jewsign Israel Locks up 1-Year Old African Invaders—But US Jews Condemn Trump for ‘Unjust’ Immigration Policy

Quote:
The state of Israel locks up children of African invaders as young as one year-old—at the same time that the Israel-supporting US Jewish lobby has publicly condemned the Trump Administration for its “unjust” immigration policy.


A letter issued June 15 by 27 national Jewish organizations and institutions addressed to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, said that they were writing to “express our strong opposition to the recently expanded ‘zero-tolerance’ policy that includes separating children from their migrant parents when they cross the border. This policy undermines the values of our nation and jeopardizes the safety and well-being of thousands of people.

“As Jews, we understand the plight of being an immigrant fleeing violence and oppression. We believe that the United States is a nation of immigrants and how we treat the stranger reflects on the moral values and ideals of this nation.”

The letter goes on to berate the Trump administration for locking up illegal immigrants pretending to be refugees, saying that “those seeking asylum or other legal protection face numerous obstacles to making a claim, especially from detention.”
https://www.ou.org/community/notices...ration-policy/
The letter was signed by the American Conference of Cantors, American Jewish Committee (AJC), American Jewish World Service, Anti-Defamation League, B’nai B’rith International, Bend the Arc Jewish Action, Central Conference of American Rabbis, Hadassah, The Women’s Zionist Organization of America, Inc., HIAS, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Jewish Labor Committee, Jewish Women International, Men of Reform Judaism, National Association of Jewish Legislators, National Council of Jewish Women, Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies, NFTY – The Reform Jewish Youth Movement, Orthodox Union, Rabbinical Assembly, Reconstructing Judaism, Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association, The Workmen’s Circle, T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, Union for Reform Judaism, United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, Uri L’Tzedek, The Orthodox Social Justice Movement, and the Women of Reform Judaism.

All these organizations are fanatic supporters of Israel.


The latest example of the Jewish policy in dealing with illegal immigrants in their own country was revealed in a front page report in the Israeli language Maariv newspaper, which prompted the Israeli News Channel 10 to make a news item about the practice.https://www.10.tv/news/167303


According to the Maariv report, the Givon Prison near Ramle in Israel “houses half a dozen children under the age of 7 without appropriate facilities or support staff” whose mothers are awaiting deportation.

The daily published photos and videos of six children — aged 1 to 7 — who it said are incarcerated with their mothers at the Givon Prison near Ramle.

Marcy, a Nigerian mother who invaded Israel in 2010, said that she and her four children had been at Givon for over three weeks.


“Nearly a month has passed, but the children aren’t getting used to it,” she told Maariv in tears. “The opposite, it’s becoming harder for them. Every time they play too energetically and go wild, the prison guards tell them: ‘If you make noise, we’ll lock you in your room.’

“It’s not nice, they aren’t free, they know this isn’t home. They ask me all the time when we’re going home and I tell them ‘very soon,’” Marcy said.

“I don’t tell them a specific time because I don’t really know,” she added. Marcy’s husband was deported to Nigeria last year, splitting up the family, the exact thing for which the Israel-supporting US Jewish lobby has condemned the Trump Administration.

jewsign Israel: Jews Set to Pass “Nation State” Bill which Legalizes Race Segregation, Justifies Land Theft

Quote:
The Israeli government is set to put forward its long-awaited “nation state” bill which legalizes race segregation between Jews and non-Jews, and which promotes “Jewish settlement” [in Palestinian territories] as a “national value.”


According to reports in the Israeli media,
https://www.timesofisrael.com/netany...bill-language/
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the Jewish state bill, saying that the Jews have “majority rights.”

“Most Israelis want to preserve the Jewish identity of the country, and that the majority rules,” Netanyahu was quoted as saying. “The vast majority of people want to preserve the Jewish character of our country for generations to come.”

Originally, one clause of the “Jewish state bill,” numbered 7B, said that the state was allowed to “authorize a community composed of people having the same faith and nationality to maintain the exclusive character of that community.”

This clause has however been changed to replace it with a call for strengthening the Jewish presence in predominantly Arab Israeli areas.



The new version of clause 7B now reads: “The state views the development of Jewish settlement as a national value and will act to encourage and promote its establishment and consolidation.”

