Habima to travel to Kiryat Arba, fans protestRan Boker - Ynet - A post protesting its showing in Kiryat Arba, which received hundreds of "likes" and dozens of "shares" on social media site Facebook, read, "There are few places more loathsome than that in our area. I suggest that the actors and crewmembers arrive a bit beforehand and tour Meir Kahane Park, which also includes the grave of Baruch Goldstein." The Habima Theatre management responded that, as the national theater of the state of Israel, it (...) condemns any attempt to culturally boycott any place where Israeli citizens live."

Why Israeli occupation of the West Bank is reversible Akiva Eldar - Al-Monitor "While it seems that the heart of the Israeli people is indeed on the right, at least according to opinion polls, its feet are planted deep on the left side of the map of the land of Israel. The Central Bureau of Statistics` numbers show that there is indeed a way back from the occupation and that the two-state solution is not dead; the settler population in Judea and Samaria is no more than 4.4% of the "Israeli people" (the Jewish population) and only 13% of the population of the West Bank. This is the case after 50 years of efforts to create irreversible facts in the territories, the investment of tens of billions of shekels in infrastructure and incentives, and untold damage to Israel`s international stature. What happened to the 1977 promise made by then-Agriculture Minister Ariel Sharon (later prime minister), who was appointed that year as chairman of the ministerial committee for settlement issues, that within a decade a million Jews would live in Judea and Samaria?" ca 14/10/2016

Israel Settlement Activity Quadrupled Over Past Year Jason Ditz - Antiwar.com (based on latest report from settlement watchdog group Peace Now) - Perhaps even more disturbing than the actual numbers is where the construction is taking place, as large amounts of the construction is happening deep in Palestinian territory, in places like Ariel, settlements that are far beyond the borders of any expected negotiated two-state solution.

West Bank Settlers Prepare for Clash, With Israeli GovernmentISABEL KERSHNER - New York Times "A flagship of the settler enterprise, Amona is becoming a test of how far Israel’s right-wing government will go to avoid a clash with its constituency and how vested it is in more than 100 outposts built without authorization across the West Bank. It is forcing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to balance the demands of his conservative coalition partners, the state’s judicial authorities and world leaders, who overwhelmingly view the settlements as violations of international law." ca7/10/2016

PLO condemns Israel`s plans to construct new settlement for Amona evacueesMa`an - "The building of the new settlement has been seen as direct resistance to the Israeli Supreme Court ruling in 2008 which ordered Amona`s demolition after Palestinians from neighboring villages -- with the support of Israeli human rights organization Yesh Din -- successfully petitioned the court to remove the outpost." - id5/10/2016

Resource: Fact-checking Israel`s most stubborn illegal outpostYossi Gurvitz - +972 "The state will ask the High Court to, once again, delay the demolition of Amona. Here are a few myths surrounding one of the most stubborn outposts in the West Bank." ca14/10/2016

Soldiers harass journalists during trip to Jordan ValleyWafa - Journalists on a tour organised by the Palestinian Ministry of Information were stopped for three hours by Israeli soldiers. They were forbidden to use the main road to their destination, the Palestinian community of Ein Sakout in the Jordan Valley. Instead, the soldiers directed them to a very rough side road. When the journalists persisted, arrived at Ein Sakout and started talking to inhabitants, the soldiers came again and forced them to leave. Recently, an Israeli court ruled that 6500 dunums of land in this area, taken over by settlers, should be returned to their Palestinian owners. So far, however, the Israeli authorities failed to implement the court decision. [ak] 4/10/2016

Settlers pump wastewater into Salfit’s olive fieldsPalestinian Information Center - “The industrial refuse from Israeli factories and the wastewater from the neighboring settlements have increased. Our crops are unsafe to eat and our livestock are threatened. Children are suffering from skin and stomach illnesses. The smell is foul and we have a problem with insects. Most of the dumping of waste is deliberate.” [bz] 4/10/2016
