This is terrible news, but it figures, with Trump so cozy with Netanyahu. :shrug:

Not to worry, though. If Trump can be believed, his son-in-law will sort it all out. :wink:

Arabs live in the West Bank. Jews live in the West Bank. What is the compelling reason why Arabs should be able to have homes there and Jews should not? Is there some really good reason why the West Bank should be “Jew free”?

Israel desires to make it Arab-free. They have accelerated the demolition of Palestinian homes as they ramp up construction of homes for Jewish settlers.

It’s against international law… but Israel “answers to a higher authority,” right? :frowning:


#5

This"lifting of restrictions" means the eviction/expulsion of Palestinians from the East Jerusalem homes they have had for generations.
