State Department's Nuland says US "deeply disappointed" with Israeli plan to construct thousands of apartments in east Jerusalem; UK's Hague calls move an "obstacle to peace, two-state solution."The west is holding Israel hostage.
Both the United States and the United Kingdom on Tuesday attacked Israel's plans to construct thousands of new Jewish apartments in east Jerusalem, calling the move a "provocation" and saying it endangered the fragile peace process.
"We are deeply disappointed that Israel insists on continuing this pattern of provocative action. These repeated announcements and plans of new construction run counter to the cause of peace," US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.
"Israel's leaders continually say that they support a path towards a two-state solution yet these actions only put that goal further at risk.
"So we again call on Israel, and the Palestinians, to cease any kinds of counterproductive, unilateral actions and take concrete steps to return to direct negotiations," Nuland said.
For 75 years now the Jews of the Middle East have agreed to divide Jewish land into a Jewish state and yet another Arab-Muslim state. The Arabs have perpetually refused to accept any such state if it means living in peace with Israel, yet the western powers, and this hostile American president, continue to blame the Jews of the Middle East for Arab-Muslim aggression toward them.
All throughout the course of this year the Palestinians shot rockets into southern Israel making that part of the country virtually unlivable and giving little Jewish kids Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the western left gave its silent assent. When Israel finally responded Hillary Clinton rode into town to save Hamas from the direct consequences of its own behavior. Then the United Nations formally destroyed the "Oslo peace process" through declaring "Palestine" a state. And now the United States and Europe are displeased because Jews are building homes for themselves on the outskirts of the eastern section of Jerusalem?
This is a sucker's game and the biggest suckers are progressive-left Jews who continue to think that if only Israel would get down on its hands and knees then the Arabs will finally, after fourteen hundred years of hatred and aggression, agree to leave the Jewish people in peace. And, needless to say, they are fully prepared to join with anti-Semitic anti-Zionists in viciously castigating any Jew with a spine who stands up for the Jewish people and the Jewish state.
What a disgrace.
