Normalization Dividend: More Israeli Settlements In Occupied Territories, Palestinian Homes Demolished

Apartment buildings being constructed at the Beit El settlement in the occupied West Bank

On Wednesday, Israel approved the construction of another 2,166 settlement homes in the occupied West Bank. Meanwhile, despite the pandemic, a record number of Palestinian homes and businesses have been demolished in the West Bank and East Jerusalem this year. And war games with the US continue, the US sending a squadron of F-35s to practice joint military operations with their Israeli counterparts.

Notwithstanding the relatively recent signing of normalization agreements with the UAE and Bahrain, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is proceeding with his plan to realize a de facto annexation of additional portions of the West Bank.

During their efforts to convince their subjects of the merits of ‘normalization’ of relations with Israel, the agreements were touted by UAE and Bahraini leaders as being based on the premise that new settlements would be halted.

Shortly thereafter, senior US and Israeli officials suggested that there were no binding commitments to that effect.

The two normalization agreements broke with years of Arab League policy on the Israeli occupation, which made its resolution a precondition for establishing official ties with Israel.

Israel reportedly agreed to delay its settlement expansion plans during the negotiations preceding the normalisation deal with the UAE, something Emirati officials reiterated following widespread Arab and Muslim criticism of the deal.

However, Netanyahu later said the agreement did not nullify the provisions of the Trump administration’s controversial “deal of the century” plan.

“According to the American plan, Israel will win 30 percent of Judea and Samaria (the occupied West Bank) – ten times what it was in other plans – without displacing any settlement and territories, which are necessary for Israel’s security. This is the American plan. It has not changed,” Netanyahu told newspaper Israel HaYom in August.

It is now also clear that the Israeli leadership has no intention of ending the further expansion of Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories.

More than 450,000 Israelis currently live in the illegal settlements that have been constructed in the occupied West Bank, which is inhabited by 2.7 million Palestinians.

According to official documents reviewed by AFP, 2,166 new homes in settlements across the West Bank were approved on Wednesday, after an eight-month suspension of additional settlement expansion approvals.

The latest plans, which anticipate the construction of more than 4,000 new homes in occupied Palestinian territories, are currently on the agenda of the planning committee of Israel’s Civil Administration, the military body which oversees civil affairs in the occupied West Bank.

Peace Now, an Israeli NGO, denounced the settlement approval. “Netanyahu is moving ahead at full steam toward solidifying the de facto annexation of the West Bank,” the organization said in a statement.

Among settlements where additional construction has been approved is Har Gilo, located in the southern West Bank between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

It currently has a population of about 1,600, and the construction of 560 new homes was approved on Wednesday.

Peace Now said that several ‘wildcat’ settlements, built without official Israeli government authorisation, are also being approved retroactively.

Peace Now also noted that the plans were approved by Benny Gantz, leader of the centrist Blue and White party who serves as defence minister in the coalition government with Likud.

The organization added that, with Gantz’s active participation in the scheme, “Israel will be signalling to the world its bipartisan support for the end to the concept of a two-state solution and a Palestinian state.” LINK

Settlements in the West Bank are illegal under international law, a status that was confirmed categorically by UN Security Council Resolution 2334 adopted in 2016.

The resolution reiterates that the construction of settlements by Israel in all occupied Palestinian territories constitutes a ‘flagrant violation’ of international law and has no legal validity. The resolution also demanded that Israel halt such activity and comply with its obligations as an occupying power in accordance with the terms of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

The accelerated construction of Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land is accompanied by an equally or perhaps even more devastating development for the Palestinians, the demolition of existing Palestinian homes, businesses and farms.

In late August, a detailed examination by the Times of Israel found that, notwithstanding the eight-month freeze on the approval of new settlements and the coronavirus pandemic, Israel has demolished a record number of Palestinian homes and businesses in the West Bank and East Jerusalem this year.

Despite pandemic, East Jerusalem on track for record number of home demolitions

As the health situation in city’s east grows worse, the municipality has resumed tearing down homes, leaving some out on the streets during economic crisis caused by virus.

It was in early August, as a new wave of coronavirus infections swept Jerusalem, that Silwan resident Wael Tahan finally got the letter he had always feared: his family’s home of nearly 30 years was set to be demolished by Israeli authorities, who said that it had been built illegally.

“We tried everything we could to make it legal. We did everything the municipality said, brought an engineer, worked with lawyers, we went to the courts,” Tahan told The Times of Israel.

On August 8, the bulldozers arrived and carried out their orders, rendering 25 members of Tahan’s extended family suddenly homeless…

Israeli authorities have significantly accelerated the number of home demolitions in East Jerusalem this year, despite the coronavirus pandemic and the accompanying economic crisis. Around 89 residential units have been demolished since the beginning of 2020, compared with 109 through all of last year. In the first three weeks of August alone, 24 homes were demolished, according to Ir Amim, a nonprofit that focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in Jerusalem. LINK

Meanwhile, in the skies, the US and Israeli air forces have conducted training exercises involving both countries’ F-35 fighter jets earlier this week.

As part of the third joint training exercise for the two nations’ advanced ‘fifth-generation’ aircraft – dubbed ‘Enduring Lightning III’ – pilots trained on conducting airstrikes in a hostile environment, with simulated adversaries in the air and on the ground.

US and Israeli F-35s during military exercises held earlier this year

The US Air Forces Central Command revealed some details of the exercises in a statement on Wednesday.

They involved F-35As from the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing’s 421st Expeditionary Fighter Squadron – located at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates – and Israel’s F-35I fighter from their 116th Squadron.

The 340th Expeditionary Air Refuelling Squadron at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar and the 908th Expeditionary Air Refuelling Squadron at Al Dhafra also provided aerial refuelling support with a KC-10 Extender and KC-135 Stratotanker.

Israel’s 122nd Squadron provided air traffic control support with its Nachshon aircraft, and its 115th Squadron provided F-16I fighters to serve as simulated adversary forces. LINK

The lack of interest in the Palestinian issue, even in the comments section, sums up their 75 year old predicament. The Sunni Arab regimes sold the Palestinians down the tubes by colluding with the British imperialists in the creation of the Zionist entity and then Palestinian disunity, corruption and lack of leadership sealed their fate. Unless the Palestinians unite, find a strong non-Arab sponsor like Turkey and create a strong resistance they will end up like all colonized and marginalized people. Ironically, it is the non-aligned movement that is keeping their cause alive, while the sell-out vassal Arab regimes sell them out via a fake “normalization” disaster in the making.

Traiano Welcome

The problem is the Palestinians themselves. They are too passive. If they fully embraced violent resistance they would generate the necessary interest in their cause. They tried non-violent resistance and the world forgot about them. Moral of the story: Raise Hell if you want freedom, use violence if you must.


Fatah was pretty violent. Hijacking planes and ships, killing the jews on-board. It worked…like a boomerang!

Traiano Welcome

Small scale violence.

Nothing on the scale the IDF practiced.

They should have practiced violence on the level the IDF carried out in Lebanon.

That would have established a decent balance of terror.


Or would have given the eternal beggars another excuse to exterminate more arabs. Remember that the jews are seen as “the poor people exterminated by Hitler”. They can even get away with arming Azerbaijan to conduct a progrom against armenians!!

The sheeple are brainwashed in order to develop a maternal instinct towards the jews. It will be hard to change their minds.

Traiano Welcome

“The sheeple are brainwashed in order to develop a maternal instinct towards the jews.”

Only the white man. Here in Asia we don’t have a culture of sympathy for the jew. Tell us about the holocaust we laugh in their face.

Fog of War

That was Israhelli psyops to make Palestinians look bad.

