Getting ready to defy international laws and start maliciously abusing their new legislation allowing them to confiscate Palestinian land for the sake of settlements, the Israeli government has informed the High Court they are considering new seizures around the illegal West Bank outpost of Adi Ad, reported Anti War.
The U.N says these illegal settlements are a violation of international law, so this effectively would be an act of terrorism against impoverished, unarmed civilians.
Even Fox News reported that Israel is the top human rights violator because of what they have been doing to the Palestinian people.
Anti War reported Palestinians have been suing over the Adi Ad settlement since 2014, urging the High Court to dismantle the illegally constructed outpost. Israeli officials told the court not to agree to this, insisting that some of the outpost was on land already claimed by the Israeli government.
Some, but not all, at least seven buildings in Adi Ad are built on privately-owned Palestinian land, as are a number of roads the settlers have built. This is exactly the sort of thing the Israeli far-right had always intended to use the new land seizure law for, seizing the privately owned land to give it to the settlers.
Adi Ad is a small settlement outpost, with estimates putting it at only a little over a dozen families. It is most notably known for an early 2015 incident in which Israeli settlers there attacked US diplomats. The diplomats were inspecting settler vandalism against Palestinian-owned trees near the settlement, as some of the land was owned by an American citizen.
The conditions for Palestinians continue to get worse as Israel continues to steal more and more land. Israel shows no signs of stopping its human rights violations or its flagrant disregard for international law. Please share this to help bring attention to the terrible conditions, partially funded by U.S. tax dollars, that exist there.
