Not one single mention that settlements are illegal as they violate international law.
Fuck you BBC and your pro-Israel bullshit and fuck you Israel for continuing to steal Palestinian land.
I thought that the part about them being illegal was just assumed.
The general public have no idea that these settlements are illegal. I’m sure most people who read this article don’t even know that Israel is building on stolen Palestinian land.
Heck, the general public don’t even know that Palestine isn’t a country.
Regardless, the settlements being illegal should be one of the main talking points and should always be one of the first things that are mentioned. It should be in the headline, for starters.
You’re right about the headline, it should be made clear that these (and virtually all) settlements are illegal.
Maybe it’s just me and my friends, but when I hear about Israel doing something like this, I just assume it’s in violation of some law and/or UN Resolution.
Ninth paragraph: "About 500,000 Jews live in more than 100 settlements built since the occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem. The settlements are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this.”
And that’s why you don’t take a screenshot of a story without linking to the story.