Great Khan

If no fight, then Jew take all land. Must fight, buy horse and attack.

Traiano Welcome

Me agree. Steal horse. Bring Axe and tribe. Chop Chop.


The Sunni Arab regimes WERE CREATED by british imperialists.


yean and so what, today is today and the situation will have to be sorted, the jews kicked out of the middle east for good.


“the jews kicked out of the middle east for good”

there will be war…you cannot ask the zios: “please, get out of the ME”

and a lot of people seem to not understand what a hi-tech war, on a large scale, looks like

I was watching some videos of the tests of Moskit and Tsirkon and wondering how terrifying could it be for the civilians to see something like this approaching your house and striking like a meteor!!!

Obviously the dead would be counted in the millions not thousands.

This is why responsible countries look like they are cowering ( I think of Russia, but even Iran to some extent, and China too ). They fully understand what a full fledged war in modern times means.


doubt the jews would dare to use their nukes and if they do, there will be hell to pay for the entire jewry to the point of full extinction.


Watching Netanyahu in the eyes, I feel very anxious on this point. He is the right mad man to launch a couple of H-bombs.

He has been ventilating the possibility of a first strike against Iran. The man is seriously mad.


Joint training exercises aren’t a defense pact. The US is under no treaty obligation to defend Israel. The US doesn’t want to fight Iran. It’s not going to want to fight a regional coalition implemting UN Resolutions against Israel that is much stronger than Iran.

The sooner that the Syrian war can be won and a regional military coalition for use against Israel formed. The sooner that the region’s and humanity’s Jew problem can be corrected.

Zaphod Braden

Let me tell you about a Defense Pact, being cobbled together by Netanyahu and Pompeo, which should have the hairs on the back of your neck standing up and shivering: Netanyahu, Pompeo Push Forward With US-Israel Defense Pact https://fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/net…defense-pact/258322 And here is the most utterly terrifying line in the whole article: “Details of the pact aren’t clear, beyond it committing the US to war to defend Israel.”

Fog of War

” The US is under no treaty obligation to defend Israel. ” Yes they are. This is a well established fact even if no official treaty exists.


Your comment is conflicted and doesn’t make sense. You’re talking out of both sides of your mouth.

Earth, Hitler, 1938….

It is funny how Arabs losing power day by day… Remember when US and Israel were bagging for oil because OPEC cucked them to give right to Palestinian, after they lost. The British and US then made sure those OPEC countries are in bad shapes, oil is still power…”who control the oil control the world.” Most of world oil is in ME (Venezuela, SA, Can, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, UAE, Russia, Libya.) Gas: (Russia – Iran – Qatar – Turkmenistan)

These countries with rich oil fields are important -> they can make friendship with other countries, because the world goes around oil and gas still.

BTW speaking of getting cucked I find this: https://hugelolcdn.com/i/457065.jpg

That image would have been hilarious if it were real.

Little Jew man from France marry his grandmother, she more ugly than horse iljig….hahaha

Potato Man

He married his teacher and she had 2-3 kids before Macron. …..those kids might have been his LMFAO

Potato Man

bruhh I don’t know man….she might start something “new” BTW yes that was a meme about Trump starting WWIII, I got more. I was talking about getting cucked and rememebered Trump. https://www.rvcj.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Photo-of-Melania-Trump-and-Canadian-PM-Justin-Trudeau.jpg

Bobby Twoshoes

It wouldn’t surprise me if she were getting a bit on the side but I don’t think she’s Macron’s type, maybe if Trump was married to a young black guy with no shirt… If you want to talk about cucks though, I think that’s ScoMo in the background.

Potato Man

“maybe if Trump was married to a young black guy with no shirt…If you want to talk about cucks though” LMFAO dude cucked (slang) not the real thing, “A cuckold (“cuck” in modern slang) is a term for a husband whose wife has cheated on him. In its slang usage, it doesn’t need to mean that literally, but it is often used as a synonym for “emasculated”. It’s a slang term derived from “cuckolded”.

