Under its latest fascist ethnocratic government with Netanyahoo at the helm, Israel steps up its vile theft of Palestinian land in East Jerusalem – Palestinians are evicted and their homes demolished so Jewish settlers can move in. Under international law, Israel acts illegally and thus far, with impunity, eroding the peace process in order to make both two state and one state solutions impossible. According to Israeli peace organisation B’t Selem, Israel has demolished 350 Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem since 2004.
Courtesy of the enterprising Mondoweiss, here’s a Google map of illegal Israeli settlements from the recently leaked database. The map will be updated as more data comes to light.
To help get the word out, Mondo reader Jamie Dyer has used the information in the translated excerpts of the database to create this google map. “Making the map helped me to see the strategic placement of these settlements. The hilltops are being systematically taken in a sort of inversion of the topography of justice,” Dyer writes.
