AriRusila's Conflicts

Susya is the site of an ancient Jewish village in the southern Judaean Mountains south of Hevron, on the road towards Be’er Sheva, a Palestinian village claimed established by the 1830s and a religious communal Israeli settlement under the jurisdiction of Har Hebron Regional Council established in 1983. The Susya region lies in Zone C according the Oslo Agreements where the West Bank was divided in Area A (18% of the West Bank territory under PA – Palestinian Authority), B (22% under Palestinian civilian control) and C (60% under direct Israeli control).

Moldiv_1436981142133The Israeli Supreme Court has given the green light for the demolition of 80 illegal structures in Arab Susya. On Thursday [16th July 2015] demolition orders were distributed to the Arab squatters. Arab Susya was built adjacent to the Jewish community of Susya that was established in 1983. Problematically, the Arab town was built on the archaeological site of ancient Susya, a Jewish village from the Temple Period.

According Arutz Sheva newsportal US State Department spokesperson John Kirby delivered a terse statement against Israel at a press briefing on 16th July 2015, incredibly ordering the Jewish state not to demolish illegal structures built by Arab squatters on an ancient Jewish village. After an Arab journalist asked about reports that Israel may carry out the demolition soon, Kirby said the State Department is “closely following developments”.

“We strongly urge the Israeli authorities to refrain from carrying out any demolitions in the village,” warned Kirby. “Demolition of this Palestinian village or of parts of it, and evictions of Palestinians from their homes, would be harmful and provocative. Such actions have an impact beyond those individuals and families who are evicted…[the demolition may] “worsen the atmosphere for a peaceful resolution and would set a damaging standard for displacement and land confiscation particularly given settlement-related activity in the area.”


According Arutz Sheva Kirby clearly was reading a typed answer to the question, whereas in his other answers he spoke in his own words without a pre-scripted message. This fact would appear to indicate both the strong intentions expressed in the statement, as well as how the State Department was planning to address the issue – and possibly pre-arranged for the question to be asked.

susyaThe “Palestinian village” Kirby took such pains to defend was in fact built adjacent to the Jewish community of Susya which was established in 1983. Problematically, the Arab town was built on the archaeological site of ancient Susya, a Jewish village from the Temple Period. The position on an illegal Arab settlement is particularly hypocritical given the State Department’s vocal condemnation of Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria, labeling them as “illegal settlements” and urging their demolition – despite the 2012 Levy Report‘s finding that the Jewish presence in the region is legal according to international law.

While Arab squatters have claimed an Arab historical connection to the site, historical documents have thoroughly debunked that claim, showing how the Arab village is a very recent phenomenon whereas the ancient Jewish connection to the site is established in the records. Tzviki Bar-Hai, then head of the Har Hevron regional council, told Arutz Sheva in late 2013 that the Arab presence in Susya is very recent. “I was there in 1976, and aside from the synagogue that was built here in 1969, there wasn’t a living soul,” he recalled. “We were able to restart the archaeological digs in 1983, and then, too, there were no Palestinians around.” He noted how Arab farmers began to visit Susya for one or two nights at a time during certain parts of the year starting in 1986, revealing that those now claiming to be residents of Susya are actually from the nearby Arab town of Yatta.

The researcher and Jerusalem Post journalist Dr. Seth J. Frantzman, carried out his Ph.D. research at the Hebrew University, using Israel State Archives and the map archives of the Hebrew University and National Library as well as at the aerial photo archive of the Hebrew University’s Geography department, on the foundation, expansion and development of Arab villages in the 19th and early 20th century, tracing how some villages expanded and gave birth to “daughter villages”. Dr. Frantzman notes that he did not come across any village, hamlet or settlement at Susya. He did identify several other villages that were founded in the 1940s, which Professor David Grossman of the Department of Geography at Bar Ilan Unversity has also written about. For example, the village Rahiya, near Yatta, was founded in the late 19th century or early 20th century. Yet there is no evidence, however, from records examined at Ben Gurion University from the Ottoman Empire period or British mandate period, of any village or settlement ever existing at Susya. The Palestine Exploration Fund, which carried out a thorough and widely respected survey of the country from 1871-77 did not show any village or settlement in the area of Susya. Instead they noted only the ruins of ancient Susya, which was a Jewish town from the Temple period with a synagogue facing Jerusalem, ritual bath and other artifacts. [Source: Arutz Sheva ]

ancient Susya, Israel

The case of Susya is one example of problems with outposts and settlements of Arab side (Arabs from PA-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria, and by Bedouin Arabs in the Negev). The Arabs do not seek permits, and set up whole towns, which in some cases have grown to be small cities. The outposts are built on state land, often on land used by the IDF for training, and as a result the army is forced to adjust its exercises, jeopardizing the security of Israelis. In addition, the outposts are not hooked up to sewage systems, and raw Arab sewage is often dumped in environmentally sensitive areas, ruining the ecology of many areas. In many cases, the Arabs refuse to request permits for their outposts, refusing to recognize the authority of the state, and avoiding paying for development and infrastructure costs. As an illegal outpost, the Arab settlement does not have a development plan even in some cases they are working with that kind of plan in the hope of retroactively legalizing the site.

