Palestinians barred from Dead Sea beaches to 'appease Israeli settlers'


www.independent.co.uk

Palestinians are being regularly and illegally barred from reaching Dead Sea beaches in the occupied West Bank, according to a Supreme Court petition filed by Israel's leading civil rights organisation.

It boggles my mind when anyone denies another person from visiting a certain place on this planet.

Nobody owns land. Sure on paper they do. Just like oil, nobody owns the oil. Its on the earth, in fact everyone holds a piece of it, yet a few decided they own it all and sell it back to us for a price.

Once we get over this ownership phase of life, I think things will start to get better.

and it would be a shame to spoil such a nice area

Unfortunately, this type of thing is not unusual in the Occupied West Bank. Israeli settlers are well known for going crazy and being violent in an attempt to bully Palestinians out of their land.

Some examples:








This one contains foul language:
