Realities of occupation

In Israel-Palestine, Middle East on November 4, 2008 at 8:00 pm

Chris Davies – guardian.co.uk: “Palestine, after 40 years of Israeli military occupation, is being coldly and cynically dismembered. The European Commission reports that the population of the settlements has grown by 5% since January alone. Military fortifications, impassable fences, and new connecting roads are separating Palestinian communities and turning them into bantustans (but even white South Africans never forbade blacks from using the roads). A Soviet-style system of identity passes restricts movement and prevents families from meeting.”
