Eyewitness Palestine
Israel's occupation of Palestinian territories: Quest for security or land grab?

Join us for a presentation and slide show by writer and activist, Sharat G. Lin, who recently returned from Palestine.

The Israeli government and its U.S. supporters cite security as the paramount reason for the West Bank barrier restricting Palestinian access to population centers. Yet more barriers are being built dividing Palestinian from Palestinian. Why? Israeli settlements continue to be built and expanded on the Palestinian side of the barrier. The number of military checkpoints has risen to over 550 in the West Bank. What are the real reasons for the so-called "security" or "separation" barrier?

Dr. Sharat G. Lin examines the nature of the Israeli occupation policies in East Jerusalem, Hebron, Qalqiliyah, and Gaza, and how they are reshaping the West Bank. He argues that security will follow only after the elimination of the Israeli occupation, apartheid, land segmentation, inequality and control, and an end to U.S. political and military support. The occupation of Palestine parallels that of Iraq—reduce violence by eliminating the primary cause of that violence—the U.S. military occupation, which is the direct or indirect target of over 80 per cent of insurgent attacks.

Sharat G. Lin writes on global political economy, the Middle East, India, labor migration, public health, and the environment. He has lived for many years in the Middle East.
