Factsheet: 45 Years of Occupation

From the US-based Institute of Middle East Understanding (IMEU) comes this comprehensive factsheet detailing 45 years of Israel’s occupation.

IMEU: June 5, 2012, marks the 45th anniversary of the start of the 1967 War, when Israel launched a surprise attack against Egypt and began its military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip, East Jerusalem, and Syrian Golan Heights.

Since that time, Israel has ruled over millions of Palestinians in the occupied territories by military decree, granting them no political rights while relentlessly colonizing their land. Forty-five years on, Israel’s occupation and settlement enterprise become more entrenched by the day, leading many observers to conclude that the creation of a sovereign and territorially contiguous Palestinian state alongside Israel (i.e. the two-state solution) is no longer possible.

The fact sheet provides an overview of 45 years of Israel’s occupation and settlement enterprise.