In addition – according The Jerusalem Post – the EU is building hundreds of illegal structures in the West Bank, which the government has not removed in order to avoid a diplomatic tangle with the Europeans. The structures are being built near Ma’aleh Adumim and its E1 area, some of the structures are even being built on nature reserves, where construction is forbidden. These buildings contravene the Oslo Accords, which give Israel full administrative responsibility and authority over Area C so the EU is participating in a violation of the Oslo II Agreement.

Susya is also example of problems due unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The legal procedures are more clear e.g. in Negev (inside 1967 cease-fire line) than in Areas A, B or C in Samaria and Judea where different civil laws and military rules are prevailing.

  1. The Palestinian village of Susya is relatively new and built without permit on an archaeological site. But this does not justify the order to demolish houses before a hearing at the Israeli Court of Justice on August 3. According to an article published in the English version of Haaretz on 20 July, the issue is not as simple as Ari Rusila claims. The Palestinian villagers were already in 1986 expelled from a village of caves in which they had lived for more than 100 years. They found then refuge in other caves and built some huts. “Dismantling Palestinian Susya would allow the (Jewish) settlement of Susya to expand its grab of Palestinian lands,” Haaretz writes. This can be seen from the map Rusila attached to his op-ed.

  2. SAUDI ARABIA ON THE VERGE OF CRISIS.
    Expert assessment of Academy of Geopolitics.
    Kadyrov’s trip to Saudi Arabia isn’t too similar to private visit though the pretext looks that. Thus especially for the guest the entrance to a sacred mosque was open – that doesn’t look something absolutely exotic, but also not for each it do.
    Kadyrov’s meeting with actually acting as the king though the prince Mokhkhamed bin Salman who is formally standing on the third step of hierarchy too isn’t something ordinary. On the volume of the powers concentrated in Mohammed’s hands he looks definitely not the third. Its level of meetings – not the Russian governors, but the top Russian government. President, prime minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
    In general, never also didn’t disappear that Kadyrov and elite has dynasties Al-Saudov quite labor relations, however now they are on the highest of possible levels.
    There are two possible options of an explanation for the events: or Kadyrov carries out Putin’s order, and the outlined turn in the relations between the management of KSA and Russia is recognized necessary in both capitals, or Kadyrov acts independently, having covered from questions of Moscow with especially private character of a trip.
    The first explanation looks very unpleasant – Saudi Arabia from Russia now needs only one: its introduction in the coalition against IGIL. The coalition in which Saudi Arabia is the key country, looks in fight against the Islamic state extremely faintly: the third of the Saudi army collected on the Yemen border hardly beats off from guerrilla and not too organized raids of husit. As she will be at war with IGIL groups, simply to foresee – in any way.
    The United States won’t rescue saudit. Israelis and Pakistan – it is possible. But it it should pay for it. In fact, can rescue the Kingdom only Russia. From here and sudden interest of the highest dignitaries of the Kingdom in investments into Russia.
    Generally, the first explanation of a trip of Kadyrov both possible steps of the Kremlin and Al-Saudov towards each other look very unpleasantly. The entry of Russia in this or that form in the coalition against IGIL will automatically lead to that the Islamic state will be simply compelled to attack Russia in a manner, traditional for it, – through surge in acts of terrorism, creation and an aktivizition of the underground, and then and quite operating terrorist cells, and then and groups. War will inevitably come to Russia in such look. Upon Saudi Arabia will simply pay to Putin participation in it with investment money, the real payment should be brought blood of Russians.
    The second explanation too doesn’t look iridescent. The unauthorized trip of Kadyrov and his summit can mean that he looks for options in case of sharp complication of the own relations with Moscow. It is quite possible: the open setups which began with Nemtsov’s murder personally on it are covered on the top so far. The built system of the relations between Moscow and Grozny at all their strange character guarantee relative tranquillity in the region. The actual tribute which is rendered by the Kremlin, is inevitable in a situation, when there is no other policy. Thus it is obvious that to contain all North Caucasus as Chechnya, Moscow has no means – them even in corpulent years of blessed prices of oil it wasn’t far for one hundred dollars. Now they aren’t present absolutely.
    It is possible that just the usykhaniye of deep streams and compels Kadyrov to look for new sources. And in this case he can offer the Kingdom that is required to it – the armed force capable to neutralize IGIL. It is unlikely to win, of course, but it is essential to reduce threat – yes. Only saudita will pay for it not to Moscow any more, and directly to Grozny.
    More than obviously that such succession of events is possible only in one case – if Kadyrov doesn’t believe any more in Putin’s ability to keep in power or a situation in the Russian economy such is that he is compelled to undertake preventive measures for prevention of a collapse of a situation in Chechnya which got used to generous injections. In fact, his authority keeps only on this generous tribute from Moscow. There is no tribute – to it there will be questions.
    This explanation too looks is very disturbing: Chechnya can replace a syuzeren only in one way – through an exit from submission to Moscow. And it besides calls into question into the only thing of achievement of Putin for all his 15-year term of stay in power – stability in the North Caucasus, let and at the price of payment of a tribute.
    Is, of course, and other explanations of a trip of Kadyrov – up to that he indeed decided to visit simply the Kaaba and paid a tribute of respect to the local native management. However, in that case the level of an afterfeast of respect would be not above the governor of the province Khalid bin Feysal – the son of one of the previous kings. It too the prince and too the member of a dynasty, but to it it is very far to tops of the power in the Kingdom.
