Netanyahu confirms: building will continue


www.euronews.net


Despite worldwide condemnation, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said Israel will continue with plans for settlement construction in Jerusalem.

It comes after reports that US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton demanded a project to build 1600 homes in East Jerusalem was cancelled.

Speaking in Parliament, and defying the United States, Netanyahu rejected placing any curbs on building homes.

Israel should be careful

Former US Ambassador to Israel Martin S. Indyk told Channel 2 Monday that while he didn’t agree with Israeli envoy Michael Oren’s assessment that the crisis was the worst since 1975, it was heading in that direction.

Indyk warned Israel to take more care in the way it treats its longtime ally, and said the ball was now "in [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu’s court.”

US wants Israel to cancel Jerusalem building plan

JERUSALEM — The Obama administration is demanding that Israel call off a contentious building project in east Jerusalem and make a public gesture toward the Palestinians to help defuse one of the worst U.S.-Israeli feuds in memory, officials on both sides said Monday.

But Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu showed little sign of yielding, saying Jewish construction in east Jerusalem "in no way" hurts Palestinians. A Jerusalem city spokesman suggested Jewish building there would continue.


This is pretty shocking. I, for one, hadn't seen this coming. This Netanyahu is a madman - how could he possibly proceed with these plans. Is he so certain that lobby pressure will prevent words from being changed into actions?

Israel has one ally only: America. Without American support, Israel is going to end up in a very dangerous situation as America protects Israel against sanctions that enable the Israeli government in the lawless way it does.

To provoke your closest ally in such a way one must either be a very good poker player or plain crazy.

Out of curiosity, what do you think of the Iran sanctions?

Why should we be able to tell Israel what they can or can't do with building?

Maybe the goal is to get the world to turn its back or look like it turned its back on Israel for a reason?

According to this article the EU also note that this action is illegal.

Some people seem to be unaware that Israel does this, they take Palestinian territory and block importing and exporting, basically blocking the inhabitants of the shrinking Palestinian territory. They've been doing it for quite some time and have taken an alarming amount of control at different stages throughout the entire history of this new state. It's typical takeover strategy and they are wanting to secure a certain area of control without breaches in their local area before executing wider plans outside their borders.

It's like Israel knows better than anyone that there's going to be a major global war and they are basically giving the international community the finger and scrambling like sadistic warlords to get the full area under their security before this goes down

And it just so happens to be Israel who is doing their best to START that global war, coincidentally.

Madmen? Yes.

The EU deeply regrets?... Well, meee too. THANK YOU ISRAEL FOR TRYING TO INVOLVE THE ENTIRE WORLD WITH YOUR MENTAL COMPLEX.
