For the last few months, I have been calling the so called Israeli illegal settlement "freeze" in the West Bank region a farce, and a total lie. I have claimed with some evidence that the Israelis have not frozen any of their settlement building during this phony "moratorium" and in fact in some cases actually accelerated their illegal settlement building. Well, here comes some more proof courtesy of www.uruknet.info, that the Moratorium on settlement building was a total and complete LIE! Here is that Uruknet article for my own readers to see for themselves:
Israeli settlement activity before and after the expiry of the 'Moratorium'
MEMO, October 4, 2010Housing starts: While there were only 5 settlement housing starts during the first half of 2010 in the rest of the West Bank according to official Israeli data, construction began on 108 units in East Jerusalem1 settlements.2
During the 'Moratorium'
During the first half of 2010, Israel continued to violate its obligations under international law and Phase 1 of the Road Map:
Active construction: As of the end of the first half of the year, some 3,009 housing units were under active construction in settlements throughout the West Bank (incl. East Jerusalem) (see Annex 2):4
In addition to being illegal under international law, such Israeli violations continue to undermine the very possibility of the two-state solution and international efforts led by the United States to create an environment conducive to the resumption of a credible and meaningful peace process.
After the 'Moratorium'
Despite the on-going construction during the 'moratorium', there has been a flurry of planned and actual settlement activity since Sunday, September 26 by Israeli officials and settlers alike:
NTS Notes: Bottom line readers... Israel lied and used their puppets in the media and western governments to perpetuate this lie. There was no "moratorium" and there never was a "freeze". This moratorium was pushed out as propaganda for the general public around the world, and the people and their own governments were played as suckers!
Again, the "freeze" and "Moratorium" for the last 10 months in illegal settlement building was a sham and a lie. The facts presented here clearly speak for themselves. Remember the old saying: "Once a liar, Always a liar!" That saying is so true for the criminal state of Israel.
