Every Israeli Settlement is basically a military base: Jeff Halper

ICAHD Director Jeff Halper’s interview on Israel arming settlers: Turning Tables: ‘Israel illegal occupier if Palestine recognized’.

The Israeli Defence Force is reportedly preparing settlers for the mass uprising of Palestinians, expected after the UN votes on a Palestinian statehood in September. The preparations include handing out tear gas and stun grenades to civilians.

Military resistance to Palestinians will only bring international sanctions on Israel after Palestine is recognised in September’s vote. That’s the view of Jeff Halper, a political activist and co-founder of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions
