Segregating the evening commute to the West BankMichael Schaeffer Omer-Man - +972 - Jews and Palestinians who commute from the West Bank to work in central Israel each day will soon ride separate buses home.

Former UK Minister: a wicked cocktail of occupation and illegality akin to apartheid South Africa Nicholas Watt - The Guardian - Sir Alan Duncan, Former Tory minister, delivered one of the strongest attacks on the Netanyahu government by a front line UK politician: “Occupation, annexation, illegality, negligence, complicity: this is a wicked cocktail which brings shame to the government of Israel. It would appear that on the West Bank the rule of international law has been shelved. This illegal construction and habitation is theft, it is annexation, it is a land grab – it is any expression that accurately describes the encroachment which takes from someone else something that is not rightfully owned by the taker. As such it should be called what it is, and not by some euphemistic soft alternative." 14/10/2014

EU mulls `blacklisting` settlers convicted of crimes Reuters/Y-net - European diplomats consider new measures in response to `high level of frustration` over West Bank settlement enterprise. A senior official said that a list of "Israeli settlers who have been convicted of crimes" has been drawn up and "all paperwork done", though the decision to ban them from entering the EU was not yet taken. Such a measure would only affect directly some 100 to 200 people, and be complicated to enforce since some of them have European passports themselves. However, "it would send a strong message that the EU means business". ak 14/10/2014

Extremist settler Moshe Feiglin, Likud MK, allowed to invade Al Aqsa CompoundSaeb Erakat - PLO Negotiations Aairs Department - As instructed by The Israeli Government, Israeli Police in Occupied East Jerusalem allowed settler Moshe Feiglin - Likud Knesset Member living in the illegal settlement of Karnei Shomron - to invade Al Aqsa compound, the third holiest site in Islam and a symbol for all Palestinians, in company with other Israeli extremists. This is an extremely provocative action, especially considering Feiglin`s inflammatory statements such as his call during the recent bombings to evict Palestinians from Gaza and settle Jews in their place, and such statements as "You can`t teach a monkey to speak and you can`t teach an Arab to be democratic. You`re dealing with a culture of thieves and robbers. Muhammad, their prophet, was a robber and a killer and a liar." ak14/10/2014

EU Bans Israeli Dairy Products made in Occupied West Bank Settlements from JanuaryGianluca Mezzofiore - International Business Times - The EU ban on settlement-produced dairy products will take place from January 2015. The Israeli agricultural ministry informed dairy factories built beyond the pre-1967 Green Line, including in the unilaterally annexed Golan Heights and East Jerusalem, that "it will no longer be possible to export to Europe dairy products produced over the Green Line, either directly or indirectly". The ban on dairy products, along with all other animal products such as eggs and poultry, was announced in August and based on the EU`s refusal to recognize Israel`s claims to areas over the pre-1967 lines. Agriculture Ministry spokesman Amnon Lieberman said most settlement dairy products have been directed to the local Israeli market only a small part of it, mainly powdered milk, will be effected by the closing of the European exports. ak 14/10/2014
