The elimination of the Palestinian national presence > west of the Jordan River is implicit in the long-term > aims of the Israeli right wing. A violent, > apocalyptic driving-out of the entire Palestinian > population is explicitly advocated by the rightmost > political circles. What has actually been taking place > since the beginning of the 35 years of Israeli > occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, but at an > unprecedented rate for the last two years, is a > systematic process of demolition of Palestinian > private and public property, and mass expropriation of > Palestinian land on behalf of settlers. The guiding > principle is the effort to minimize the size of the > area actually inhabited by Palestinians. At the same > time, huge-scale harassment has been taking place, by > means of prolonged curfews, road-blocks, humiliations, > beatings, military invasions of densely populated > areas, detentions of thousands without trial under > sub-humane conditions, obstruction of access to work, > medical care, schools and universities, and a host of > other means. The soldiers were given license to treat > any Palestinian as a potential terrorist. Millions > of Palestinians have been reduced by Israeli > government policies to life in fearsome ghettos. Most > are now subsisting under the poverty line, on savings > or handouts from humanitarian > organizations. > > The ever-intensifying oppressive measures are being > inflicted on Palestinians by the Israeli government, > ostensibly to fight terror. We unequivocally condemn > terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians. There can > be no justification for acts of violence against any > unarmed people.However, the Israeli policies are not a > way to reduce terror; rather, they promote it, as > evidenced by the dramatic increase in terror acts > during the last two years. The terror acts are then > cynically used by Prime Minister Sharon as a pretext > to inflict more damage and hardships on the > Palestinians, and to further de-legitimize their > existence in the occupied territories in the > perception of the Israelis. THE PALESTINIAN PRESENCE > STANDS IN THE WAY OF SHARON'S LIFE-LONG VISION OF > GREATER ISRAEL, WITH SETTLERS SUPPLANTING > PALESTINIANS. THIS OBJECTIVE IS TRANSPARENT TO ANYBODY > WHO FOLLOWS WHAT HIS GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN ACTUALLY > DOING, rather than listening to the frequently uttered > but empty declarations about peace intentions, "once > the security problems are solved". > > The Israeli society pays a high price for the attempts > of its politicians to extend the Israeli domination, > and for their addiction to territorial expansion. The > drive to develop Israel as a modern, productive and > tolerant society was cruelly truncated. This drive has > been evident in periods of hopeful peace negotiations > with neighboring Arab states, and with Palestnians. > Fatalistic resignation to the vicious circle of fear, > oppression, violence and counter-violence is depriving > the whole society of positive energy, forward looking > projects and hope. The drain on the state resources > by the war effort and the expansion of the settlements > and the concurrent loss of investment result in large > scale unemployment and economic recession. Large > sectors of the Israeli society are denied access to a > decent standard of living, to decent education, and to > productive integration into modern technological and > cultural world. Instead, backward-looking > ultra-nationalistic ideologies are taking firm hold on > the social and political scene.
