Some question whether the brew is appropriate considering the drug lord’s crimes.
Ray: “The West Bank has remained an occupied territory for over 47 years. During this period we have ignored international treaties; expropriated land; moved Israeli settlers from Israel to the occupied territories; engaged in acts of disinheritance and theft. We have justified all these actions in the name of security. Over the years, the motives for the occupation have merged into the following: economic exploitation of the occupied territories for the well-being of Israeli settlers and their needs. In our eagerness to maintain control over the occupied territories, we have developed two separate legal systems: an advanced, liberal system for Israel and Israeli settlers; and a cruel, abusive system for Palestinians in the occupied territories. In effect, we imposed an apartheid regime in the occupied territories immediately after their conquest. This oppressive regime exists to this day. The regime of occupation is not only morally unjustifiable, but it also undermines Israel’s security and endangers its existence. The Palestinian people are entitled to an independent state. Do not expect them to accept a state that not only lacks territorial contiguity between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but is also dismembered by Israeli settlements and foreign military outposts stuck like thorns in its side. This will only lead to renewed military conflagrations between Israel and the Palestinians." Statement by Michael Ben Yair, former Israeli Attorney General, November 2014
