Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Israel Steals 579 acres in West Bank near the Dead Sea

Israel Seizes Large Tracts of Land in West Bank, Report Says - Israel News - Haaretz
Peace Now says the seizure of 579 acres near the Dead Sea is the one of the largest land confiscation in the West Bank in recent years.
Israel has appropriated large tracts of land in the occupied West Bank near the Dead Sea and the Palestinian city of Jericho, Army Radio said on Tuesday.
Peace Now, which tracks and opposes Israeli settlement in territory captured in a 1967 war, said the reported seizure of 579 acres (234 hectares) represented the largest land confiscation in the West Bank in recent years.
The group said plans for expanding nearby Jewish settlements and building tourism and other commercial facilities in the area were already on Israel's drawing board.
Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, in a statement, called on the international community to press Israel to stop land confiscations. Most countries view Israeli settlement activity in the West Bank and East Jerusalem as illegal and an obstacle to peace.

Israel has declared 234 hectares of West Bank territory as state land, officials said Tuesday, leading a watchdog to warn of possible settlement expansion that could increase tensions with Palestinians.
COGAT, the Israeli defence ministry body responsible for implementing government policies in the Palestinian territories, said the move was taken "in accordance with the decision of the political level".

Israel has grabbed one of the largest Palestinian land plots in the occupied West Bank, an Israeli watchdog has said in a statement following the revelation by the Israeli Army Radio.
The anti-settlement NGO Peace Now said on Tuesday that the Israeli government has seized 234 hectares of land in an area south of Jericho on March 10.
The group added that plans for expanding nearby Jewish settlements and building tourism and other commercial facilities in the area were already on Israel's drawing board.
"Instead of trying to clam the situation, the government is adding fuel to the fire and sending a clear message to Palestinians, as well as to Israelis, that it has no intention to work towards peace and two states," the Israeli organisation said.
Photos of a de facto Israeli confiscation notice were tweeted by the Palestine Liberation Organization.
PressTV-Israel seizes more Palestinian land
Israel has seized a large piece of land in the occupied West Bank, a report says, as the regime in Tel Aviv continues to defy international calls to stop its expansionist policy in the Palestinian territories.
Israeli Army Radio said on Tuesday that the confiscated land is about 579 acres (234 hectares) and is located near the Dead Sea and the city of Jericho.
A campaigning group based in the occupied territories said the appropriation is the largest land confiscation in the West Bank in recent years. The Peace Now movement, which opposes Israel’s building of settlements, said Tel Aviv plans to expand settlements and build tourism and other commercial facilities in the area.
