Israel’s settler council is preying on vulnerable refugees from Ukraine, offering help and homes in West Bank settlements. Beneath the smiles, there’s a toxic message: Flee occupation, become occupiers

– I am looking at a leaflet in Russian distributed by the Judea and Samaria Council, the representative body for Israel’s West Bank settlements.
It reads: “Dear friends arriving in Israel from Ukraine and the former Soviet Union! We are ready to host you in the towns and settlements of Judea and Samaria. We will help you to choose a destination, settle in, choose an ulpan [Hebrew language course] for yourself and a school for your kids, and navigate the bureaucracy.”
