A new report by Who Profits maps the involvement of the Israeli wine industry in the occupation of the West Bank and the Syrian Golan Heights and traces some of the ways in which it masks this involvement.

Our report demonstrates that all of the major Israeli wineries use grapes from occupied territory in their wines.
The following update includes a translation of the essence of the verdict given by the Israeli High Court of Justice (HCJ) regarding holding Palestinian prisoners in prisons and detention facilities in Israel. Palestinian political prisoners and administrative detainees from the West Bank and Gaza are being held by the Israeli authorities in incarceration and detention facilities inside Israel, in contradiction to the Fourth Geneva Convention concerning the rights of protected persons in occupied territory. On March 25, 2009, the Israeli NGOs "Yesh Din", "The Association for civil rights in Israel" and "HaMoked" have petitioned the HCJ demanding a reevaluation of this policy. The petition was filed following a study by Yesh Din from 2007, which revealed that incarceration of Palestinians inside Israel entails a severe infringement of various civil rights, among them the rights to legal representation and due process.