Fog of War

” “A cuckold (“cuck” in modern slang) is a term for a husband whose wife has cheated on him. ” Actually it means a man who gets off on watching his wife with other men.

Bobby Twoshoes

What gave you the impression I needed that definition? I transitioned from discussion of the previous doctored photo of Melania cucking (literal) Trump via a segway making fun of Macron’s predilection for half naked black men to an observation about the second image that it also contained the PM of Australia who is arguably one of the biggest cucks (slang) in the world.

Traiano Welcome

So this is what the jews mean by “Peace”.

Khazarian II (merchant)

Those Palestinian houses demolished for making better and more sophisticated houses for them. That fake news is obviously racist and anti-semite :(


Israeli view on peace :”you can sb hake hands or you can draw guns. We will take, or… we will take.” Next time some Arab nation berates them for their duplicity they’ll whine again like crybabies about the lack of will on peace on the part of the Arab League. Of course all the while taking even more lands in retaliation for such “hostility” and call themselves besieged without any choice, but to violate international law and demolish Palestinians homes some more. Textbook chutzpah that never ends. Pathetic.


the palestinian genocide goes hand in hand with the jews theft of land and property. disgraceful what the world allows to go on and on and on.


time and time again the jews commit crimes against humanity and the world is quiet. the jews have long ago passed the line of inexcusable criminal behavior and there is every reason for the world to say, enough is enough and it’s time to close down the illegal occupation of palestine and send the criminal occupiers on their way, diaspora 2.0 or bury them at 6 feet,

the illegal occupation of palestine by the jews must be stopped, the naked greed shown by the jews in their continued theft of land and property the wholesale murder of palestinian women and children, the genocide of the palestinian people, the operation by the jews of concentration camp Gaza and the planned theft of the natural gas found under the seabed and which properly is palestinian to sell is enough reason to claim that the jews have forfeited the right to continue its existence or at least force them to find another place to live, say somewhere in the disunited states of A’s south east, like the sonora desert.

the world can do something about it with severe sanctions and the middle east superpowers, turkey and iran together with syria and iraq can finish off the jews in no time but they need to sit down and work out how and when. the jews plan to include uae/bahrain and eventually saudi arabia in a joint force is a sham since the minnows on the arabian peninsula is toothless and won’t be able to do anything and they are engaged as cannon fodder once the jews tries to do something about Iran. and the minnows will only see f35s of a lesser order since the jews are very particular about arming the arabs who at short notice can turn around and make the jews their prime enemy.

as said else where, iran 1.7 million sqkm and 85 million people and turkey 785000 sqkm and a population of some 83 million while the jews are say 8 million and sits on 21000 stolen sqkm threatening the neighbours with nukes while they continue to steal and murder and operate concentration camp gaza and are executing a genocide of the indigenous people, the palestinians.

