EU ministers look to Israeli grab of Palestinian farmland
EU Observer ^ | 13.01.12 @ 09:24 | Andrew Rettman

EU countries are preparing to criticize Israel on "forced transfer" of Palestinians out of the most fertile farmland in the occupied West Bank. …

Area C covers 62 percent of the occupied West Bank and was designated by the Oslo Accords in the 1990s as being under full Israeli civilian and military control.

The EU heads of mission report—seen by EUobserver—notes that between 200,000 and 320,000 Palestinians used to live in the Jordan Valley, most of which is in Area C, in 1967, but demolition of Palestinian homes and prevention of new buildings has seen the number drop to 56,000.

In a similar period, the Jewish population in Area C has grown from 1,200 to 310,000.

"The window for a two-state solution is rapidly closing with the continued expansion of Israeli settlements and access restrictions for Palestinians in Area C [which] compromises crucial natural resources and land for the future demographic and economic growth of a viable Palestinian state," the text says.

It adds that Israeli policy amounts to "forced transfer of the native population" from its "most fertile and resource rich land." …

Area C is a novelty in terms of EU policy after previous EU heads of mission reports in Israel concentrated on settlement activity in occupied East Jerusalem. The new twist was a Swedish initiative. …

If we were calling a spade, an Arab, wouldn’t that replace the misnomer “Palestinians”?

“...he most fertile farmland in the occupied West Bank...”

This was wasteland, prior to 1878, which the Jewish people subsequently paid dearly for, and turned into fertile farmland.

And if Israel is forced to leave, it will become a wasteland again.

The Jews gave those who call themselves Palestians green houses which grew eveything from anywhere in the world. Each greenhouse was climatized according to it’s fruit or vegetable. The Palestians destroyed all of them. This brings a question, the Jews cleared and fertilized this precious fertile land...did the palestians do anything with it?

I don’t think they can give the Palies land, the muslims from arab lands are taking over EU countries and outbreeding the caucasians.

Thanks Olog-hai. We have the Swedes to thank for this.
