Israeli Military Order Sets Up Mass Expulsion of Palestinians From West Bank

Israeli Military Order Sets Up Mass Expulsion of Palestinians From West Bank | Virtually any Palestinian could be deported as an ‘infiltrator’

Human rights groups are expressing serious concern tonight following news that the Israeli military has issued new regulations regarding the expulsion of “infiltrators” from the occupied West Bank.

Under the new regulations, any Palestinian, including those born in the West Bank or the Gaza Strip, could be classified as an “infiltrator” if they don’t have explicit permission from the Israeli military to reside in the territory.

This appears designed to set up for immediate deportation tens of thousands of Gazans, but analysts warn that even more troubling is that the ambiguous new definition of “infiltrator” is so broad that it could cover virtually every Palestinian.

Traditionally, people born in the West Bank have not had to seek explicit permission from the military to remain there, and it is not even clear, according to Israeli media, that the military is offering a residency permit which it would consider acceptable under the rules.

The Palestinian Authority condemned the announcement as “very dangerous,” and vowed to oppose the decision. The Palestinian Authority has sought to establish an independent state in a portion of the West Bank.

  • Does it never end? The dispossession of the Palestinians..?? Is it this regime that "we" trust with the deadliest weapons known to man.. Isn't it time to make America's No.1 Welfare Queen show us what she is using for protection that she bought with all the money she got from US..!!??

      I wonder what would happen in this country if the government decided that all white, non Hispanic Americans had no further claim to the land that they had been living on for a couple of centuries and the Government authority had decreed that they must relinquish their homes, properties and lands to the government to disburse same to the multicultural hordes of immigrants from third world armpits that now reside here?

      Would we allow the military bulldozers to come in and level our homes in order to accomodate new settler multi family dwelling units? The bulldozing of our crops and orchards for the construction of multi family immigrant dwellings?

      Think about it!

  • Not much is going to happen right away, but Israel is making preparations for the future. When war with Iran comes, and the nukes are flying, Israel will be able to expel all of the Palestinians, probably to the scorched earth of southern Lebanon.

  • this is only going to escalate thing to the point of war, were can they go… put every palestinian in to the gaza prison. syria and jordan have plently already with out all the iraqi refugees. or maybe they will just go to prison labor camps?

  • anti_republocrat

    Well, if Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt refuse to accept them, the Israelis will simply have to implement a more final solution. It's hard to imagine even the US signing off on it, but then I've thought that before.

    Humanitarian ethnic cleansing, maybe bibi or his FM get Nobel "peace" prize this year?

    • liberal

      Not humanitarian, of course, but definitely "slow". That's been the entire Israeli plan from the beginning, decades ago.

      IMHO those of us opposed to Israel's actions and policies (and the US involvement in the mess) should stress the words "ethnic cleansing." That's exactly the monstrous thing that it is.

  • UtiopiaNow

    This is beyond belief … Israel has not one shred of credibility or decency left.

    How can they do this to ANY human beings? Especially when there is no need too. Breathtaking ignorance & supremacism or what?

    Is there no morality left in this nation and it's "supporters"?

  • Lloyd G.

    Netanyahu is showing Obama who's boss.

    We here in the US need to invade Israel Immediately. Being a realist this will ultimately culminate into a third world war. If the Israelis completely expel all the Palestinians out of Palestine like it says so in their Conspiracy books, what is to happen to the Palestinians?

    That's my question. Nothing good will come of this. That is obvious.

    • s-man

      That's what Israel's "samson option" is for. You think those nukes are not pointed at the US? Israel will take the world down with her, like a child in a temper tantrum. Those people deserve to live in fear of terrorism for the rest of their days. And we here in America are importing their lifestyle. When are Americans in general going to realize that this fatal attraction relationship with Israel is the cause of almost ALL our war and terrorism problems.

    Was Israel Ever Legitimate? NO! http://www.criminalstate.com/2010/04/was-israel-e
    The history of Israel as a geopolitical fraud will fill entire libraries as those defrauded marvel at how so few deceived so many for so long. Those duped include many naive Jews who—even now—identify their interests with this extremist enclave.

    Israeli leaders are wrong to worry about “de-legitimization”. They are right to fear that a long-deceived public is fast realizing that Israel’s founding was key to an ongoing deception.

    The Invention of the Jewish People did not begin with Shlomo Sand’s 2009 bestseller by that title. There was no Exile says this Jewish scholar. Nor was there an Exodus. So how could there be a Return, the core premise of Israeli statehood?

    The Most Monstrous MEME in All History http://www.incogman.wordpress.com/2009/04/17/the-
    First off, let’s make this one thing perfectly clear. When you see the word “Jew” around here, technically I mean “Talmudic Khazars”. Sound complicated? Yeah, it does, but it shouldn’t. These people use the confusion about all this on Whites to hide themselves behind.

    The majority of "Jews" in the US and Israel, are a non-Semitic people, a Mongol/Turkish group called the Khazars of the Caspian Sea area, who long ago converted to Judaism. Eventually, to get rid of them, Christian Russia moved them into an area of southern Poland and Russia called the Pale of Settlement. Some of them migrated into Germany (which accounts for the German in the Yiddish language) and other Eastern European areas like Hungary and Romania. From these places, they moved on to the USA and we now see how that’s turned out for this country.

    I stole IDF documents to expose West Bank war crimes, Anat Kam says http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1162458.html
    Classified documents reveal that the Israel Defense Forces had committed war crimes in the West Bank.

    The state has decided to prosecute Kam for the most serious crimes of espionage: passing on classified information with the intent of harming state security, charges which carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.

    Netanyahu: Iran wants to destroy Israel and the world remains silent
    Memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu: the "big lie" technique won't work any more, Bibi – get over it!

    1. Iran's leadership never said that they would remove the Jewish state from the earth; that's a completely idiotic mistranslation from Farsi, and you know it.

    2. Iran is a signatory to the NNPT (unlike Israel), and therefore must submit to its nuclear program being inspected consistently by the IAEA.

    4. So far, there has been zero reporting of any nuclear materials gone missing, or enrichment beyond what is necessary to fuel a power plant.

    5. The Iranian leadership may be many things, but it is not stupid. Iran hasn't initiated a war in two hundred years.

    6. They understand that any military action against Israel will result its being bombed out of existence by the US.

    7. Even if they are planning to develop a bomb (which is still very doubtful), who can blame them, after the magnificent object lesson the US gave Iran and the world by invading a nation which did not have a nuclear deterrent, that nation having been Iraq?

    • Keith

      Number 6 is really a shame. The whole world is willing to destroy Israel. But the cowardice of the Americans to arrest their leaders and RICO act all the Dual citizens of Israel is ruining the whole geopolitical, as well as the socioeconomic stage. If the US was a foe of Israel like they are for example with North Korea, then Iran could handle 'em. The whole Middle east could handle them!

    The time for Palestine to declare itself is NOW.