The law will face a Knesset committee vote today before final plenary votes on the law ahead of the parliament’s summer recess on July 22, the Times of Israel reported.

If passed, the law would become one of the so-called Basic Laws, which like a constitution underpin Israel’s legal system and are more difficult to repeal than regular laws.

Judaism is already mentioned throughout the country’s laws, and religious authorities control many aspects of life, including marriage. But the 11 existing Basic Laws deal mostly with state institutions like the Knesset, the courts and the presidency.

In addition, the law would also set Hebrew as the official language of Israel. Arabic would be removed as an official language in a clear snub to the remaining Palestinians in Israel—those who managed to survive the initial ethnic cleansing of that territory by the Jews.

The law would also declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, make explicit the connection between Diaspora Jewry and the state and fix the Hebrew calendar as the official calendar of the state, as well as recognizing Independence Day, days of remembrance and Jewish holidays.

jewsign Israel: Likud Election Campaign Feature anti-African “It’s us or them: Infiltrators versus Hebrew City” Posters

Quote:
: Likud Election Campaign Feature anti-African “It’s us or them: Infiltrators versus Hebrew City” Posters

The jew Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party is fighting the Tel Aviv local government election campaign with a poster showing blacks waving an Eritrean flag contrasted with a Star of David flag with the words “It’s us or them: City of Infiltrators versus Hebrew City”—an image and slogan which if used by non-Jews anywhere else would cause the Jewish lobby-controlled media to be up in arms over “racism.”


According to a report in the Jerusalem Post, the posters have been put up by Likud’s Tel Aviv faction in south Tel Aviv ahead of the October 30 municipal elections.

The anti-black poster takes the form of a split screen, one half with an image of Africans waving an Eritrean flag above the words “city of infiltrators” and the other half with an Israeli flag under the words “the Hebrew city.”

Another poster being used shows a Palestinian holding his flag above the words “the Islamic Movement in Jaffa” contrasted with the same Israeli flag image and “Hebrew city” slogan.




The Jewish lobby controlled media in the west has, of course, been completely silent on the Likud campaign, despite it featuring widely in Israeli media (here and here, for example).

If however, any party anywhere else in the world had to put up posters and campaign with a similar slogan and image—or, if some party put up a poster saying “It’s us or them: Jews versus Non-Jew City,” this same media and the Jewish lobby would be screaming “racist” and “anti-Semite” from the rooftops, and calling for immediate action to halt and stifle the perpetrators, or have them arrested for “racial incitement.”

It is, as usual, one set of standards for Jews, and another set for non-Jews.

“I am a third generation resident of Tel Aviv. My grandchildren are fifth generation. Entire neighborhoods are being chased away by illegal infiltrators… We demand to expel everyone who came illegally and send them back to their homelands. We in Likud are trying to preserve the Jewish Zionist traditional character of this city. What is wrong or racist about it?”

Likud deputy mayor of Tel Aviv Arnon Giladi.

jewsign “Assimilation is Consuming Jews”: Israeli Interior Minister Warns against Jews Marrying Non-Jews

Quote:
“Assimilation is Consuming Jews”: Israeli Interior Minister Warns against Jews Marrying Non-Jews

Israeli Interior Minister Arye Dery has warned that racial assimilation between Jews and non-Jews will “consume” the Jewish people, that he is “against such things,” while another Likud party lawmaker condemned it as “preventing another Jewish generation from continuing the Jewish dynasty.”


..........Needless to say, the Jewish lobby controlled media in the West will ignore these comments, contrary to that media’s behavior when any European politician might express an interest in preserving European racial identity. If any European politician had made a remark condemning Jews who married Europeans, then literally all hell would break loose–but because it is Jews saying it, the media will simply black these remarks out.

jewsign Israel: Jews have Shot Dead 217, Wounded 22,897 Palestinians Since March 2017, says UN

Quote:
At least 217 Palestinians have been shot and killed by Jews in Israel since March 2017, and have wounded another 22,897 with live fire, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has announced—staggering figures which have been completely suppressed by the jewish -controlled media.


