Israel ‘to legalize outposts on private Palestinian land’

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Tuesday the establishment of a new committee charged with finding ways to legalise settlement outposts built on private Palestinian land.

A statement from the premier’s office said he had “decided to form a committee to examine policy tools and principles of action, relating to construction with unregulated status in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank).

“The committee will formulate recommendations for action on issues such as those that arise in various petitions,” the statement said.

The decision to set up a task force was taken after heavy pressure from the settler lobby and right-wing activists following the demolition in early September of three structures in the Migron outpost near Ramallah.

Further demolitions in another four outposts are expected to take place by the year’s end.

At a meeting of ministers from Netanyahu’s Likud party on Sunday, Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat said the imminent demolition of some 160 settler homes was “not reasonable,” and called for a team to “examine the issue and offer solutions,” her office said.

“Our job is not to be bulldozers and demolish,” Livnat told the meeting.

Following her request, Netanyahu ordered cabinet secretary Zvi Hauser to deal with the issue, it said.

The decision to demolish Migron and other outposts built on private Palestinian land was taken in February when Netanyahu and three other ministers met Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein.

At the meeting, they agreed to raze a number of outposts built on private land while at the same time working to retroactively legalise any illegal construction in both settlements and outposts built on state land.

According to a timetable submitted to the High Court, the government was to have demolished the Givat Asam outpost by the end of the year, as well as parts of three others — Givat HaRoeh, Ramat Gilad and Bnei Adam.

The issue of construction on private Palestinian land has been the subject of lengthy court battles, one of which saw the Supreme Court order the government in August to raze Migron by the end of March 2012.

Hagit Ofran, who works with the Israeli settlement watchdog Peace Now, said 70 outposts were built either partly or completely on private Palestinian land.

Ofran said she was “surprised” by the decision to set up a task force, which was most probably a move to “buy time” and stave off the upcoming round of outpost demolitions.

“I find it very hard to believe that they can get away with legalising such a land grab,” she said.

“What they might be able to do is buy time. Now they have deadlines because of all the (legal) petitions. If they can postpone this until the elections, they will.”

Danny Dayan, head of the Yesha Council of settlers, warned that if the demolitions went ahead, it would leave nearly 1,000 people homeless.

“The duty of the government, which is in the nationalist camp, is to stop this approaching demolition campaign which will throw us into storm, the end of which no-one can predict,” he said in a statement.

Israel considers settlement outposts built in the West Bank without government approval to be illegal, and often sends security personnel to demolish them. They usually consist of little more than a few trailers.

The international community considers all settlements built in the occupied West Bank, including annexed Arab east Jerusalem, to be illegal.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
