Emily Anderson | REPORTAJE A ROQUE DE PABLO EN PARAGUAY*
Adalah-NY | “Leviev claims that we are ignorant of his activities. We know that he is destroying West Bank Palestinian communities like Bil’in and Jayyous with the Israeli settlements his companies are building,” said Ethan Heitner of Adalah-NY. “The five settlements where he has built homes threaten to derail the negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians that started in Annapolis last week. They carve the West Bank into disconnected enclaves, seize valuable resources, and isolate Jerusalem, rendering the creation of a viable Palestinian state impossible. Leviev’s philanthropy in other parts of the world is small compensation for his contribution to inflaming arguably the world’s most important political conflict.”
