As Palestinians in Gaza face genocide, the silent annexation of the West Bank receives much less consideration. Since October 7, reportedly 114 Palestinians have been killed within the West Bank, and 1,200 arrests and speedy raids have taken place.
Today, West Bank is dealing with one other Al Nakba (exodus). In the worst-hit cities and refugee camps similar to Jenin, Aqabat Jaber, Qalqilya, and Qalandiya, smaller Bedouin communities are being evacuated, land is being grabbed, and farms are being vandalised.
How and why is the Shomron Regional Council, positioned north of West Bank with 35 Israeli settlements beneath its jurisdiction, within the strategy of distributing 300 assault rifles to civilian safety squads? Does state-sponsored violence have legitimacy in unlawful Israeli settlements? Yossi Dagan, the pinnacle of the Council, says he has raised “millions” of shekels from donors around the globe to buy the rifles. Who are these donors? What is the surveillance on such funding? The dialog concerning the sophisticated nature of the Israeli occupation has been changed with a debate between anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
