Either all of Israel is illegitimate (which may be what Obama thinks) or the “settlements” are on Israeli land by UN declaration and the right recognized for all nations victorious in war throughout history — except Israel in 1948 and 1967. Once again the U.S. supports “Palestinian” jihad propaganda — and what did it get them? Did the “Palestinians” meet the gesture of good will with one of their own and make peace? No, they ratcheted up the genocidal jihadist rhetoric.
“Netanyahu – US Forced Construction Freeze,” by Shalom Bear, The Jewish Press, May 30, 2014 (thanks to Marla):
In a meeting this week between Prime Minister Netanyahu and twenty settlement leaders, Netanyahu said that it was the US’s demand to freeze settlements that prevented the meeting of the Department of Planning in the Civil Administration.
Netanyahu said he was the one who gave the order for the department to not meet, but didn’t anticipate the extensive damage that came about as a result, where, even to put up a light post, much less build a needed nursery school, became impossible.
Netanyahu told the leaders that Obama had demanded of him that not even one house be built.
