Trump and Pompeo giving Apartheid israel the green light to annex large swathes of the West Bank carries zero legitimacy.

'Since Israel became the occupying power over East Jerusalem and the West Bank in June 1967, it has built over 240 Israeli settlements, which are home to 650,000 settlers.'
These settlements have been repeatedly condemned by the UN Security Council as a “flagrant violation” of international law.

Settlements are not and have never been a sticking point. The problem was and is the right of return.
Eniat Wilf has a new book out on it.

The U.S. is brazenly defying UNSCRs agreed to by previous US administrations which specifically outlaw the settlements, including UNSCR 2334. These settlements are replay of the British plantations in Ireland in the 17th century.

Also with a sprinkling of doomsday prophesies influencing decisions in the Trump administration...and pompeo's apocalyptic wet dreams...it becomes a reality within their own crazy and sick minds.

Let’s look to the future. If settlements, and other territory controlled by Israel, make a future Palestinian state impossible (which seems to be Israel’s aim now), then they are very much part of the problem. Isolated, powerless enclaves can never be a country.

On the other hand Israel needs secure, recognised and defensible borders.

I'm not sure that a physical border is as important as it once was. The technology of warfare has overtaken land borders. And even a terrorist has access to rocketology these days. The Israelis need an end to the Palestinian fight which is low key but still requires national service.

Every country needs that. If Israel‘s occupation permanently fractures Palestinian territory into shards, there will be nothing left to talk about. Ever. The 1.1 state solution, where Israel gets most of the land and the Palestinians get a lot less than a state, is well on its way to happening.

The U.N.’s human rights chief on Monday said that Israel’s plan to begin annexing parts of the occupied West Bank would have “disastrous” consequences for the region, issuing her dire warning as senior U.S. and Israeli officials were meeting in Jerusalem trying to finalize the move.

The warning by Michelle Bachelet, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, added to the growing chorus of international voices urging Israel not to carry out its plan. The U.N. secretary-general, the European Union and key Arab countries have all spoken out against annexation, saying it would violate international law and all but destroy any remaining hopes of establishing a viable Palestinian state alongside Israel.

“The precise consequences of annexation cannot be predicted,” Bachelet said in a statement issued by her office in Geneva. “But they are likely to be disastrous for the Palestinians, for Israel itself, and for the wider region.”

Netanyahu and the Apartheid regime need more than vague and empty threats to stop their illegal annexation, and war crimes against the Palestinian people.

Yes I did mean. A friend of mine wanted to try it out. He wasn't overly impressed.
Not surprised, so it was meant to be a Katie Hopkins photo on an Israeli Apartheid-Illegal Settlements thread.

Everyone knows Israel is an Apartheid state..now the fascist Netanyahu want's to prove it to the world by making it official.
He has a number of problems with breaking International law once again.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s annexation plan, if implemented, will demolish the very foundations of Israel’s hasbara efforts.
It undermines each and every contention of Israel’s hitherto successful propaganda campaigns.
It undercuts supporters and empowers opponents.
It takes 73 years of hasbara efforts and pours them down the drain.

Annexation is a policy of belligerence unbecoming of a country that professes to pursue peace. It’s the diplomatic equivalent of unprovoked aggression, one of the staple Israeli accusations against its neighbors. Rather than proving the wisdom and prudence Israel has always boasted of, annexation is provocative, reckless and dangerous; its ramifications could range from international condemnation to a breakdown of regional stability to an outburst of violence, bloodshed and death.


Annexation negates efforts to portray Israel as a responsible member of the free world and international community. It casts Israel as a rogue state that defies not only public opinion but international law as well. With annexation on its record, Israel will be more hard-pressed to deny the encroaching jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

She is married so she isn't stuck. And yes I'd happily ride her.

I knew you would 'ride' anything from a long way out...and I'm not alluding to your friendship with the defender of Israeli peadophiles and rapists Tuam/yanshuf on here....but could you hand over money to Katie afterwards?
