Israeli “Defense Minister” Avigdor Lieberman has approved plans for the construction of a new illegal colony in an old Palestinian vegetables market, in the heart of the Old City of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The approval of the new colony comes just a few weeks after the Israeli government authorized the construction of 31 units, in illegal colonies in the occupied West Bank.

Last month, Israeli Peace Now Movement stated that “for the first time in twenty years, Israel will build a Jewish colony in the heart of Hebron, in an area where a military base once stood” on Palestinian lands.

Hebron is one of the biggest Palestinian cities in the occupied West Bank, and is surrounded by illegal colonies, in addition to the colonies and outposts in the heart of the city.

On October 14th, Israeli daily Haaretz has reported that the government of Benjamin Netanyahu approved $6 Million to build 31 housing units for Jewish settlements in Hebron, at the site of the former Israeli army base.

The Palestinian government strongly denounced the illegal Israeli decision, and said that the approval of the new colony is a “declaration of war against the Palestinian people and their existence, in addition to violating international laws and agreements.”

The government demanded the International Community to act and stop Israel’s illegal colonialist activities, and to provide the needed protection to the Palestinian people.

Israel Hayom newspaper reported that it was approved, on Thursday, to build about 20 thousand settlement units in “Maale Adumim”, within the agreement between the Ministry of Construction and Housing and the municipality of the settlement.

Israel’s colonialist activities are illegal under International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention, in addition to violating resolutions by the United Nations Security Council, including Resolution # 2334 of 2016, which reaffirmed all relevant resolutions, including 242 (1967), 338 (1973), 446 (1979), 452 (1979), 465 (1980), 476 (1980), 478 (1980), 1397 (2002), 1515 (2003), and 1850 (2008), which have all been ignored and violated by Israel.

Lieberman Approves More Settlement Units in West Bank
Nov 1, 2018 @ 18:45


Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Lieberman approved, on Thursday morning, a plan for building more settlement units southern the occupied West Bank.

Hebrew channel 7 reported, according to Al Ray, that the plan is to build the settlement units on the old wholesale market in Hebron, claiming that the building was erected on Jewish land.

The paper claimed that the implementation of the project has been delayed for years, due to “legal obstacles”, while a judicial paper was recently developed to allow the project to start, and was approved by the Attorney General.

This comes only days after the signing of an agreement to approve the construction of tens of thousands of settlement units east of occupied Jerusalem over seven years.

Israeli occupation authorities have divided occupied West Bank and Jerusalem territory, transforming Palestinian towns and villages into separate and isolated cantons surrounded by settlements on each side, and linked by roads full of fixed and mobile military barriers.

TAKE ACTION: This is an urgent and time-sensitive situation. Please sign and share widely!

Demand the Immediate Release of Prominent Palestinian Author Susan Abulhawa from Israeli Detention!

This is an urgent and time-sensitive situation. Please sign and share widely among your networks to ensure Susan's immediate and unconditional release from Israeli detention!

Susan Abulhawa, the Palestinian novelist, has been denied entry at Tel Aviv Airport on her way to the Kalimat Palestinian Literature Festival sponsored in part by the British Council. Despite the help of a lawyer from the British Council, the US Embassy and the festival organizers who have been on hand to assist, she was been detained by border forces upon her arrival.


She is one of the most commercially successful Arab authors of all time. Abulhawa’s 2010 debut novel Mornings in Jenin, a multigenerational family epic spanning five countries and more than sixty years, looks unflinchingly at the Palestinian question – and became an international bestseller translated into twenty-eight languages. Susan was also a juror among a panel of internationally recognized human rights activists at the recent International People's Tribunal on US Colonial Crimes in Puerto Rico.

At this point, Susan is in detention awaiting a judicial decision regarding her appeal to allow her entry. Festival organizers and the British Council have stated that her participation is a cornerstone of the festival and very much needed.

We demand the immediate release of Susan Abulhawa and a guarantee that she will be able to travel and participate in the Kalimat Palestinian Literature Festival without any further incident. As a prominent Palestinian author, she deserves to be allowed to attend the Kalimat Palestinian Literature Festival in her birthright county.


Below is the contact info for the US Embassy of Israel to ask that she be allowed entry to participate. (https://www.science.co.il/Embassy.php)



In addition to signing this petition, please contact these US officials to demand they assist in assuring Abulhawa's speedy release and permission to travel to the festival.