Last Friday, another five Palestinians were shot dead by Israeli soldiers and 170 others wounded during protests at the Gaza border, the Gaza health ministry has announced. Another 100 Palestinians were injured by Israeli fire as Israel ramped up its military presence along the fence separating it from the blockaded Gaza Strip.https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/i...stry-766252006

Dozens were also injured by tear gas fired by Israeli forces towards the demonstrators participating in the protests, which were held for the 31st week in a row.

In response to the deaths, Gaza’s ruling Hamas fired 14 rockets towards Israel, 10 of which were intercepted, military spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus said on Twitter.

The Israeli military launched air strikes in retaliation at three positions belonging to Hamas, an army statement said.

In late March, Palestinians launched the Great March of Return, gathering peacefully along the “buffer zone” in Gaza near the fence separating it from Israel.


The protest campaign calls for an end to the 11-year Israeli-led blockade on Gaza and for Palestinian refugees’ right of return to the lands that their families fled during the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.

Also on Friday, a Palestinian man was killed by Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank.

The man, identified as Othman Ladadwa by medical sources, was shot from behind with live ammunition. The bullet pierced organs in his lower abdomen, the Palestinian health ministry said.

Witnesses said clashes began when Israeli settlers visited a site near the village of al-Mizraa al-Gharbiya in the occupied West Bank and Palestinians threw stones at them.

Israeli forces then fired both tear gas and ammunition at the Palestinians, the witnesses said.

Another Palestinian man was shot in the head and is in serious condition, the health ministry said.

jewsign Israeli Parliament Says No to Homo Child Surrogacy, Upholding Ban on Homo Marriage

11/2/18

Quote:
The Israeli parliament has voted down a proposed law to allow homos to have children by surrogacy, upholding their earlier decision to outlaw homo marriage.


According to a report in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Israel’s Knesset rejected a bill “to extend surrogacy to single men and same-sex parents” this week during a preliminary reading in a 49-41 vote. In July, the Knesset passed a surrogacy law that expanded eligibility to single women.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voted against an amendment to include same-sex couples and men, saying it was out of fear that a vote in support would bring down the government.

Four coalition members voted for the legislation: the Likud’s Amir Ohana, who is gay, and Sharren Haskel, head of the “LGBT Knesset caucus,” and Kulanu’s Merav Ben-Ari and Tali Ploskov.

Zionist Union lawmaker Itzik Shmuli, who is a homo, on the Knesset floor called on Netanyahu to “look me in the eye” and “tell me how is it that Yigal Amir can [be a parent] and I can’t?” (Amir, a right wing Jew who assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in November 1995 because he was too “left wing,” fathered a child with his wife during a conjugal visit in prison in 2006).

In 2015, the Israeli parliament’s Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted down a bill that would make it illegal to discriminate against “LGBT” people in any way.

In 2013, a bill aimed at blocking discrimination on religious grounds and allowing for civil marriage regardless of race, sex, citizenship, and religion, was defeated in the Israeli parliament.

“The Freedom of Religion and Conscience Bill” was rejected by a 56 to 21 margin in its preliminary reading in the Knesset.

jewsign Mixing between Jews and Non-Jews is a “Crisis,” says Israeli Government

Quote:
Racial mixing, or “assimilation” between Jews and non-Jews is a “crisis” which is undermining the link between Diaspora Jews and Israel, that country’s official Diaspora Minister Naftali Bennett has said.





According to a report in the Jerusalem-based Times of Israel, Bennett said that “assimilation”—the Jewish code word for mixing with non-Jews—along with“apathy,” was the main reason why there was an “unprecedented crisis” in Israeli-Jewish Diaspora relations.

Speaking during a presentation of his ministry’s activities in the Israeli cabinet, Bennett said that“Israel-Diaspora relations are in an unprecedented crisis.

“We’re often told this is because of the Western Wall and because of the Palestinian issue and because of other ideological disagreements. That’s not true. There’s a dire assimilation crisis and growing apathy among Jews in the Diaspora toward their Judaism and toward Israel. That’s the whole story, and it has reached the scale of a national challenge.”

