Israel’s plan to build new homes in the occupied West Bank is Wrong!

Posted on Updated on

     I am of the strong opinion that Israel is overstepping the limits by approving tenders to establish a new settlement in the occupied West Bank. Israel recently published these tenders to build 283 new homes in a move that represents the largest land grab on the occupied Palestinian territory in three decades!
      This action by Israel has generated a lot of international condemnation.
Even the United States, one of Israel’s closest allies has criticized this move and called for Israel to reverse these plans. I also like the fact that UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon spoke up this time around, saying that he was alarmed by this move. I am equally alarmed. This action by Israel is a clear violation of international law and it shows that Israel is not ready for lasting peace with the Palestinians. The Palestinians are fighting to have a recognized State on these lands, much of which Israel is occupying and are now furthering the occupation with plans to build more Israeli settlements. This plan is very wrong and U.S and UN should not only criticize this move but should take decisive steps to prevent them.

      Thanks, Sed! I’ll definitely be expecting your 100th Post! (Congratulations)
      I read your post and I agree with you that Israel most times escape punishment for crimes that should really be punished for…and this is mainly because they have U.S as a staunch ally who ‘criticizes and condems’ but does nothing.

    Why does everyone hate, israel so much. They’re just a tiny blob surrounded by maggots trying to eradicate them. Wouldn’t you bomb the crap out of enemies who are trying to erase you from this earth? And you all know that those pond scum sucking maggot Hamas uses the innocent Pals as shields and don’t tell me none of you know that. I’m all for Israel and I hope they continue to pound those scum, Hamas and this is all coming to you from a black man. Not all blacks hate, israel. You guys all think that the Israelis are being bullies? Well why don’t you all go over there and live in israel and see what it must feel like to be hated by the world. I’m not saying they are a Gods chosen people because I don’t believe in organized religion. I do believe in a creator. Just not the way everyone else does. There are too many religions and each one thinks theirs is the right one. Bull crap. Nobody on this earth knows what happens after death or anything like that and look at all the people dying because of religion. Anyways I got off the subject there. Sorry but ill end by saying that Israel has a right to defend itself and I’ll be for them for as long as it takes. Yes I hate seeing innocent children killed but stupid, maggot Hamas is the reason. They obviously don’t care about their people since they keep on bombing Israel. I HATE, HAMAS AND ALL TERROSISTS SO VERY MUCH INCLUDING THOSE MURDERING MAGGOT, ISIS PIECES OF CRAP!! And don’t any of you go on saying that Israel’s a terrorist because they are defending themselves. Ok. That’s it. Keep on fighting, Israel. Someday but not likely, you people can live in peace from all these murdering maggots and everyone else who hates you.

      We don’t all hate Israel, dear. I don’t hate Israel. Its far beyond hating and not hating. We are only advocating that the right thing be done. Killing innocent women and children is definitely not the right thing to do. I don’t think there was any justification for bombing a UN shelter where civilians sought refuge. even U.S, Israel’s staunch ally criticized that move just as they are criticizing these move of establishing more settlements in the occupied West Bank. What I’m simply saying is that radicalism is never a good response to radicalism. Israel has the rights to protect themselves, no doubt but they should do so in the confines of international law. About Hamas not caring about its people and using people as human shields, I’ve heard of it but its something I’m not so sure of, as some people have said it was just part of an Israeli propaganda.
      I’m not in anyway justifying Hamas though because they have also committed some grievous wrongs but why many point at Israel is because that have the protection of the United States and are sometimes treated as a sacred lamb which many feel is unfair.
