Maaleh Adumim , as Mitchell surely knows, is an Israeli colony built on occupied territory in violation of international law, a process entailing land theft from and forced displacement of Palestinians. Treated like slaves This astonishing example shows that Mitchell is confusing cooperation with illegal colonization, occupation profiteering, environmental destruction and exploitation of Palestinian workers. As Stephanie Westbrook reported for The Electronic Intifada in May , Palestinian workers who must seek jobs in Israeli colonies for want of any other opportunities, are often badly mistreated. One SodaStream worker, who was too frightened to be named, said, They treat us like slaves. This has happened many times on the assembly line: when a worker is sick and wants to take sick leave, the supervisor will fire him on the second day. They will not even give him warning or send him to human resources, they will immediately fire him. Israeli firms often locate their factories in the occupied West Bank precisely because they can operate outside Israels labor and environmental laws.
