"The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies."
International law is explicit, fundamental, inviolable, and sacrosanct.
A Final Comment
On July 10, a Haaretz editorial headlined "Bury the report," saying:
"The committee headed by former Supreme Court Justice Edmond Levy, in effect, annexed the territories to the State of Israel, when it recommended that all Israeli outposts be sanctioned."
Since 1967, Israel institutionalized military occupation. International laws call it illegal. Nonetheless, Israel continues to "expropriate private, Palestinian-owned land and to classify hundreds of thousands of acres as 'state land.' "
Levy's report turned international law on its head.
"Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, who opposed the creation of Levy's committee, has a responsibility to explain to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the profound international law implications of adopting the report's recommendations."
"Netanyahu must shelve the report and insist that the executive branch of his government enforce, without delay, the judicial orders regarding all of the outposts, starting with those built on private land."
