@BreakingNews: US Sec of State Clinton: Israeli decision to add houses in E. Jerusalem ‘counterproductive’ to peace talks – AP”
Comment by Wickus:
It looks like this news about Clinton is so fresh that there is no link to a proper article. The closest I could find is the following from BBC:
Israel approves 1,100 settler homes in Gilo, Jerusalem

Israel has approved the construction of 1,100 homes in the Jewish settlement of Gilo on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

The move comes days after Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas called for full UN membership for a Palestinian state.

There has been widespread condemnation of the move by Palestinian and Western powers, including the EU and US.

Almost 500,000 Jews live in settlements on occupied territory. The settlements are illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this.

US-brokered peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians are deadlocked over the issue of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Also on Tuesday, three UN special rapporteurs called for an immediate end to the demolition of Palestinian-owned homes and other structures in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

Surely Israel feels nothing for the PA push for a state at the UNSC. Surely the world feels nothing for Israel. Surely Jerusalem will be divided sooner than we think. Surely this will get ugly…

  1. I think it has been ugly for a long time for Israel over there, ever since they got there, they have been attacked and not left alone. But God knows and God’s will, will be done.


  2. I could not agree more with both of you – it has been ugly it is ugly and it will grow even more ugly in the days ahead.

    If I did not know my G-D……..

    “We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds. “At the set time that I appoint I will judge with equity. When the earth totters, and all its inhabitants, it is I who keep steady its pillars. I say to the boastful, ‘Do not boast, and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horn; do not lift up your horn on high, or speak with haughty neck. For not from the east or from the west and not from the wilderness comes lifting up, but it is God who executes judgment, putting down one and lifting up another… Psalm 75
