Palestinians are left less than 10% of land over which they partially control subject to israeli military occupation, while the occupation’s full control will extend to 90% of Palestinian land. This is the latest stage of the ongoing Nakba and the most aggressive plan since the 1967 Naksa to steal Palestinian land and expand illegal israeli settlements. It is further institutionalization of genocide.

“The Israeli annexation is completely illegal under international law and is an act of war against the Palestinian people whose land has been illegally occupied by Israeli troops and settlements over more than five decades,” stated the Communist Party. “The annexation is the main point in the Trump-Netanyahu ‘Deal of the Century,’ which has been rejected out of hand by the Palestinian people and by governments around the world that recognize it a provocation, an act of war and genocide.”

Why provoke a media and political relations’ storm by making public the controversial West Bank annexation plan when that process can be carried forward in a gradual, step by step manner, ‘in the dark’, far from the damning eye of international condemnation? Netanyahu could still, for whatever reasons, decide it is in his interest to create another political firestorm. It might, however, be more politically expedient to keep his audience guessing as facts on the ground roll forward like tank treads. Greater Israel has come a long way over the decades using this very technique. Like the proverbial frog in its pot on the stove, by the time the water is boiling it’ll be too late to hop out.
When God forges the destiny of a devout people, it is carried forth with zeal. Whether that god is a secular or religious deity, fervent believers will remove the obstacles impeding their progress even if they are people. They will be conveniently demoted from “human” to something like “merciless Indian savages” (US Declaration of Independence) those relics of the unsaved world who threatened to block the advance of civilization across the North American continent.
Palestinians may yet prove fortunate that their history is unfolding on such a public stage and under the often unblinking eyes of media and video surveillance. Native Americans had no such luck, a fact that cost them approximately one hundred million lives over a period of 400 years. The United States bloomed out of the bloody ground of genocide. Greater Israel has had to find more creative ways to eliminate a people without their collective physical death.

Annexation, then, is nothing new. “Hundreds of Indigenous nations were consumed by [a] process of relentless westward expansion,” explain historians Nick Estes (Lower Brule Sioux) and Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz. “This is a core feature of settler colonialism,” they continue, “not just the elimination of the Native, but also the naturalization of unnatural settler states built on the annexation of Indigenous land and the genocide of Indigenous people,” a process that could explain, too, Israel’s 72-year Occupation of the land and Indigenous people of Palestine.

Though Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has for now shelved plans to annex large parts of the occupied West Bank, the delay should not disguise that the endeavor is a consequence of the ongoing apartheid rule, dispossession and genocide of the Palestinian people.

People Before Profit unequivocally condemns the Israeli Apartheid state’s proposed annexation of 30% of the Palestinian West Bank.
This latest act of Zionist violence and oppression against the Palestinian people has clearly been given the green light by the US and President Trump in his misnamed ‘peace plan’ proclaimed earlier this year. It marks a significant escalation in the ongoing genocidal policy of occupation and ethnic cleansing inaugurated by Israel in the Nakba of 1948.

The ISL calls on the broadest unity to mobilize against this new attack on the Palestinian people by the genocidal state of Israel. At the same time that we call for the broadest unity of action to stop the gendarme, we are convinced that there will be no solution for the Palestinian people without the dismantling of that genocidal imperial enclave that is the state of Israel. A new democratic, secular and non-racist state is needed, in which Palestinians can coexist in peace with the peoples who want to inhabit those territories.

Washington continued to patronise Israel encouraging its usurpation of more Arab land, creating more illegal settlements, displacing more Palestinians and ruthlessly pursuing its policy of apartheid and acting in defiance of international law and UN resolutions. In reward for its policy of genocide and international law violation, Washington provides it annual assistance of more than $3 billion.

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) is appalled by the continued plan of Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, to proceed with the annexation of Occupied Palestine in the West Bank and Jordan Valley, which was set to commence today, 1 July 2020… This intended action translates to a process of ethnic cleansing, through a slow genocide of the Palestinian people located in these areas.

The fact that the Israeli occupation systematically deprives Palestinians in the Jordan Valley of their right to education creates an entire generation ignorant of their history and cultural identity. Ruining Palestinians’ cultural identity and attempting to erase the collective memory that connects them as a people with other Palestinians is another way, in which Zionism aims to eliminate the native Palestinian people. This amounts to a policy called ‘cultural genocide’. The Right to Education Campaign aims to create facts on the ground to save Palestinians’ cultural identity from obliteration.
