  • Description

    INTRODUCTION Earlier this week an Israeli Army unit moved into an abandoned police station in the occupied West Bank of the Jordan with the aim of setting up a new Jewish settlement there. The Israeli Military Command announced on Wednesday (20 April) that at first the unit would carry out normal Army tasks as well as cultivate the land, but the Israeli Government has already allocated fifteen million Israeli pounds to convert the site into a civilian settlement. Such settlements are an increasing source of irritation and anger to the Arab population of the West Bank. And for many Arabs, as Martin Bell reports, the biggest threat lies in Jerusalem itself.
