He spurns Palestinian rights. He accelerated lawless settlement construction. He's stealing Palestinian land faster than ever. His E1 Ma'aleh Adumin plan drew flack.
At issue is separating the West Bank from Jerusalem, Judaizing the entire city, surrounding Palestinian urban areas with encroaching Israeli settlements, and driving the last spike into the corpse of a two-state solution.
It's no longer possible with or without E1 development. Proceeding with it divides the West Bank into separate north/south areas. Doing so reflects Netanyahu's divide, conquer, steal, and ethnically cleanse strategy.
He calls Occupied Palestine "disputed territory." He believes Jews have sole "natural right and territorial claim." He spurns international law. Fourth Geneva leaves no ambiguity. Article 49 states:
"Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or to that of any other country, occupied or not, are prohibited, regardless of their motive."
Palestinians acted in their own defense. They defied occupation harshness. They erected a Bab Al Shams village tent city. They did so on their own land.
Bab Al Shams means "Gateway to the Sun." It reflects Palestinian liberation. It's the gate to their return. Lebanese novelist Elias Khoury discussed it. He related Palestinian history symbolically through a love story.
Younis left his wife, Nahila. He joined Lebanese-based Palestinian resisters. She remained in Galilee. For years, he went back and forth secretly. Their children were born in Bab Al Sharms cave.
