On February 20, 2022, the Israeli government published a ninety page plan entitled “Procedure for Entry and Residence of Foreigners in the Judea and Samaria Area.” The plan, set to be implemented on October 20, 2022, encompasses heavy restrictions on any visitor, volunteer, professional, or spouse hoping to stay in the West Bank, permanently or for a short period of time. Ultimately, these rules further isolate Palestinians from the ability to move, love, study, and visit freely.
The ninety pages of this plan serve as a powerful addition to an already intricate and restrictive permit regime. The newest Israeli entry procedures to the West Bank, though, make two things clear. The first is that the human and civil rights of Palestinians to marriage, privacy, academia, nationality and equality are being impinged upon. The second is that there is a blatant separation between the realization of the rights of Palestinians and the realization of the rights of Israelis living within the same areas. This is apartheid. >>>>>
