Just days after US President Donald Trump was sworn into office, Israel approved the construction of approximately 2,500 new housing units in West Bank settlements Tuesday, according to a statement from Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"We are building - and we will continue to build," said Netanyahu in a tweet.

For all you guys who have never been to Israel, building a "settlement" invokes this idea that Israel is building entire "settlements" on "occupied land" (BS) out in the desert somewhere. It actually means building an apartment house across the street. Literally. That's how close distances are there.

Trump was elected to fix America's problems not everyone else's issues. Time to concentrate on America and stop meddling in the business of other countries.
Are you denying that Palestinians are being displaced by these settlement expansions?
