NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities confiscated ten dunams and restricted access to 500 dunams of private agricultural Palestinian land in the village of Qusra south of Nablus on Tuesday, an official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a PA official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that the Israeli liaison department in Nablus officially notified its Palestinian counterpart of the confiscation order.

The land, he added, is located between the village and an illegal Israeli settlement outpost called Esh Kodesh.

Daghlas added that the Israelis told their Palestinian counterparts that farmers were not allowed access to an area of more than 500 dunams around the confiscated land.

"This means," he said, "they are confiscating 500 more dunams."

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

Israel has been stealing land from the Palestinians since 1948 - but bleats to the world "all we want to do is live in peace . . ."

Why is it that people turn their backs when Israel does any illegal activity? If it was Ireland, Italy, France, et al..the world would be screaming! Why is it that USA donates to Israel, when USA cannot help their own people in cities like Detroit, which is the first large city to go bankrupt in USA?

@1) Have you ever been in school and had history as a subject? It is Christmas season. Where did the name for the holiday originate, in Mongolia, Zambia, or some 2,000 years in Israel, Jewish historical homeland? So, if Jews lived in the Holy Land for millennia, how are they stealing anybody's land? Isn't it rather the other way around?

# 3 the history I learned at school was history not hasbara. What right do non-Semitic Europeans have to take away land from Semitic Palestinians, just because those Europeans call themselves Jews? Jews claiming their "rights" is a lot of BS, which you would understand if you read more - try, eg. "The Bible Unearthed" by Israel Finkelstein and Neil Silberman. Then go to "The Thirteenth Tribe" by Arthur Koestler. And then"The Invention of the Jewish People" by Shlomo Sand. Bit more reading please
