Go HERE for a 23 minute long edited version of the above turned into an episode of APN's PeaceCast.
Hagit Ofran of Peace Now’s Settlement Watch team laid out the way in which Israeli authorities use the Absentee Property Law to dispossess Palestinians of their properties in East Jerusalem and transfer their homes to settlers. This same process could be applied to tens of thousands of Palestinians if and when Israel annexes in the West Bank.
Hagit Ofran is the co-director of Settlement Watch, a project of Shalom Achshav (Peace Now). She has two decades of expertise on issues related to settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