America, the “MASTERBLASTER” from the movie “Thunderdome” a giant moron ridden on and directed by Twisted Jewish Dwarves …….. Why does “capitalist” America give money & weapons to SOCIALIST Israel? for decades, Israel’s ruling political parties have been Socialist or Marxist. Since Israel can afford to send rockets to the moon PLUS it has a $120+BILLION savings AND $36BILLION in US Treasuries. why is America giving Israel WELFARE checks? Why is America taking dollars from poverty level, multi-job working Americans and GIVING the money to a Nuclear POWER? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSIpAPWEJFI National Press Club 2/27/2017 Senator Chuck Schumer admits to journalist Sam Husseini that Israel has nuclear weapons. Under the Arms Export Control Act, the U.S. may not provide foreign aid to countries outside the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) absent waivers and sanctions. Despite Israel’s status outside the NPT congress passes multi-billion dollar aid packages every year, which the president signs into law. Transcript follows: CH = Chuck Schumer, SH = Sam Husseini WHY and by WHOM an American President was MURDERED “We are concerned with the disturbing effects on world stability which would accompany the development of nuclear weapons capability by Israel. I cannot imagine that the Arabs would refrain from turning to the Soviet Union for assistance if Israel were to develop nuclear weapons capability–with all the consequences this would hold. But the problem is much larger than its impact on the Middle East. Development of nuclear weapons capability by Israel would almost certainly lead other larger countries, that have so far refrained from such development, to feel that they must follow suit”- John F. Kennedy. ——— under the Symington Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and the Glenn Act, it is illegal for the US Government to send our tax money to any nation in possession of nuclear weapons technology that refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or allow IAEA inspections. Symington Amendment: Since 1976, every single penny of “aid” to Israel money has been illegal; a crime committed by the US Government against the American people. all that money the US sends to Israel is a CRIME AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. ——- The World should insist Israel live by the standards Israel demands of others. Be judged as Ye judge others. If Israel wants to be recognized, Israel must recognize the EQUALITY and HUMANITY of ALL People. Quit calling NON-Jews SHISKA, GOYIM, GENTILE. If Israel wants Hamas to ‘repudiate’ their charter, Israel must REPUDIATE their manual of hate, the TORAH, which openly proclaims that all ‘gentiles’ should be ‘Hewers of wood, and bearers of water’ …….. for Israel. Israel must recognize the Native People’s RIGHT to a Palestinian state. Israel REFUSES to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty or open It’s NUKES to inspection, Israel should have the exact same sanctions that were put on Iran

The most Genocidal Monsters in history: Jews BRAG about the murder of Egypt’s first born and celebrate every year at PASSOVER. Jews BRAG about the genocide of 75,000 Persians and celebrate it every year at PURIM. Never FORGET, Never FORGIVE, the SHOAH of 1.5MILLION Armenian Christians under the crypto-Jewish “Young Turks” “necessary for the Rothschilds’ Baku Oil. The Armenian Christians’ financial and intellectual prominence was not “good for business.”” Armenians had lived in peace thousands of years, until Jewish money wanted them out. Never FORGET, Never FORGIVE, the SHOAH of 66MILLION Christians under the Jewish Bolsheviks Never FORGET, Never FORGIVE, KATYN FOREST & the Ukrainian HOLODOMOR where the Jewish Bolsheviks slaughtered the Educated Elite CHRISTIAN Leaders. Teach about Bela Kun and his Jewish comrades who committed the Red Terror in 1918 Hungary. http://www.jrbooksonline.com/some_pics_from_cecile_tormay.htm Never FORGET, Never FORGIVE, the ongoing SHOAH of the PALESTINIANS. The sight of the “STAR of DEATH” sends a frightening and offensive message to ALL NON-Jews. “The classes and the races (RACES) too weak to master the new conditions of life must give way…. They must perish in the revolutionary holocaust.” -Karl Marx, Marx People’s Paper, April 16, 1856, Journal of the History of Idea, 1981 ………….. “RACIST HOLOCAUST” advocated by a JEW against NON-Jews years before Hitler was even born ……… Israel does not have a ‘right to exist”, because Israel is born of genocide and war crimes that ISRAEL brags about. To recognize their false claim today is to validate crimes against humanity The “STAR of DEATH” represents the ORIGINAL “Nazis”, the perpetrators and braggarts of the Humanity’s first SHOAH: FUNNY that everything they claim the nazis did is an EXACT COPY of what they brag about doing to the ORIGINAL Palestinians. Deuteronomy 7:16, 20:16 “And thou shalt consume all the peoples which the Lord thy God shall deliver unto thee; thine eye shall not pity them…thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth.”

(Joshua 6:21) For modern day reinforcement of these “rules” research/google “the KINGS TORAH” is a good start.


It’s in areas which will be under Israeli control anyway in a peace deal, nothing is wrong with it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
