The Israeli Knesset Committee Plans to Extend its Jurisdiction to Include the Occupied Territories The Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center Considers this a Step towards Annexation
 
The Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center (JLAC) considered the decision, made by the Committee of the Israeli Knesset in its meeting convened on July 30, 2014, serious and alarming, by which (all permanent Knesset committees are authorized to discuss matters, each according to its jurisdiction and in compliance with Article 100 of the Knesset bylaws and legal precedents. Such matters shall include cases related to the areas of “Judea and Samaria”, enabling the committees of the Knesset to call for all relevant bodies “administrative bodies”, including the army and security apparatus operating in the areas of “Judea and Samaria” as well as taking any action deemed appropriate within rules pertaining to compulsory attendance and delivery of information).
JLAC perceived this decision as a political step which implies legal dimensions and made within the policy of imposing a fait accompli practiced by the Israeli government and its occupying authorities towards the realization of de facto annexation of large parts of the Palestinian territories

SPANISH FOLLOWS
The Colonization and Wall Resistance Commission, together with The Jerusalem Legal Aid & Human Rights Center -JLAC- urgently call the Israeli Authorities, International Community and all competent authorities to halt immediately and permanently the ethnic forced transfer of Palestinian Bedouins.
We denounce that the Palestinian Bedouins are facing a preconceived campaign to push them off their ancestral way of life and identity, into a series of concentration “townships”, forcibly urbanizing them and depriving them of their traditional sources of livelihood, as part of a prolonged Ethnic Cleansing and annexation of land strategy.


La Comisión Nacional en Contra del Muro y los Asentamientos y el Centro de Asistencia Legal y Derechos Humanos JLAC hacen un llamado urgente a las autoridades Israelís, la comunidad internacional y todas las autoridades competentes a frenar de forma inmediata y permanente la transferencia étnica forzosa de Beduinos Palestinos.

Denunciamos, que la población beduina palestina enfrenta una campaña premeditada como parte de una estrategia de limpieza étnica y anexión ilegal de tierras.
