爱彼迎允许在约旦河西岸的以色列定居点挂牌

Airbnb is canceling an earlier plan to bar listings in Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

爱彼迎现今取消了之前所制定禁止在约旦河西岸的以色列定居点挂牌的计划。

The home-sharing company announced in November that it would remove about 200 listings in the West Bank,which is territory claimed by Palestinians.

去年11月,这家房屋共享公司宣布将取消约旦河西岸约200家房屋租赁公司的挂牌,巴勒斯坦人宣称拥有约旦河西岸地区的是主权。

Airbnb announced this week it will now permit properties in Israeli settlements to be listed. The company also said it will donate all of the company's profits from West Bank properties to humanitarian aid organizations.

本周,爱彼迎宣布,现在它将允许以色列定居点的房屋被列出来。该公司还表示,将把从约旦河西岸房产中获得的全部利润捐给人道主义援助组织。

Airbnb said it will use the same approach in other disputed territories around the world, such as South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

爱彼迎称,它将在世界上其他有争议的地区采取同样的措施,比如南奥塞梯和阿布哈兹。

We have always sought to bring people together and will continue to work with our community to achieve this goal, Airbnb said.

爱彼迎表示:“我们一直致力于将人们聚集在一起,并将继续与我们的团体合作以实现这一目标。”

Supporters of Airbnb's initial plan expressed dissatisfaction.

支持爱彼迎最初计划的人对此表达了不满。

Human Rights Watch said, "Donating profits from unlawful settlement listings ... does nothing to remedy the human suffering."The rights group added that, "By continuing to do business in settlements," Airbnb remains active in the abuses settlements trigger."

人权观察组织称:“捐出从非法的以色列定居点挂牌中取得的利润,并不能治愈人类的痛苦。”该人权组织补充称,“通过继续在定居点中开展业务,爱彼迎仍然在积极地滥用定居点触发事件。

Others, however, celebrated the news.

然而,其他人则对这一消息表示了庆祝。

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner directs the Shurat HaDin – Israel Law Center, a Tel Aviv-based Israeli rights group.She said, "I believe other companies considering boycotts are going to take real note of the mistake Airbnb made and refuse to act against Israel and the Jewish community."

尼察纳· 达尔尚·莱特纳是总部位于特拉维夫的以色列人权组织以色列法律中心(Shurat HaDin)的负责人。她说,我相信其他考虑抵制爱彼迎的公司会真正意识到它们所犯的错误,并且会不再反对以色列和犹太社区。

Twelve home owners in the Jewish settlements brought legal action in U.S. federal court against Airbnb.All 12 are citizens of both Israel and the United States.The company's change in plans settles that case.

犹太定居点的12名房主向美国联邦法院起诉了爱彼迎。这12个人都是以色列和美国公民。公司改变计划解决了这个案子。

Lawyer Robert Tolchin represents the 12 American-Israeli citizens.He said, "As a provider of a service to the public, Airbnb is not permitted to refuse to provide services to selected religious groups to engineer who it thinks should be allowed to live where."

律师罗伯特·托尔钦为12名美裔以色列公民打官司。他说,作为向公众提供服务的公司,爱彼迎不能拒绝为选定的宗教团体的工程师提供服务,这些人是它认为应该允许他们住在这里的人。

The initial plan did not affect about 20,000 other Airbnb listings throughout Israel, including listings in other disputed areas, such as east Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.

最初的计划没有影响到以色列各地约2万个爱彼迎房源,其中包括东耶路撒冷和戈兰高地等有争议的地区的房源。

Airbnb announced the change in plans late Tuesday Israeli time -- the same day as the country's legislative elections.

以色列时间的周二晚些时候,爱彼迎宣布改变这一计划,当天恰逢以色列立法机构选举。

During the election campaign, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that if returned to power, Israel would annex West Bank settlements. That would likely end the remaining hopes of a two-state solution with the Palestinians.

在竞选期间,以色列总理本杰明·内塔尼亚胡表示,如果他重新掌权,以色列将吞并约旦河西岸的定居点。这可能会终结仅存的与巴勒斯坦达成两国方案的希望。

Israel captured the West Bank and east Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war.Today, over 400,000 Israeli settlers live in the West Bank.About 200,000 Israelis live in east Jerusalem.The Palestinians claim both areas as parts of a future state.

以色列在1967年的中东战争中占领了约旦河西岸和东耶路撒冷。今天,有40多万以色列定居者居住在约旦河西岸。大约20万以色列人居住在东耶路撒冷。巴勒斯坦人声称这两个地区未来将是他们国家的一部分。
