Settlement activity in the West Bank undermines efforts to negotiate a peace between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. In fact, the United Nations and

Executive Summary
Settlement activity in the West Bank undermines e-orts to negotiate a peace between Israel and thePalestinian Authority. In act, the United Nations andother third parties around the world have consistentlycondemned Israeli settlement construction in the oc-cupied Palestinian territories, labeling it as a sign oIsrael’s lack o commitment to a two-state solution.First, ongoing settlement expansion usurps land des-ignated or Palestinian sovereignty in the Oslo Ac-cords and accepted as rightully Palestinian by the UNand other international bodies.Second, settlements are ar more than residentialenclaves; they are virtual military barracks, ortiedcastles that separate Palestinians rom their schools,places o business and extended communities. Theythreaten the saety o Palestinians who venture near,consume the lion’s share o the region’s water, andprevent normal movement o both people and goods.The result is ethnic segregation and discrimination.
