DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:40 A.M)- Yesterday, a bill was proposed by a member of the Israeli Knesset, seeking to allow Jewish Israeli citizens to purchase land in the illegally occupied West Bank.

Bezalel Smotrich, a member of the Israeli Knesset, has proposed a bill which seeks to allow Jewish Israelis the right to buy land in the illegally occupied West Bank. Smotrich’s bill was set to be considered by ‘The Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation’ this Sunday.

The bill, if drafted into legislation, will amend the 1953 agreement that permits Jordanian and Palestinian citizens the ability to purchase property inside of the occupied West Bank. Despite the bill, disallowing Israeli Jews to buy land in the occupied territories, Israeli’s began to purchase property in the 1970’s through registered organizations in the West Bank.

As of 1995, after the Oslo Accords, the West Bank was divided into three separate area’s; Area A, B and C.

Area C represents roughly 60% of the West Bank’s territory. Following the Oslo Agreements Israel were to maintain a full military occupation of this area for 5 years, before handing it over to the Palestinian Authority (PA). Area C is still today under a full Israeli Military occupation and has been so heavily saturated with Israeli Settlers, that Illegal Israeli Settlers now outnumber Palestinians in the area.

The proposed bill has been condemned by Palestinians as an attempted to further annex land in the West Bank.

The Israeli Regime does not accept the international recognized consensus, which states that the West Bank is occupied territory, and ignores the agreements that they have signed acknowledging this fact. Israel maintains that the West Bank, is in theirs, Israel refers to the territory by the biblical name “Judea and Sumaria”.

The same is true for anti – Semitism. Not only Zio-Fascism is evil.

The old 1953 law that stops the discrimination of Jews who wanted to buy land in some parts of ancient Palestine amended – so what is illegal about that – except that it used discriminated Jews?

You are not paying attention Schlomo. It is verry simple even for you;
You cannot buy or sell land that does not belong to you and then fill the area with squatters.
Whenever has Israel abided by any laws ?
You’re hasbara handbook needs to be updated to the 21st century.

ARAB PALESTINE = Jordan, JEWISH Palestine = Israel. THIS is the ONLY legitimate map under international law! : “The bill, if drafted into legislation, will amend the 1953 agreement that permits Jordanian and Palestinian citizens the ability to purchase property inside of the occupied West Bank. Despite the bill, disallowing Israeli Jews to buy land in the occupied territories, Israeli’s began to purchase property in the 1970’s through registered organizations in the West Bank.” => 1953 = Into JORDAN-OCCUPIED ISRAEL, following the 1948 ILLEGAL WAR OF AGGRESSION. Which, BTW, according to Azzam Pasha, secr. gal. of the Arab-League, was intended… Read more »

@DashagSX. The only problem with Your map is that there was no such thing as a referendum among the natives of Palestine. The Entente had pledged self rule of all nations in Wilson’s 14 points. When were the Druze in the Golan asked whether they want to be part of Jewish Palestine? Whatever. The main lasting result of the 1948 war was a population exchange between the Muslin countries and Israel. Most Jews went to Israel and most Palestinians went to Muslim countries. There is no way back. The Muslim nations stole the Jews valuables and real estate. And the… Read more »
