Not content with driving Palestinians off their land now those that remain are having to put up with the untreated waste and toxic chemicals from the illegal Israeli settlements.

Israel dumps waste on Palestinians



It is only a very short article, but there is a video.

aljazeera.net


Israeli settlements have been dumping untreated waste directly into a sewage canal that runs through the occupied West Bank, affecting Palestinian villages along its banks.

The hazard posed is compounded by the dumping of toxic chemical waste on agricultural land, with villagers reporting a rash of skin diseases and respiratory problems.


Managed to find a You-Tube link for it



What the
is the matter with these people and what in the
can we do about it?

As I have said before I have no great love for the Palestinians, but you cannot condone the Israeli actions.

Combine this horror story with all the others and this article from the BBC regarding Palestinian property being bought up at inflated prices, then who the hell knows where this will all lead.

all's fair in love and war. is anyone suprised? hell if it works, the people who came up with the idea will be championed by future generations. If they cant stop playing make believe and get together and talk, they get what they get. Thats why the "godless" Soviets could listen to reason

Of what relevance is that remark to the thread? It has nothing to do with the Israelis getting rid of their sewage on to Palestinians.

Although slightly off topic perhaps you should enlighten yourself that Israeli forces also used Palestinians as a human shield, and the use of innocent civilians as a shield is quite prevalent.


Human Rights Watch says that the Israel Defense Forces used Palestinian civilians as human shields during the 2002 Battle of Jenin.


Source Wikipedia

And 20 July 2006: Israeli Soldiers use civilians as Human Shields in Beit Hanun

[edit]@LarryLove. This gives you some insight into HAMAS' use of human shields.


The UN announcement that 51 civilians have died in the conflict in Gaza must be understood in the context of Hamas's declared ideology to use civilians as human shields for Hamas fighters. Indeed, Hamas continues to emphasize and promote the religious ideology that death for Allah is an ideal to be actively pursued.


This is not quite the same as the Israeli use of Palestinians as a shield which is just cowardice.
