IPNOT QUOTE OF THE DAY November 28th 2016: THE OCCUPATION IS PART OF THE ISRAELI ECONOMY

…the occupation is actually a source of income and profit for Israel.
 
Israeli companies extract natural resources like stone, gravel and water from the West Bank. Instead of having to purchase land, military seizure orders are used to increase the housing supply and build segregated highways, creating subsidized commuter suburbs for Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. And the occupied Palestinian population becomes a virtual captive market for Israeli products.
 
Israel is worried about a settlement boycott because not only is the settlement economy virtually inseparable from the Israeli economy, the occupation is part of the Israeli economy.
