“Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat expressed hope that world leaders would heed the experts’ words and hold Netanyahu’s government accountable should it move forward with the annexation in July.”

Accountable in what way?

Get past the first minute of arabic and listen to Mr. Galloway’s response:

Accountable by serious sanctions! By Boycott, divestiture, and tough sanctions as are used against other nations by the trump regime war criminals!.

The Fourth Geneva Convention made it illegal to transfer the occupying powers citizens into occupied territory - colonization aka “settlements” - that is what Israeli supremacist mindset, extremism and racism has done in a premeditated plan to “put facts on the ground that will be hard to change” - those words spoken by Israeli leaders going-back about 40-50 years refer to the “settlements” and the ethnic cleansing that comes along with them, as well as the Apartheid Wall built on Palestinian territory occupied by Israel and ruled illegal by the ICC That Israeli “facts on the ground” plan must not be tolerated or allowed to be fulfilled or all the International Law since, and as a result of WWII, would be made a mockery! Israel is an outlaw entity in violation of International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention on occupation, ruling of the ICC, the UN Charter and numerous resolutions, and world opinion, except for the captive lap-dog sycophant US government! ENOUGH!

Whatever the trump regime “believes”, "recognizes, or supports, re: Israeli ethnic cleansing and “annexation” of any parts of the Occupied Territories, it does not change International Human Rights Law one iota!

BDS! Zionism IS Racism! Silence IS Complicity!

Continued sadness watching the Zionist Israeli’s reclaim their land, albeit grow it like imperialists.
We give the cause tons of money, but we won’t do the same here at home with the Native Americans. Shouldn’t our tribes have the same right of reclamation?
Can they both be right? Can they both be wrong
Depends on who has the bigger guns I suppose.

I view it as a premeditated theft of territory based on supremacist racism, ancient history and :“religious” mythology, false narrative, ethnic cleansing and a violent endless occupation and colonization of Palestine taken by force in the 1967 war - a war designed and planned to take what was not then or 3000 years ago theirs.

Well that’s what i meant really by accountable in what way. Sanctions do not appear to work in this case. There needs to be another solution. Mr. Galloway seems to have it.

72 yrs ago the whole fucking world was on Israel’s side. Today, they have become what their persecutors (the Nazi’s) were in 1933-1945. I now have no fucking sympathy, empathy for the Jewish State.

Excellent reply, especially citing the Fourth Geneva Convention, the “facts on the ground” quote, and the apartheid wall. Forced annexation and settlement of another country’s land was a crime committed by Nazi Germany.

How is that land “Israel’s land”? Because the Bible, a book of myths, legends, and religious beliefs claims it was?

Very True. And the Israeli’s God is not the Palestinian’s God so who has claim to that land?
