- Israel Has a ‘Hands-Off’ Approach with Illegal Settlers, Not with the Palestinians

Settler violence against Palestinians has escalated during Israel’s “hands-off” approach in the occupied West Bank, according to Haaretz. The Israeli newspaper has reported that violence by Jews against Palestinians has risen dramatically in the past two years, with officials referring to a “permissive atmosphere” for extremists in the area. Data from the Israeli security ministry confirms this increase.
Moreover, the Israeli intelligence agencies warned in a recent session with the government and security officials of an increase in settler crimes and attacks against Palestinians. The settlers’ storming of Al-Mufkara village, south of Hebron, where they beat up Palestinian residents, was one of the latest of these brutal crimes carried out under the protection of Israeli soldiers, as eyewitnesses confirmed to Anadolu.
Current Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is known to be a right-wing settler in terms of his thoughts and ideology. He believes in Greater Israel, which includes all of historic Palestine from the River Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea, and he was head of the Yesha Council for settlements, so we do not expect anything from him. Bennett rejects the establishment of a Palestinian state, refuses to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and saw no reason to refer to the conflict with the Palestinians in his recent speech at the UN General Assembly. In order for his heterogeneous government to survive — it does not have a comfortable majority — Bennett needs the support of settler leaders, or at least needs to stay in their good books. He cares little that the International Criminal Court is opening an investigation into the crimes committed by the occupation state in the Palestinian territories.

According to a government official quoted by the Times of Israel, despite the change of the administration in Washington, Israel’s illegal settlement construction policies will remain largely unchanged. He said that Bennett’s government will work according to the understandings reached by his predecessor Benjamin Netanyahu and former US President Donald Trump, whose administration allowed Israel to continue settlement construction across the West Bank as long as this did not extend to new settlement outposts. This agreement meant a sharp increase in settlement construction during the Trump era; the number of projects approved beyond the Green (1949 Armistice) Line more than doubled, compared with the number during President Barack Obama’s second term.
Despite news of Bennett’s promise during his recent meeting with US President Joe Biden not to annex any of the West Bank, he is still following Netanyahu’s approach, and possibly at a more extreme pace. His government is pursuing the same policy based on settlement expansion and the creation of new facts on the ground. The occupation state and its bulldozers are working around the clock in the service of the Judaisation settlement project in the West Bank, including Jerusalem, through the construction of settler-only bypass roads.
- Modern Ashkenazi Khazars (90+% of modern Jewry) are NOT the Jews of the Bible! Ashkenaz is not from the tribe of Shem ie. not semitic! They cannot be the descendents of Jacob/Israel who are from Shem!
Genesis 10:1-3 (New King James Version)
Nations Descended from Noah
1 Now this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And sons were born to them after the flood. 2 The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras. 3 The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz, Riphath,[a] and Togarmah.
