Pushes Netanyahu to Legalize All Settlements

by Jason Ditz

Israel’s Levy Panel has added more fuel to the fire over the occupation of the West Bank, announcing today that they don’t consider it an occupation at all, arguing that it has been occupied so long that it is just de facto Israeli now.

Which, coupled with their call to legalize all settlements inside the West Bank, was met by loud cheers by the settler movement, but seemingly creates other, much more difficult problems for the Netanyahu government, should they go along with this argument.
