More settlements to be built in the occupied territories
The day after the UN voted to upgrade the status of Palestine, Israel announces 3,000 more housing units to be built on occupied Palestinian territory.
Israel shows utter contempt for the will of the international community yet again, and the UK’s response is to tell their ambassador that they are very naughty boys! (‘UK government warns Israel over settlements‘; BBC News, 3 December 2012)
Our government still doesn’t seem to understand that words mean nothing to Israel. We need strong, effective and internationally co-ordinated sanctions to stop this obscenity.
Israel prevents building materials and other essential supplies from getting into Gaza. We should respond in kind.