He then listed the ministry’s programs to address the growing rift, noting, according to his office, increased study about Diaspora communities in the education system and other efforts to raise awareness about Diaspora communities among Israelis, the government’s fundin gfor Birthright Israel, and the “Mosaic United” program for strengthening Jewish identity on campuses, as well as government tracking of anti-Semitism worldwide and aid to affected Jewish communities.

Bennett also said that he was looking for a plan to boost the emigration of Jews from France to Israel.


“There are 200,000 French Jews who want to come here, and the state bureaucracies simply aren’t prepared for it,” he said,adding, “These are ethical people, Zionists, lovers of the Jewish people and the Land of Israel, and it is our moral obligation to help them.”

“Two weeks ago I launched an informal education program for French immigrants,” he informed fellow ministers, “but it’s not enough. We need a comprehensive plan led by the government.”

After his presentation, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed Bennett to team up with the Prime Minister’s Office National Economic Council to draft an umbrella framework for government-wide action focused on increasing aliyah, or Jewish immigration, from France, according to a statement from Bennett’s office.

The program is to be presented to the Ministerial Committee for Absorption and Immigration, which is chaired by Netanyahu, who currently also serves as minister of absorption, and includes Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin,Tourism Minister Yariv Levin, NEC chair Avi Simhon and the prime minister’s chief of staff Yoav Horowitz.

jewsign Israel Opens New Racially Segregated Road as Part of Palestinian Ethnic Cleansing

Quote:
. 1/20/19. Israel has just inaugurated a 5-kilometer double land racially segregated highway outside Jerusalem, with Arabs and Jews divided by a 26 foot central wall, part of the ongoing larger campaign to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians from the entire region.




News of Route 4370’s opening this past week was completely suppressed in the West’s Jewish lobby controlled media, and news of it has only appeared on the Russian RT service, which still maintains nominal independence (and is thus hated by the controlled media).https://www.rt.com/news/448771-west-...regation-road/

jewsign Confirmed: Israel Using DNA Tests to Racially-Screen Would-be Immigrants

Quote:
Confirmed: Israel Using DNA Tests to Racially-Screen Would-be Immigrants


Israeli rabbinical courts are regularly using DNA tests to test the claims of Jewish racial descent by would-be immigrants in Israel, confirming that Jews are in a fact a biological race, a new report in the Israeli Haaretz newspaper has confirmed.

News of the use of DNA tests has been known as far back as July 2013, when an official statement from the Israeli Prime Minister’s office in Tel Aviv, said that the Jewish government was about to introduce DNA testing to ensure that no non-Jews from Russia enter the country.http://www.timesofisrael.com/russian...need-dna-test/

This development is the surest sign yet that Jewishness is not a cultural construct, but a biological one, and also further evidence that the “Khazar theory”—which would have introduced non-Semitic elements into the Jewish gene pool—is incorrect, as proved by earlier DNA evidence.

According to the Times of Israel, “would-be immigrants from former Soviet Union may be asked to prove [their] Jewish bloodline” and will be “subjected to DNA testing to prove their Jewishness.”

The announcement said “many Jews from the FSU [Russia] who were born out-of-wedlock can be required to bring DNA confirmation of Jewish heritage in order to be allowed to immigrate as a Jew.

“A source in the PMO told Maariv that the consul’s procedure, approved by the legal department of the Interior Ministry, states that a Russian-speaking child born out-of-wedlock is eligible to receive an Israeli immigration visa if the birth was registered before the child turned 3. Otherwise a DNA test to prove Jewish parentage is necessary.

“A Foreign Ministry spokesman said that the decision to require DNA testing for Russian Jews is based on the recommendations of Nativ, an educational program under the auspices of the Prime Minister’s Office to help Jews from the FSU immigrate to Israel.

“The issue cuts to the heart of Israel’s Law of Return, which allows anybody with a Jewish parent, grandparent or spouse to move to Israel and be eligible for citizenship. Determining who is a Jew — a definition which has evolved along with the religion’s many streams — has led the interior Ministry to create a somewhat byzantine system of checks and rules and has sometimes led applicants, especially converts to Judaism, to fight for the right to immigrate in Israeli courts.”

