An old trick in the box, used all too often: don't give the required legal permissions to Palestinian houseowners for repairing houses. When these houses become so derelict that their owners leave them, use the Israeli law to confiscate them as "unused buildings". And: applying the same trick with Palestinian farmland, after making it impossible to work those lands in a productive fashion. And then confiscating the lands as being "barren" and "unused" Another one: buildings settlements, walls, bypass roads and checkpoints in areas which before 1967 where Jordan territory. Thus abusing the occupation of those territories. Historically: the Ethnic cleansing during the Nakba, and later on the Golan Heights. And then the posing of the historic lie that the Palestinians would have left voluntarily. Encircling the Arab part of Jerusalem with Jewish quarters, by preference beyond the Green Line. Shall I go on?
