HEBRON (Ma'an) -- The infrastructure for four illegal outposts is being constructed around the West Bank city of Hebron, a settlement affairs expert said Thursday.

In an interview with Ma'an Radio, Abed Al-Hadi Hantash said the outposts would be integrated to form a new settlement, which would be linked with Kiryat Arba, the largest settlement in the district.

Combined, the settlements would constitute a third of the city of Hebron, which is already surrounded by illegal settlements, Hantash said. The new project would confiscate a further 15 square kilometers of Palestinian land from Hebron's borders, he said, and is being funded by a Jewish society which supports settlement activity in the West Bank city.

The construction of a new school and kindergarten began earlier this week in illegal outposts in Hebron. Further, a road leading from Kiryat Arba to the Ibrahimi Mosque, which would cut through Jaber neighborhood in the Old City, was also approved. The road's construction would put Palestinians at risk of eviction, Hantash said.

Hantash said he was astonished at the Palestinian handling of the settlement issue, which focused on individual violations and failed to pay attention to the slow and systematic process by which settlements are taking over control of the heart of Hebron.

Even the language is bizarre. Obviously, if land is being 'confiscated,' it's all being done with the aid of the IDF. So in what sense is this 'illegal'? The State of Israel is doing it...ALL the settlements are illegal by any other standard. And what are the Palestinians supposed to do? If they mount a peaceful protest, it's ignored. If they resort to violence, it's 'terrorism.' I take it the general idea is that they're to peacefully stand by as they're bricked up into their ghettoes.

Actions speak louder than words. Israel is as Israel does. So much for negotiations and "all we want is peace".

The PA leadership must negotiate towards a REAL PEACE NOW,
and NOT A FANTASY of some future Palestine later!!!

They must prepare to COMPROMISE on
- borders,
- Jerusalem,
- refugees return, AND the
- Jewish state's recognition!!!!

They must do this BEFORE more settlements are completed, AND
BEFORE more Arab land is lost to Israel FOREVER!!

5) "They must do this BEFORE more settlements are completed, AND BEFORE more Arab land is lost to Israel FOREVER!!" Nothing is FOREVER. It is Israel that is most vulnerable to the passing of time without a peace agreements. Have a look at the demographics....Palestinians and Israeli Jews are almost equal in terms of numbers. Look a bit further and see the larger picture. Israel is committing suicide in slow motion by its actions.
