Heroism in a Vanishing Landscape ELLEN CANTAROW - Counterpunch - The rule of law exists to protect the victims of war and occupation by imposing sanctions and responsibilities on invaders. It is not to be stretched for the convenience of the US at Guantanamo, Russia in Chechnya, Israel in Gaza, or in East Jerusalem. Under the law East Jerusalem and all the Arab homes it contains are part of the occupied West Bank. Despite endless palm-greasing, casuist apologetics, semantic distortions and brute force, Israel’s responsibilities towards the territories it occupies remain articulated in the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949 and Chapter 5 of the 1907 Hague Convention IV. Occupying states are forbidden to seize the land and property of those they occupy, and forbidden to settle their citizens on occupied soil. 12/11/2009

With restraint like this... Akiva Eldar - Haaretz - "The Web site of the settlement has detailed plans for every plot. The construction company promises that the first semi-detached houses of the 100 housing units will be handed over to the buyers in eight months` time." 11/11/2009
