Israel approves new Jewish settler homes in West Bank

Israel approves new Jewish settler homes in West Bank
Quote:Israel has approved the construction of hundreds of homes for Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank.

Officials said the decision was agreed by a ministerial committee on Saturday.

The announcement comes a day after the murder of five members of a family in a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.

An Israeli government official said the construction would take place in settlements that Israel expects to retain control of in any possible peace agreement with the Palestinians.

Palestinian officials condemned the move.

"This decision is wrong and unacceptable and will only create problems," said Nabil Abu Rdainah, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

A manhunt is continuing in the West Bank after five members of a Jewish settler family - including two children and a baby - were stabbed to death as they slept on Friday night.

Army radio reported that two other children had been spared, while a third had discovered the killings when she arrived home.

The attack on the Fogel family has been met with outrage in Israel and has shocked many Palestinians. Israel suspects the attack was carried out by Palestinian militants.

Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a "despicable" act.

An Israeli government spokesman said the construction move had been planned for some time but the BBC's Jon Donnison in Ramallah says it's hard not to see the timing of the announcement as linked to the killings.

The latest development comes as peace efforts between Israel and the Palestinians have ground to a halt.

US-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians stalled last year over the issue of Israeli settlement building.

Palestinians have refused all direct contact with Israel until construction is frozen.

Nearly half a million Jews live in more than 100 settlements built since Israel's 1967 occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

They are held to be illegal under international law, although Israel disputes this.

RE: Israel approves new Jewish settler homes in West Bank
Clearly the Israeli government have no plans to actually seek peace. If only the people, at least for the sake of their children and future generations, would stand up and as one united group say "enough". The extremists who don't want peace are few, and that IS on the Israeli side as well as the Palestinian side.

Quote:An Israeli government official said the construction would take place in settlements that Israel expects to retain control of in any possible peace agreement with the Palestinians.

What a reason to use. I personally believe it can't be too long before the international community holds the Israeli government accountable. And with such a government, armed with so many nukes, it probably won't be pretty.

oh they want peace. dont get them wrong....they just want to move wherever they want and ignore the consequences. they want noone to bother them as they take what is theirs.

This bloody mindedness is an psuedo-religious statism, not disimilar from nazi germany in the late 30s.
The irony isnt lost on me but im too disgusted to find it funny.
