The Trump Administration continues its efforts to promote international anarchy by withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council, after having withdrawn from UNESCO and the Paris Agreement, among others. Their choice has been to side with the Israel's colonization of Palestine, rather than the rule of international law and UN resolutions.
It has become quite evident that the current U.S. administration has become the main campaigner for Israel in crushing Palestinian national and human rights. For the past few months, American officials have continued to voice their approval of the ongoing killing of Palestinian protestors in Gaza, of Israeli colonial settlement announcements, and of a new wave of racist Israeli laws (that not only discriminate against Palestinians living under Israeli occupation, but also against Palestinian citizens of Israel.)
Last Thursday, Israel's Supreme Court approved the demolition and forcible transfer of the entire community of Khan al-Ahmar Abu al-Helu, a home to 35 Palestinian families with a total population of 180 people, for the expansion of more Israeli colonial settlements on lands belonging to the State of Palestine in the eastern Jerusalem governorate. This is yet another example of how the Israeli "justice" system continues to consolidate the Israeli occupation of Palestine and to support the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people.
