Inconceivable Failure: Secret Land Grabs in Area C

Massive development works on a new PA Arab city have been carried out in secret on Israeli state-owned and privately owned Jewish land in Area C, near the Karnei Shomron industrial zone. The works include the development of lots, construction of buildings, opening and paving roads, and laying down infrastructure connections.

The Regavim movement contacted law enforcement authorities as soon as this illegal work began but received no response and the fieldwork continued. Head of the Samaria Regional Council Yossi Dagan said: “The government is systematically abandoning Area C and now also private lands that Jews have purchased. This failure is inconceivable. Selective enforcement is reaching a peak we have not seen before.”

Just yesterday Arutz Sheva reported that the Palestinian Authority approved aid for the ‘committee for the fight against the fence and the settlements’ to further what it called “the fanatical colonialist attacks of the occupation authorities and the settlers.”

Israel’s inability to gain control of this issue greatly empowers the Arabs to advance their mission of destroying Israel. Whether another report from Regavim or an article in Arutz Sheva, this is not the kind of news we want to read. When will this register as being so terribly wrong that Israel’s officials must take necessary actions to stop it?
