His report rewrote international law. He claims occupation "as set out in the relevant international conventions cannot be considered applicable to the unique and sui generis historic and legal circumstances of Israel's presence in Judea and Samaria spanning over decades."

"Israelis have the legal right to settle in Judea and Samaria and the establishment of settlements cannot, in and of itself, be considered illegal."

He recommended legalizing illegal outposts. He said zoning officials should authorize them without further political approval. He urged no restraints on settlement construction.

Netanyahu praised his report, saying:

"In my opinion, this report is important because it deals with the legalization and the legitimization of the settlement enterprise in Judea and Samaria on the basis of facts, a variety of facts and arguments that should be seriously considered."

Dominant Likudniks support colonizing all valued parts of Judea and Samaria Israel wants. They claim Jerusalem as Israel's exclusive capital. They want Palestinians gone. They'll tolerate them only on isolated bantustans on worthless scrubland.

Levy is a former Israeli Supreme Court justice. His rulings spurned justice. He's more facist than jurist. He embarrasses legitimate juris prudence. He rejects Green Line separation of Israel and Palestine.

So do Likudniks. Netanyahu and Lieberman reflect the worst of their agenda. They're ideologically on the lunatic fringe. They're world class thugs.

Under their leadership, free expression suffered. Both sides of the Green Line are affected.

Jerusalem and Tel Aviv are Israel's two largest cities. They enacted new regulations. They make it extremely hard to demonstrate publicly. 

West Bank diktats ban all forms of protest. Activist leaders and supporters are persecuted. Repression continues against the backdrop of dual legal systems. Laws affecting Palestinians violate fundamental international laws and standards. 

Israeli security forces target them ruthlessly. Repression is official Israeli policy. It's systematically enforced. Police state harshness is severe.

Reports from East Jerusalem reveal illegal interrogation practices used on accused minors. Pre-dawn arrests target them. Children young as 10 are detained. Parental and legal contacts are denied. 

ACRI discussed statements, legislative initiatives, and policies infringing on the human rights of asylum seekers. Most face severe repression or death if deported to their home countries.

Propaganda viciousness targets them. They're called criminals, disease-ridden, demographically threatening, harmful to Israeli security, and malignant to Israeli society.
