Israel must withdraw all settlers from West Bank


Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank violate Palestinian human rights and must be withdrawn, United Nations investigators said Thursday -- a move described by observers as “unprecedented.”

LINKAn international report by the U.N. Human Rights Council said Israel is “committing serious breaches of its obligations under the right to self-determination and under humanitarian law.”

All settlers must begin to withdraw from the occupied territories, the report said. It echoed the earlier claim of Palestinians that the the practices of settlers could be considered possible war crimes by the International Criminal Court.

Israel, which did not cooperate with the investigation, dismissed the document as “biased” and said it would “only hamper efforts to find a sustainable solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.”

Tel Aviv-based Haaretz said the “unprecedented” conclusion was the U.N.’s “harshest condemnation of Israeli policy in West Bank since 1967.”

About 250 settlements in the West Bank have been established since 1967 and they hold an estimated 520,000 settlers, the U.N. said.

The Zionists will destroy all sons of Muhammad and feast on the blood of the False Prophet.

If I were Israel I'd tell the UN come in and try to move me out.

The Israelis won that land in a war they DID NOT start. And yet it's somehow under occupation? Wars have consequences. Don't start nothing, won't be nothing.

Are these military settlements or just citizens living their life?

The moment Israel gives up the West Bank and Gaza is the day the US should give up all land gains made during the Spanish-American and the Mexican Wars.

You must have creamed your jeans when you read that article.


A question for you to answer. How is it that after 60 plus years are there still refugee camps in Arab countries that said to the Palestinians in 48 to leave "Palestine", and why are they not considered CITIZENS of those nations by now?

The difference here though is the United States actually started the conflicts between Mexico in 1846 and Spain in 1898. I may be wrong, but I think most of Israel's territorial gains since their foundation in 1946-47 have come from wars waged on them by their Arab neighbors.

What's next British from New England, then Canada? French from Canada? Texans from Texas?



The UN is a joke.

Do you think the Central American countries are not independent?

Are you really trying to defend that pathetic analogy?

No such place as a palestanian provence. UN shouldn't be in the business of taking away land that was lost in war.

This is getting to be a serious issue within Israel and a large portion of Israelis are taking a stand in protest against their government's position.

What are these settlers doing that would be considered crimes against humanity?
