The Occupation Expansion

No, not the "occupation" practiced by Israel.

The "occupation" practiced by Arabs.

See this news item:

The Israeli District Committee for Planning and Building declared its intention to build a new settlement road, in Haifa in occupied territories, that links between Fureidis and Zichron Yaaqub junctions with the nearby settlement of Nkhcollym [? Nachsholim].   Palestinian farmers in that area expressed their dissatisfaction with the new Israeli settlement project especially that hundreds of dunums of their land will be confiscated.

The Israeli new scheme is made to facilitate the movement of settlers living in Nhacollym and Dore settlements. The project area is estimated at 1275 dunums where hundreds of agricultural dunums will be confiscated.  Residents in that area rely on agriculture for their livelihood.

Where exactly is that piece of territory?

Wait.  Isn't that pre-1967 Israel?

All of Israel is "occupied"?

Do you think the European Union will say something?

After all, this is 'occupation expansion' commited by ... Arabs.  Shouldn't that bother all right-thinking persons?

Does this confirm that a majority of Arabs, claiming to be "Palestinians", really intend that no where in the Middle East is their room for Israel, Israel as the geo-political realization of the Jewish national ethos?



Itamar of PalWatch writes (and I add gladly):

Calling Israel "occupied" and building in Israel "settlements" is also official PA language. 2 recent examples:“Jenin District Governor Talal Dweikat… called on Palestinian businessmen and investors – especially those from Palestine occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel) – to invest in the Jenin district.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 13, 2013]

"... the Netanyahu government has not decided to freeze settlement, but has transferred it to the Negev. " [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - May 8, 2013 ]

More examples, a fraction of those we come across, here:
