US Official Condemns Israeli Settlement Expansion, But Biden Will Not Leverage Visit to Tel Aviv

pic 1 600x400

A State Department official condemned Israel on Friday in response to a Tel Aviv plan to add 4,000 new settlement homes. Palestinian groups responded favorably to the statement but expressed that mere words are insufficient.  Deputy State Department spokesperson Jalina Porter told reporters that the continued settlement expansion would damage the chance of a two-state solution on Friday. “Israel’s program of expanding settlements deeply damages the prospect for a two-state solution.” She added, “strongly opposes the expansion of settlements, which exacerbates tensions and undermines trust...

1/7/21 Kalmen Barkin on Israeli Settlements and Netanyahu’s Political Future

Kalmen Barkin discusses the deplorable situation of Palestinians in Israel today, a people whose lands and rights are being slowly taken away from them by the Israeli government, while the delusive promise of a two-state solution vanishes along with them. Barkin believes Netanyahu may be in political (as well as legal) trouble these days, though he has been able to survive nearly every challenge to his regime thus far. Even if Netanyahu is replaced by another prime minister, it is unlikely that the project of expanding settlements further and further into Palestinian territory will ever...

Boris Johnson: Israeli Annexation Against Law

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Tuesday that Israeli plans to annex parts of the West Bank would “amount to a breach of international law.” Asked in the House of Commons about possible sanctions on Israel over the West Bank settlements, Johnson said: “I believe that what is proposed by Israel would amount to a breach of international law. We have strongly objected. We believe profoundly in a two-state solution and we will continue to make that case.” Not that he's going to do anything about it.

Jordan’s Abdullah: Israel Imposing ‘Unthinkable Solution’ On Palestinians

Jordan’s King Abdullah II accuses Israel of trying to “impose an unthinkable solution” on Palestinians as hopes fade for a two-state solution backed by the international community. Speaking to lawmakers at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, he says Israel’s construction of settlements in the West Bank and “disregard of international law” could be summed up as “one state turning its back on its neighborhood, perpetuating divisions among peoples and faiths worldwide.” The Jordanian monarch carries the hereditary title of “custodian” of holy Muslim and Christian sites in...

Gideon Levy: Please, Bibi, Let the Annexation Begin

Gideon Levy says it's time to end the charade. The time has come to put an end to the great masked ball that Israel and the world have been holding for 52 years already. All that’s left now is to say so officially. To admit to Israelis and to the world: Enough with the occupation, we have annexation. There are no settlements, there are towns. The two-state solution has been put to death, and it actually happened long ago. What remains is one state, in which the only battle will be over the system of...

Booker: ‘I got to the US Senate to stand up for the State of Israel’

Asked if PM Netanyahu is a racist, U.S. Senator Cory Booker responded: “You know, what I think very strongly, sir, is that we have a crisis with Israel right now. Israel is less safe under this president than it was before. We literally have a president right now that has allowed Iran to have a superhighway through Syria; that literally announces by tweet that he’ s pulling our troops out which puts Israel more at risk. We have a president who is breaking [the] tradition of Democratic and Republican presidents in the past by turning his back on the commitment to a two-state solution. We...

Trump and Kushner’s Deal of the Century

Is a joke, as detailed in today's Washington Post. It was important for Israeli PR to have the failed talks at Camp David in 2000, where they pretended that the Palestinians refused to accept a perfectly good deal, which was no such thing at all. But what's the point of even going through this charade now when it will only serve to show that Oslo was a scam and that the Israelis are liars who only ever pretended to intend to implement a "two-state solution" of independence for the Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem. “We believe we have a plan that is fair, realistic...
