Several observations in response to the Jerusalem Post article concerning the Palestinian Authority building in Area C:
#1. "illegal land grabs" The Israeli press has the audacity to call this an illegal land grab when they know darn well that Israel has been doing it for decades. In America, we have a saying: "What is good for the goose is good for the gander." If Israel can illegally land grab so can we.
#2. " Allocation of final sovereignty in Area C was to be determined in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority under the Oslo Accords and the Bush Roadmap of 2002." Israel has determined that this means that Israel can build in Area C and not Palestinians. They stall final "determinations" so that they can continue to build and build while not allowing us to build.
#3. "state lands" I have written that Israel already considers Area C to be Israeli state land. They have no intention to give this up. Although the Jerusalem Post article readily admits that "final sovereignty in Area C was to be determined in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority" it is Israel that has the exclusive right to build on this land. Hogwash! Read my article at http://fadizanayed.blogspot.com/2012/02/apartheid-israel-policy-to-retain-area.html
#4. If anyone does not think that Israeli bulldozers purchased with American aid dollars from Caterpillar Corporation will not demolish these buildings then the Israeli propaganda campaign creating the world gullibility conscience has succeeded. Long live Rachel Corrie!
