Congress may recognize illegal Israeli settlements on Palestinian landrnrnIt used to be that Israel was the only global player who refused to admit that its settlements in Palestine were illegal under international law.
Now there is a danger that Congress could be added to the list.
Members of both the House and Senate have recently introduced at least six different pieces of legislation attempting to legitimize these Palestinian land grabs by shielding them from increasing international trade pressure.
In doing so, Congress is essentially requiring the U.S.
to punish trade partners for adhering to international laws and for the first time in its history, endorse and defend the settlements by treating them as a part of Israel.
