Israel-Palestine: Normalising apartheid under the guise of 'shrinking the conflict'

Kfar Adumim is, in many ways, an archetypal Israeli settlement. Established in 1979, it is, like all Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, a violation of international law. Located near Jerusalem, it is part of a cluster of colonies designed to fragment Palestinian territory.

Built at the expense of Palestinians, its residents - who, like the historic settler enterprise writ large, are a secular-religious mix - continue to play a role in efforts to dispossess Palestinians.

There is no concept of Palestinian rights, identity or history; they are simply an annoyance and a complication

Kfar Adumim is a part of an inherently discriminatory regime; a war crime. At the same time, the settlement is very much part of the so-called “consensus” among Israeli political parties. As a Meretz candidate put it in 2019: “There is no danger [of a future evacuation] for Kfar Adumim.”