This demand for DNA tests for immigrants to Israel contrasts dramatically with the demand for open borders made by all Jewish organizations in America and elsewhere.

jewsign Jews-only Housing in London Gets Court Backing

Quote:
Jews in Britain have won court approval for public housing developments to be made available exclusively to Jews, even if non-Jews in the same area have an equal or greater need for accommodation, the Evening Standard newspaper has revealed.


According to the report, titled “Orthodox Jewish housing association’s relief after discrimination case victory,” the chief executive of an Orthodox Jewish housing association has said she “never gave a moment’s thought” to the possibility of losing a discrimation [sic] case launched against it.

Agudas Israel Housing Association, who are based in Stamford Hill, were accused of breaking equality laws after listing a property which was specifically for Jews only.

A family who wanted to bid on new flats were told they were unable to because consideration was only given to Orthodox Jews.

They took the housing association to court on the grounds that housing should be provided on the basis of need, not religion. They argued that it was “direct discrimination of a very scarce resource, public housing” and that the case “concerned the question of whether or not it is lawful for housing to be allocated on the basis of religion, not need.”

Chief executive of the housing association, Ita Symons, said she “never gave a moment’s thought” to the idea of the organisation losing their battle.

Symons said: “Our lawyers said we had a clear case, because of two things – we are a charity, and the community has such particular needs that it is proportionate that we use the development for our needs.

“Luckily we were successful, because it means that we can continue our work and continue to fulfil our mission statement. I never gave a moment’s thought to the idea of us losing, because that would have been awful, it would have been unbearable.

“I don’t understand why they would want to live in this project – there are Hasidic men, with their sidelocks and beards, speaking in a language which they wouldn’t understand. Why would you want to enter such a different culture?

“Nothing like this has happened before, and I’ve been doing this for over 30 years.”

It of course requires no imagination to predict what a court’s decision would have been had a public housing charity in Britain openly advertised its residential accommodation as being for “non-Jews” only.

jewsign New Israeli Government Will Relaunch African Expulsion Policy

5/14/19
Quote:
Israel will relaunch its policy to expel all African invaders pretending to be refugees from the Jews-only state—as soon as coalition talks on forming that country’s new government have been finalized.


According to a report in the Times of Israel,
https://www.timesofisrael.com/likud-...milies-report/
Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party “plans to revive bids to expel migrants, terrorists’ families” once the coalition talks—which are expected to be completed within the next two weeks, are finalized.

According to the Times of Israel, the Likud party has told prospective coalition partners that they must support two bills, “one of which was previously struck down by the High Court of Justice as unconstitutional and another that the attorney general described as an infringement of human rights.”

Likud is including the bills, allowing the detention of invaders for up to three years and enabling the forcible relocation of relatives of Palestinian attackers from their homes, in a legal annex to coalition agreements, the report said, quoting a Ynet news report.

“The purpose of the override clause is to enable the Knesset, which was elected by the people, to legislate the policies for which it was elected,” a source said, according to the report. “We will do this on many levels, among them the campaign against terror, and also removing migrants from Israel.”

In 2013, the Israeli High Court ruled that an amendment allowing the state to detain illegal migrants for up to three years without charging them with a crime was unconstitutional. The Knesset in December 2014 eventually approved a watered-down bill easing detention procedures for African invaders, but also “motivating” those in the country to leave by enabling their incarceration in a detention facility for up to 20 months.

As part of a series of measures targeting Palestinian perpetrators of attacks, the Ministerial Committee for Legislation voted in December 2018 to advance a bill that would permit the IDF’s Central Command to expel the relatives of Palestinian assailants from their hometowns to other parts of the West Bank within a week of an attack or attempted attack.



The next day, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced his official opposition to the bill, warning that the proposal could infringe on human rights and spark international condemnation of Israel.

Earlier this week, the Haaretz newspaper reported that Netanyahu planned to promote a bill that would allow the government to override the High Court of Justice on administrative as well as legislative matters.

Last year the government gave its approval for a so-called override bill that would give a majority of 61 MKs the ability to overturn High Court decisions to strike down Knesset legislation as unconstitutional.

Although the bill advanced no further, following last month’s elections Netanyahu is likely to form a new coalition relying on “right-wing” nationalist parties that generally support the legislation.

