GENEVA -- The United Nations' first report on the broad policy of Israeli settlements concluded Thursday that the government's practice of "creeping annexation" clearly violates the human rights of Palestinians, and called for an immediate halt.In its report to the 47-nation Human Rights Council, a panel of investigators said Israel is violating international humanitarian law under the Fourth Geneva Convention, one of the treaties that establish the ground rules for what is considered humane during wartime.
we know we have been dealing with the right wing of Israeli gov't, the saber rattling is inline, but they are doing so IMO because we have claimed we have their back, but once you attempt because of that promise you are expecting us to die and spend our m0ney on behalf of your spoiling for a fight,ain't that kinda party, unless you exhausted all other ave. and intelligence tells you it's imminent ok but an arbitrary motive America is not imo willing to die for their war that they don't seem to want to solve after years of opposition,
guess their right wing is ammune to compromise too.
The Israeli government has persisted in settling Palestinian-occupied territories, including East Jerusalem and the West Bank, "despite all the pertinent United Nations resolutions declaring that the existence of the settlements is illegal and calling for their cessation," the report said.
if you are defying international law and are wrong why should we honor their dishonor?
