Israel refuses. Historic injustices continue. Netanyahu wants harsher enforcement. He represents the worst of despot authority.

From day to day, Bedouin communities aren't sure whether police, soldiers and bulldozers will show up to evict them forcibly.

Israeli Jews and Arabs face public housing crisis conditions. The issue was central during summer 2011 protesters. Netanyahu promised change. He lied. He did nothing. Harsh neoliberal policies remain. 

Knesset hardliners oppose affordable housing legislation. At the same time, they "systematically eviscerate" what's left of public housing.

Water rights were harmed when rates were raised sharply. Nothing in place or planned protects disadvantaged, elderly or disabled Israelis. Arab citizens and Palestinians are entirely out of luck.

West Bank housing and water rights are more tenuous. Palestinians are gravely affected. Israel controls Area C. Many Palestinians live there. Brutal persecution affects them.

Homes are demolished. Cisterns are destroyed. Netanyahu's Levy Commission recommendations will be followed.

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."
