Israeli Court Orders Israelis to Leave Palestinian Lands

By teleSUR

13 June 18


Reuters reported that a security officer was observed comforting one of the persons the group was instructed to evict.

ome 15 illegally built Jewish settler-occupied homes will be removed from private Palestinian-owned land following a ruling by the Israeli Supreme Court.

Security forces – on the court's order – will be charged to demolish the settlement, which is located in the Occupied West Bank, over the next few days. However, the forced mini-demolition is only taking place on a legal ownership technicality since the entire Netiv Ha’avot settlement did not receive authorization from the Israeli Government.

“All settlement is illegal and must be removed. Israel is trying to fool world public opinion by removing some homes here and there while it continues to build settlements,” Wassel Abu Youssef, a Palestine Liberation Organization official, said.

Hundreds of Israeli flag-carrying pro-occupation protesters turned out to obstruct the removal of the structures in the illegal settlement in the Palestinian territory, Reuters reported, adding that a security officer was observed comforting one of the persons the group was instructed to evict. 

The Israeli Government later announced that it will compensate the families whose homes are to be destroyed and rehouse them on adjacent tracts, the ownership of which cannot be legally proven by any individual Palestinian. The remaining houses will be granted legal status and designated an Israeli Government-approved neighborhood, officials said.

Israeli settlements in the West Bank were constructed on lands that were captured in the 1967 Middle East war. A large number of the world governments view the occupation as illegal.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Sure. We'll believe it when we see it.
Not the first time Palestinians have gone to Israeli courts, gotten a declaration that yes, it's their land ... and did they get it back? Did they get paid for it? Three guesses, two don't count.

You have to give the Israeli government credit for duping the world so well. Israel needs to stop their apartheid treatment of the Palestinians and stop the killing of innocent people. Remember the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 which was the beginning of much of the terrorist actions started by Israel and supported by the U.S. government including the destruction of the Twin Towers and building 7 on 9/11.

Tokenism in a special case does not right the wrongs of taking Palestinian land for colonizing. Surely there are other parts of Israel that could be settled more thickly without stealing land.

Quoting dotlady:
Surely there are other parts of Israel that could be settled more thickly without stealing land.

No, there aren't, because there is no such place as Israel. People have the mistaken notion that Resolution 181 authorized the creation of a Jewish state. But Resolution 181 was only passed by the General Assembly, and UN Resolutions aren't valid unless they are passed by the Security Council. Since the Security Council never voted on Resolution 181, and certainly never approved it, there is no state of Israel. There is Palestine, and then there are illegal Zionist occupiers. No Israel.

Of course the burden of proof will be upon the individual Palestinian. Evidence of his and his ancestors' occupation of the land for 7 or more centuries obviously will not constitute legal proof of ownership.

There were pro-occupation protestors? Doesn't the Zionist military shoot protestors? Will those protestors be shot?

No, they don't shoot peaceful protesters, they shoot people attacking them with molotov cocktails and other lethal weapons when tear gas and rubber bullets fait to deter them.

If you really believe that, I have a marvelous bridge over the Hudson River that's for sale. I'm sure you will love it and the price is just right.

Salburger -It's not quite as you describe it. Yes, official IDF policy prohibits use of lethal force against peaceful protesters, but every year many peaceful protesters end up getting shot (and killed) anyway -- with scant legal consequences for the IDF soldier involved.
And such murdering has only been getting worse under the longtime Netanyahu regeime.

israel is so effed up that they have no way to end settlement of palestinian lands other than to bulldoze buildings into ground?

still, even to bulldoze a resettlement is a fantastic, wondrous and astounding achievement for a branch of israeli government!

note to israel - provide armed security for israeli supremes!

When I read the headline: "Israeli Court Orders Israelis to Leave Palestinian Lands" I thought wow, all of them? Nah, just one little illegal whackjob settlement. There are hundreds if not a thousand left.

This seems to imply that some governments view the occupation as legal. Do any, other than Israel itself?
