Peace Now published this April 29, 2014

9 Months of Talks, 9 Months of Settlement Development

29/4/14

During the 9 months of Secretary John Kerry’s efforts in the region, the Netanyahu Government promoted plans and tenders for at least 13,851 housing units in the settlements and East Jerusalem – 
an average of 50 units per day and 1,540 units per month.

The 13,851 units include:

Tenders for 4,868 units – 2,248 of them in West Bank settlements and 2,620 units in East Jerusalem. (The were also tenders for another 1,235 units in re-issued tenders, where the tenders are calls for bids to buy units that weren’t sold in previous tenders).

Promotion of plans for 8,983 units – 6,561 of them in West Bank settlements and 2,422 in East Jerusalem.

How the Berlin Wall compares to Israel’s Apartheid Wall of Shame in the West Bank… (The UN ordered the demolition of this wall, but Israel doesn’t give a shit of the opinion of world community)

The plans were in all West Bank areas:

Plans for 4,793 units in isolated settlements (73%)

Plans for 1,768 units in settlements closer to the Green Line (27%)

The average yearly number of tenders was 4 times higher compared to previous years:

Doubling the number of construction Starts:

According to the Israeli CBS data, in the second half of year 2013, some 828 new units were started to be built in the settlements, while at the equivalent time in 2012, only 484 units started. (the CBS data does not include the first three months of 2014).

New Settlements and Outposts:

Two new outposts were established – the Brosh outpost at the Jordan Valley and Givat Eitam, south of Bethlehem.

A New settlement at the heart of the City of Hebron was established for the first time since the 80’s.

Four outposts were legalized by promoting plans for them: Nahalei Tal and Zayit Ra’anan (near Ramallah), Givat Sal’it (in The Jordan Valley) and Elmatan (near Qalqilya).

A new settlement was founded, when 60 families moved in to live in the settlement of Leshem near Salfit.

In East Jerusalem – two big tourist projects in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan were promoted (the Kedem compound and the Spring House), and the National Park at the lands of Issawiya was approved.

In addition, the Ministry of Housing published tenders for preparing plans for 24,000 units in several settlements in the West Bank, including in E1. Following the publication by Peace Now, the tenders were cancelled.

Peace Now: Not only that the construction and the announcements of settlements were destructive for the American efforts and for the faith between the two sides, it also created facts on the ground that proved more than anything else that the Netanyahu Government did not mean to go for a two states solution but rather acted in order to strengthen the Israeli control over the Occupied Territories.

Anti-immigration riots hit “African neighbourhood” of Tel Aviv/Israel?

Phoebe Greenwood posted from Tel Aviv on May 24:

 “Tel Aviv has been hit by the most violent protests in its recent history after more than 1,000 Israelis took to the streets in the city’s south to demand the deportation of African immigrants and asylum seekers.
Israeli anti-immigration riots hit African neighbourhood of Tel Aviv

The predominately black neighbourhood of Hatikva was ransacked by groups of nationalist protesters who had attended a demonstration on Wednesday night against illegal African migrants.

The protesters claim the Africans are responsible for a rise in crime, bearing signs saying “This is not Africa” and “Stop talking, start expelling”.

“Blacks out!” shouted demonstrators in the crowd, while others yelled “Send the Sudanese back to Sudan”, as other protesters derided the “bleeding-heart leftists” working to help them.

The mob set cans of rubbish on fire, smashed the windows of shops owned by Eritrean migrants and beat up Africans walking through the streets.

TJ, a 29-year-old migrant from Nigeria, watched the violent chaos from his rooftop having been chased and pelted with rocks when he attempted to leave his house. TJ said: “There were protesters everywhere smashing shop and car windows, A group of about 10 or 15 boys stopped one black kid cycling on his bike. They pulled him off and were punching and kicking him in his head. The police just stood and watched until it got really out of control.”

Other witnesses described a gang assaulting a mother carrying a young baby so violently that she was forced to drop her child. Others stopped shuttle buses to search for migrant workers among their passengers.

The Israeli police confirmed they had arrested 17 suspects involved in “a protest against illegal African immigrants”. Extra police units were positioned to prevent further violence in the area last night.

Peace Now, an Israeli human rights organisation, is calling for an investigation into whether the speakers at Wednesday night’s rally, including Knesset ministers Miri Regev, Danny Danon, Yari Levin and Michael Ben-Ari, are guilty of incitement.

During her address, Ms Regev described illegal immigrants as a “cancer in our society“.

Danny Danon, a member of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, wrote in a Facebook status later the same evening: “Israel is at war. An enemy state of infiltrators was established in Israel, and its capital is south Tel Aviv.”

According to Israeli government figures, there are currently 60,000 African asylum seekers in Israel. The vast majority come from Eritrea and Sudan and were smuggled into the country by foot through Israel’s southern border with Egypt, many having been beaten and tortured by their smugglers in camps in the Sinai en route.

Israel terms any illegal immigrant through this border an ‘infiltrator’ and estimate 90 per cent are economic migrants coming to Israel to look for work – a stark contrast to the figures in England and Canada, where 66 per cent and 96 per cent of Eritreans who arrive illegally are granted refugee status.

The Israeli government currently does not deport Eritreans or Sudanese.  However, Yehuda Weinstein, Israel’s attorney general, will appear before the Jerusalem District Court next week to argue that there is no longer a legal obstacle to expelling 700 Southern Sudanese refugees. If approved, Israel will be the first country to have reached this decision.

Defending her position on Thursday, Ms Regev insisted that while she does not condone violence, African immigrants pose a grave demographic threat to Israel.  Regev said: “Israel should adopt the US protocol of returning infiltrators to the border within 72 hours … Jews and Israelis are scared of living in their country”.

Mr Danon’s proposition to prevent further violence was to deport the city’s African residents “to detention facilities and remove Africans from population centres”.

Bracing themselves for a second round of nationalist protests on Thursday evening, the residents of Hatikva are struggling to resume normal life.

‘TJ’ says he is among the few who has left his home following the violence: “Black people have been too afraid to leave their homes to go to work today. Racism in Tel Aviv is not only getting worse it’s getting out of hand and the police are no help. We are terrified.”
