The spread of #coronavirus among Palestinians is dangerous to Israeli Jews, yet authorities and their various agencies continue to destroy clinics, demolish homes, and raid towns and neighborhoods.

The truth is that #Israel rarely behaves as an ‘Occupying Power’, but as a sovereign in a country where racial #discrimination and #apartheid are not only tolerated or acceptable but are, in fact, ‘legal’ as well.

10 humanitarian, development, and religious organizations that serve Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza issued a joint statement urging the Israeli government to refrain from annexation and urging the U.S. government "to use its diplomatic influence to prevent such annexation
and promote a just resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that is consistent with international law and guarantees safety for all of the region's people."

A few hours ago, the #Israeli #military #demolished farmland west of Beit Jala in the area of al #Makhrour—land belonging to the Abu Eid family, one of the original #Christian families residing in Beit Jala.
According to one of the family members, they have owned this farmland for at least one hundred and fifty years.

In 1993, part of their farmland was destroyed to build Route 60—an #Israeli road which runs north and south through the #WestBank,
connecting illegal #settlements to #Jerusalem. This is now the second time that this family’s #land and #agricultural #resources have been destroyed for the sake of a #settler road. As usual, #Palestinians are paying the price for settler-colonial conveniences.

Five nuggets mined from @POTUS #Israel-#Palestine peace plan that commentators may have missed on a quick reading: 1/6
1) Plan cites 1949 Armistice negotiations as a rationale for Triangle proposal, an #AvigdorLieberman favorite, to transfer 10 #Arab towns/villages from #Israel to #Palestine. Imagine if Palestinian negotiators cited '49 precedent to claim land currently inside #Israel? p. 13 2/6
2) Despite affirmation of the "same governance regime that exists today" for #Jerusalem holy sites -- and despite #Trump's appeal to #Jordan's king yesterday -- plan does not specifically endorse special #Hashemite role in preserving holy sites. p. 16 3/6

Trump‘s „Friedensplan“

Ich erkläre in einem kurzen Thread erst die Fakten und dann, was mit diesem sogenannten Friedensplan nicht stimmt:

1. Palästina existiert als Staat seit 1988 und wurde von 71 % der Welt anerkannt.
2
(Grenzen der Staatsgebiete sind unklar: es existiert der UN Teilungsplan und die 1967 Linien).

1.1 #Gaza, #WestBank und #OstJerusalem (= #Palästina)
sind von Israel besetztes Gebiet.
Besetzte Gebiete dürfen weder vom Besatzer besiedelt, noch darf die indigene Bevölkerung
3
zwangsweise umgesiedelt oder vertrieben werden.
Beides geschieht jedoch seit der Besetzung, also seit 1967.

(Deshalb hält Israel den Weltrekord an UN Resolutionen.😬)

We've analyzed this report & it is #bizarre. @HRW says it's promoting #HumanRights but it's actually whitewashing #terror (1/n)
One #bizarre @HRW argument is that #HumanRights are violated by banning membership in #Hezbollah, #Hamas, #PFLP #terror groups!

HRW refers to a Hezbollah affiliate-member as an "artist" & a PFLP leader as a human rights expert. They ignore Qatar Charity's Hamas links. (2/n)
In a #bizarre implication that #WestBank should be annexed, @HRW points to #Israel-controlled #Jerusalem as an example for "less restrictive measures." (3/n)

Just as we have been arguing all along, the #Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, what some call the #WestBank, are not illegal nor do they violate #InternationalLaw. For a territory to be deemed ‘occupied’, it needs to be seized from a rightful owner.
nyti.ms/2KAzmMi
Neither #Jordan nor the #PalestinianAuthority had any lawful title to the land when they launched the June ‘67 war against us. It was, in fact, Jordan that illegally annexed the territory in 1948, occupied it for 19 years and no one besides Jordan recognized this seizure.
Accordingly, when #IDF soldiers retook the territories in ‘67, they entered the land which no other entity had any lawful title to.
