HCJ 9961/03 - HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual v. The Government of Israel et al. Preliminary Response on behalf of the Respondents
Court Documents | 9961/03 | 1.1.2004
The Respondents argue that construction of the barrier in the Seam Area, and the requisition of property in this area are based solely on security considerations, and are consistent with the laws of belligerent occupation; and that ensuring the safety of settlers comes within these laws. The Respondents argue that Palestinian residents in the area had committed racist, terrorist acts against Israelis, so that it is justifiable to make a distinction, when setting restrictions on freedom of movement, between them and other persons. They further argue that the petition is basically political, is general, and does not relate to specific sections of the barrier, and is premature regarding the parts of the route of the barrier as to which orders for requisition have not yet been issued.
Amended petition against the permit regime in the "seam zone'": HaMoked: Center for the Defence of the Individual petitions against the apartheid regime instituted by Israel, that effectively creates two distinct groups within the seam zone: Israelis and tourists, who freely enter, move about and leave the zone; and Palestinians, who require permits to enter, work and sleep in the zone.
HaMoked’s response to the state’s position in the petition against the permit regime implemented by Israel in the “seam area”: The regime creates a clear separation between Israelis and holders of Israeli visas and Palestinians from the Territories and as such, constitutes the crime of apartheid (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
