Washington – Zainab Ibrahim

Emma Bryan, editor-in-chief of news releases for the American “Real News” network, and a political science researcher at the JBI Institute for Human Rights, confirmed that the accumulated balance of dead and victims among teenagers and children in refugee camps in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and a number of separate places in Palestinian villages and camps, is increasing. Day after day in the midst of the repressive campaigns carried out by the occupation forces in the West Bank, and every two days the West Bank turns into a funeral scene into a volcano of suppressed anger that wanted to explode with a new uprising that destroys everything in the Palestinian scene upside down with the continuous violation of the sanctity of life and the continuation of Killing teenagers, children and women.

increased violence

Emma Brian says that the numbers of victims and dead women and children, and nearly 200 dead and hundreds of injured since last year until now, make the violent and bloody atmosphere bring to mind the victims of the second intifada in 2004, but even outnumber them so far for the events that also took place in 2006 in waves of more Violence has been witnessed in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since the current year until recent days, in addition to what is happening in terms of new legal legislation, practices and violations against prisoners, numerous repressive campaigns by Israeli forces in the camps, involvement in a number of new settlement practices, and a hard-line and extremist right-wing political line in the Israeli scene. The scenario now we see taking the West Bank into another siege using the same repressive mechanisms aimed at separating the Palestinians from their families and relatives by imposing the non-entry of foreigners into the West Bank, in addition to the continuous repressive practices, in light of attempts to isolate what is going on inside the Palestinians and in the West Bank in particular from society. Civil and international affairs, and in front of this, the Israeli army is engaged in a war of renewed media public relations by announcing investigations into the killing of a father. A family of four children is in an altercation with Israeli forces and he receives a bullet that kills him while he is driving his taxi. These are the same drafts that we see for the Israeli army to announce that it adheres to the utmost restraint and conducts investigations into the killings of children, women and journalists, but the reality created by severe restrictions and deprivation The Palestinians are deprived of their homeland, identity, freedom of movement, separation of families, denial of their right to freedom, expression and demonstration, restriction of their lives through espionage, monitoring the movement of activists, unlawfully declaring civil organizations terrorist, and plotting against the Palestinian tragedy within the international scene, despite the condemnation of the United Nations, the European Union, and the US State Department. For those policies that Israel is expanding and will lead to a new blockade on the West Bank, which will make us face a new Gaza tragedy in scenarios that will not be in the interest of anyone, especially the peace process in the future.

aggressive policies

-

And Emma Brian, a media expert and American academic, continued in her statements to Al-Sharq: We cannot ignore the expansion of settlement outposts, Judaization through settlements and settlements, and the repressive and aggressive security pressure exerted by the Israeli forces at such a high pace since last year in the West Bank, in light of attempts to destroy Societal and cultural ties, kinship ties, encroachment on religious sanctities and distorting the image around them with lies and religious marches under ideological claims, and emptying the Palestinian arena, as is happening in the West Bank, of elites capable of adopting influential societal roles to strike the Palestinian link with origin, history, with relatives, and even with the future. There is a desire to isolate The entire West Bank from the outside world, as happened in the besieged Gaza Strip for more than 15 years, according to the statement issued by the Human Rights Watch, which made it clear that Israel has difficulty spending time in the West Bank, and is taking more steps to make the West Bank like Gaza, where people live Two million Palestinians have effectively been isolated from the outside world for more than 15 years. These policies are designed to weaken social ties. the social, cultural, and intellectual well-being that the Palestinians are trying to maintain with the outside world; The Gaza Strip is also under a strict air, land and sea blockade imposed by Israel since 2007.

punitive measures

Emma Bryan, a political science researcher at the JBI Institute for Human Rights, concluded her remarks by saying: Among the most controversial new measures are those related to regulating the entry of foreigners into the West Bank to join their Palestinian spouses, and preventing human rights activists from interacting with the occupied population, or the harsh separation of families, in addition to that the Israeli authorities have long made it difficult for foreigners to teach, study, volunteer, work, or live in the West Bank, and that these new regulations legalize and even tighten already long-standing Israeli restrictions; Whereas, according to the new rules, the Israeli authorities can reject requests for family reunification if they see that they violate the policy of the political level, which necessitates the need for international action in order to put pressure on Israel regarding these practices, especially since continuing repression in this way makes nations The United Nations requires dealing with the Palestinian cause and what is happening against the Palestinians according to what is happening in terms of racial discrimination and continuous persecution against the Palestinians, and this deliberate approach that is currently taking place in the West Bank seeks to isolate the Palestinian civil society completely from the international community and that those campaigns that we see aim to punish the Palestinians who are trying Searching for an investigation of legal accountability for the gross Israeli violations in the International Criminal Court, and without any doubt besides the gross attacks being committed against Palestinian civil rights, and the targeting of Palestinians, especially activists and workers in the civil and human rights field, there is definitely a need for American action in order to put pressure on Israel is involved in these practices, and there is indeed a need for human rights associations, international and international institutions, and the Congress to continue in order to a To put pressure on Israel, and to open extensive investigations regarding Israel’s violation of norms related to human rights and the need to discuss the Israeli situation in the national security budget and to review any future arms deals offered to Israel due to its gross violations of human rights by the US Congress in discussing new legislation and using that among the important pressure cards in In this regard, and raising all the humanitarian and civil files in which Israel has been involved, whether with its violations in Palestine or its violation of many norms with regard to international espionage and harassment of civil organizations and the many unspoken violations in which the Israeli government has been involved, there is certainly room for review, detection and documentation of these violations The grave, continuous and renewed suffering, especially in light of the renewed Palestinian suffering and what is happening recently in the West Bank in terms of resentment and international condemnation and solidarity from the American human rights communities as an ethnic issue par excellence through the deliberate Israeli approach to targeting the Palestinians and attacking their sanctities and continuing to extend violent security control and brutal arrest campaigns that are repeated day after day. the other.