Since 2006, at least 50,000 Eritreans and Sudanese, pretending to be refugees, invaded Israel seeking to parasite off the welfare system there, via the Sinai desert. The Jews-only state responding by building a massive border fence—which halted the invasion completely—and by constructing the Holot concentration camp in the Negev desert to house the Africans pending their expulsion.

Default jews Ethnically Cleansing Jerusalem of Non-jews: UN Calls for Halt to Demolitions

Quote:
Jews are systematically engaged in the ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem on non-Jews, and have illegally demolished more than 111 buildings to make way for Jewish housing so far this year, according to official figures released in a protest note by the United Nations.


A statement issued by the United Nations’ Humanitarian Coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt), Jamie McGoldrick, called for an “immediate halt to the Israeli authorities’ destruction of Palestinian-owned property in East Jerusalem.”
https://www.ochaopt.org/content/un-o...ernational-law
McGoldrick said that “demolitions in East Jerusalem have increased at a staggering pace over the last month, leaving tens of Palestinians displaced and others who have lost their livelihoods overnight. This must stop.”

As of 30 April 2019, 111 Palestinian-owned structures had been destroyed in East Jerusalem in 2019, either directly by the Israeli authorities or self-demolished by their owners to avoid hefty fines, following the issuance of demolition orders for lack of building permits. Of these, 57 per cent (63 out of 111) were demolished in April.


Of particular concern, on 30 April, Israeli security forces demolished four structures in the Wadi Yasul area of Silwan, forcibly evicting 11 Palestine refugees, including seven children, with an additional refugee family losing personal property. Five people were seriously injured by Israeli forces, who used beatings, stun grenades and sponge-covered bullets as residents tried to retrieve belongings prior to the demolitions.

One man, whose home was destroyed, was injured with a sponge-covered bullet to his back and subsequently arrested. He was heavily beaten by Israeli security forces during the arrest and the transfer to the Israeli detention centre. He remains in custody.

These demolitions were preceded by those of two other structures in Wadi Yasul on 17 April. Nearly all structures in Wadi Yasu
l face a heightened risk of demolition following the near complete exhaustion of efforts to protect homes in the area; over 550 people face the threat of displacement as a result, around a quarter of whom are registered Palestine refugees.


“Some of the elderly refugees in Wadi Yasul who were originally displaced as a result of the 1948 conflict now face the prospect of losing their homes for the second time in their lifetime. For them and for the younger generations this cycle of loss is being perpetuated” said Ms. Gwyn Lewis, Director of West Bank Operations for UNRWA. “As we have seen from the numerous cases UNRWA has responded to in the past, displacement, particularly for the most vulnerable, such as the elderly and children is extremely traumatic, destroys livelihoods, and separates families from their communities.”


“As the occupying power of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, Israel is obligated to ensure the welfare and well-being of the local Palestinian population,” said Mr. James Heenan, Head of OHCHR in the occupied Palestinian territory. “The implementation of the discriminatory Israeli zoning and planning regime cannot be invoked by Israel to justify any violation of international law.”
Background


Following the occupation of the West Bank in 1967, Israel unilaterally annexed East Jerusalem to its territory, in contravention of international law. In East Jerusalem, as in Area C of the West Bank, a restrictive planning regime applied by Israel makes it virtually impossible for Palestinians to obtain building permits, impeding the development of adequate housing, infrastructure and livelihoods.


Only 13 per cent of East Jerusalem is zoned for Palestinian construction, much of which is already built up, while 35 per cent has been allocated for Israeli settlements, which are illegal under international law.
Demolitions, forced evictions, and the discriminatory and restrictive planning regime are elements of a coercive environment created by a range of Israeli practices and policies that pressures many Palestinians throughout the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, to leave certain areas and generates a risk of forcible transfer, which is a grave breach of the Fourth Geneva Convention. The Fourth Geneva Convention also prohibits the destruction of personal property unless rendered absolutely necessary by military operations. Forced eviction contrary to international law also violates the right to adequate housing and the right to privacy, and may be incompatible with other human rights.


*Following original publication of this statement, confirmation of the arrested man’s release on bail was received. He has been ordered not to return to Wadi Yasul for a period of 14 days.
