to build 1,500 apartments in two Jewish enclaves in East Jerusalem. Israel captured both East Jerusalem and the West Bank from Jordan in 1967"

    "Any decision to formally annex West Bank territory would be a precedent setting move that could increase Israel's already considerable international isolation. The Palestinians claim all of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in addition to the Gaza Strip, for a future state" "Israel does not consider the Jewish enclaves housing 200,000 Jews there to be settlemnts, but the rest of the international community does".

    I would think that the far right Zionists pushing settlement construction would have second thoughts about such a drastic measure as this, if they fear Palestinians gaining recognition as a state in the absence of a Peace Settlement, then why don't they just stop the Settlement construction and start negotiations. The world bodies seem to in very large part, be siding with Palestinians about the settlements. (about 90% at nearly 180 votes considering settlements still illegal or similar wording) Continueing construction on occupied lands is taken as showing a lack of "good faith" efforts on the part of the Israeli's.

    What do you think ? Aren't the Israeli's shooting themselves in the foot by letting the far right Zionists push them into this? If you were the Palestinian negotiators would you trust Israel while they build on disputed territories?

    Here in the US if someone built on disputed land they would be laughed right out of the court room if the builder expected respect for his position, when ownership was in question fully to his knowledge. Not only that but if the court determined the property belongs to another person the foolish builder would be totally at the mercy of the real owner, who could lawfully claim the building. This is insane for Israel to continue down this road expecting squatters rights to save for them what they've built ! What reasonable world body would turn a blind eye to this Israeli "Shitspah" (couldn't resist spelling this wrong because it fits so well ) when all nations common property law would not allow for such building ?

    sxydrkhair saidHmm let see...


    Palestine: In 1993, PLO recognized Israel's right to exist in peace, accepted UN Security Council resolutions 242 and 338, and rejected "violence and terrorism".



    Just curious how many rockets were fired at Israel and how many suicide bombers blew up busses and killed innocent people on Israeli streets since that so-called "rejection of violence and terror".

    My 2 cents before C4 and Pouncer get in to make this into an epic, over 9000+ post count thread...

    As a very disinterested observer - this is a matter of "might makes right".

    If Israel has the military wherewithal to re-occupy the territory held at the end of the 1967 war (with the probable exception of the Sinai ceded back to Egypt), she should do so.

    It would shut down (or at least slow down) the missiles fired by Hamas terrorist from Gaza, the West Bank, and the Golan heights.

    The sad reality seems to be that the Pallies and the Israelis cannot share the same land; the most radical PLO/Hamas agitators call for evicting the Jews from the Levant, as do certain hyper-Zionists who call for pushing the Pallies into the sea.

    I say let them all slug it out and whoever wins, gets the land.

    My money would be on Israel to win, at least in the initial conquest phase.

    I am in Bethlehem and every time we made peaceful protest against occupation, Israeli soldiers start shooting at us. My American boyfriend got shot in the leg for doing nothing. So explain to us how do we Palestinians defend our self? I live very close to Israeli settlement. Sometime Israeli settlers move their perimeter fences to steal more Palestinian private lands. How that going to help us make peace with Israel?

    IanCT, thanks for your 'from the inside' insights !! I think that the greatest majority of the world and now in the last few years even Americans are realizing that the Israeli's have put the Palestinians in such a corner that there has been little they could do but call attention to their plight.

    The US all but 'blank check' support for Israel has exacerbated the problem tenfold, in large part because of official fear of AIPAC the Israeli propaganda arm in the US. This as well as their influence on media to only tell their side of the story as far as Palestinian retaliations for Israeli aggression being considered "terrorism". all the while ignoring ZIONIST actions of aggression. If one does some real deep research you will find that Israel has killed thousands to Palestinians tens.

    So fortunately these last several years the Internet has spread the truth far and wide that it actually is Israel who is the aggressors, but even more important is the Israeli government run by ZIONIST FANATICs who with such brazen "SHITZPAH" have taken their efforts to steal land and build settlements way too far. By these actions they show they are not seeking peace in "good faith and hanging thereby hanging themselves and their cause.

    The Palestinians are doing the right thing by pressuring for statehood in the absense of that 'good faith' peace efforts coming from Israel, its quite to Israel's dissadvantage for them to seek annexation of settlements, because it prooves the Palestinians point even more. I have hope that the US is now put in such a corner by the ZIONIST 'SHITZPAH" that they cannot support them and will put real pressure on Israel to cease on the settlement front and seek real peace.

    Israel continues to terrorize and oppress the Palestinian people with its powerful military force. Palestinians continue to suffer from crushing poverty and live in a prison like atmosphere. Israel is going to annex the entire West Bank against the will and wishes of the Palestinians which is an outrage. But the US will turn a blind eye to it unfortunately.

    I just noticed that advertisement was dropped and the next one that popped up was, "SUPPORT MIDDLE EAST PEACE, SUPPORT ISRAEL" sponsored by (Christians and Jews united) !!! This is also a Paradoxical Hoot !!! ISRAEL's Land Grabbing and Settlement building is a primary reason why there is no peace in the Middle East. DUH !!!!!

    Its cool that RJ gets paid for these adds, but they are put up during a time of morning (5:00 AM) when few will see them and on a forum topic where no one buys into that shit !!! LMAO !!!

    ___________________________________________________________


    Yah that's the way to do it !!! Lets support Israel as they displace Palestinians from their lands, yessireee, the world's nations should rise up and provide support for Israel by sending those they disposess off their homelands to the Muslim countries all around. Then everyone could feel real good about helping couldn't they !!!

    OH TO BE A ZIONIST WITH SUCH "SHITZPAH" AND STILL BE ABLE TO SLEEP SOUNDLY EVERY NIGHT, KNOWING THEY ARE "OH SO RIGHT" !!!


    (Maybe since reasoning doesn't work with zionists, a little satire will sink in)
