Concerned at daily advancement of illegal #Israel settlement enterprise in occupied #WestBank, East #Jerusalem


As I leave Cairo after constructive meetings with the Egyptian Foreign Minister and the new Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, I remain increasingly concerned by the near-daily advancement of the illegal settlement enterprise in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem. This week alone has seen Israel move forward on plans for 770 settlement units in Gilo, demolitions of 19 Palestinian structures in East Jerusalem, efforts to re-establish an outpost that had previously been dismantled in 2012, and the issuance or reissuance of 323 tenders which would bring new construction to sensitive East Jerusalem areas.

These moves have been unequivocally condemned by the UN, the US, the UK and the EU and others in the international community.

Israel’s systematic policy of expanding settlements, designating land for exclusive Israeli use and preventing Palestinian social and economic development is destroying prospects for a viable Palestinian state.

    What a Crock of lies.
    The same U.N that thinks Jews have no history on the Temple Mount to appease the Arabs.
    The U.N is upset about Jews living in their ancient Capital of Jerusalem that was never in history the Capitol of any Arab country.
