Israel Jews okay 2,500 new settlement homes, 2 days after PM talks to Trump
‘We’re building — and will continue to build,’ Netanyahu says; Liberman also seeks green light for Palestinian industrial zone.
Israel approved the construction of approximately 2,500 homes in the West Bank, most of them in existing settlement blocs, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman announced on Tuesday.
The decision came two days after a Jerusalem planning committee approved the construction of 566 housing units in East Jerusalem, and on the heels of a phone conversation on Sunday between Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump, in which the two discussed their plans for the region.
Most of the housing units will be built in the large settlement areas, notably in the city of Ariel and in Givat Ze’ev, outside Jerusalem. But some will also go up in settlements outside the larger blocs, due to prior agreements and court decisions.
“We’re building — and will continue to build,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, following the approval.
Palestinians quickly condemned the announcement, calling it “land theft and colonialism.”
“Such a deliberate escalation of Israel’s illegal settlement enterprise constitutes a war crime and the flagrant violation of international law and conventions, in particular UN Security Council resolution 2334,” said PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, referring to an anti-settlements UN decision passed last month.
~I suspect we will soon see Mark Glenn on PressTV telling everyone how great Trump is because he is against the media. It isnt the media we should be against it’s not having a free and fair media we should be against and PressTV isnt a free and fair media either. Last year Fox News and Press TV were on opposites sides of the spectrum and now they are both on the same page. Its amazing how we forget the treachery. Jews nevah fahghet, but when they have their shills working on our side they forget real fast. Where are all the Palestine supporters now? In a pickle jar (kosher too).
The settlers aren’t just in the jew welfare state they are in the troof movements as well!
Trump can move the embassy to Jerusalem, Jews can bomb it and claim it was the Palestinians and game over! It all comes down to media, who will control what the lemmings hear?
