Bio-Terror: Zombie Israeli Squatters with Covid-19 break Quarantine, assault Palestinians at close Quarters

On Wednesday, a band of 20 Israeli squatters diagnosed with Covid-19, who had been placed in quarantine in their squatter-settlement on Palestinian land in the West Bank’s Ghor Valley, ghoulishly broke out and attacked a nearby Palestinian hamlet. They are members of the violent “Hilltop Youth” extremist group. The Israeli terrorists, operating in Palestinian territory, burned cars, stoned civilians, and attacked individuals. They beat a young Palestinian woman so badly that she had to be rushed to the emergency room in an Israeli hospital. Since she has now likely been infected, this injury may be a death sentence, since comorbidity conditions severe enough to require hospitalization would worsen her chance of surviving when she contracts the virus and it attacks her lungs. Since being in close proximity to an infected person will likely make you sick– the novel coronavirus is extremely contagious — I can only conclude that the “Hilltop Youth” squatters were actually trying to spread the virus among Palestinians. I mean, really, this is up there with white supremacists in the 19th century giving small-pox-infect blankets to Native Americans. Israeli caretaker prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has vowed to annex the Ghor Valley in the West Bank to Israel. Palestinian sources also say that Israeli authorities are interfering with Palestinian attempts to stop the spread of the disease. The Israeli military closed down a medical center in Silwan set up to combat pandemic, on the grounds that it partnered with the Palestine authority across the green line. Aside from the handful of psychopaths in the Ghor Valley, most Israelis are not trying actively to spread the virus to the Palestinians, though there are a lot of conspiracy theories to that effect. Mostly it is just the logic of Occupation. Occupied people don’t have basic rights or autonomy, and Israeli security objectives override Palestinian health efforts as at Silwan. Palestinian authorities say that a low intensity war is being waged by the illegal squatters on Palestinian civilians throughout the West Bank, as the world’s attention has turned toward the coronavirus pandemic. Also on Wednesday, militant squatters in Hebron attacked an activist center in the largely Palestinian city.

Israeli settlers have sharply increased their terrorist attacks throughout the West Bank under the protection of Israeli occupation forces.


The closed off Bethlehem area which is the epicenter of Palestine's COVID-19 outbreak and under strict measures of quarantine, has been targeted by Israeli settlers who uprooted at least 1200 olive and vine trees as part of their environmental terrorism.


At the same time the Israeli army stepped up the expansion of the massive settlement bloc of "Gush Etzion" to complete the siege and isolation of occupied Jerusalem.


The toxic Israeli campaign seeks to destroy Palestinian statehood and the chances for peace.


The besieged Gaza Strip is one of the most vulnerable spots on earth for the spread of COVID-19 due to its long and painful military siege.

Palestinians have been forced into poverty and lack of opportunities because of Israel’s aim to continue ethnic cleansing of Palestine.


Although there is no unity, Netanyahu gave a “victory” speech to a half empty hall. He did not utter the word “Arabs”once.

The audience broke into “non-unity” chants. Netanyahu did not mention that one in every four Israelis lives below the poverty line or that Israel’s education system is performing below the OECD average.(organization for economic cooperation and development.) He did not talk about how Giv’at Olga in the north has transformed from an immigrant  absorption center to a neighborhood of high rise apartments which most Israelis cannot afford to buy.


He did not explain why the government has not implemented plans to promote affordable housing , while destroying public housing.


He neither mentioned Palestine or Palestinians nor the serious indictments against him. He did not address the fact that he does not hold a majority of seats. To enact immunity laws and save himself from trial, Netanyahu will need 61 members in the Knesset to form a coalition, not just a relative majority.


The promise made by the Joint List Odeh, is that Netanyahu will be ousted thanks to Arab voters. Let us hope. ( Ayman Odeh is an Israeli Arab lawyer, the leader of the Hadash Party, the Arab Party in then Knesset.)
