Palestinians urge U.S. to block new Israeli settlements

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas blames Israel palestinian boy dies gunshot
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has appealed to the U.S. to block a new Israeli plan to build hundreds of additional homes in Jewish settlements, a top negotiator said Friday, warning the move could put U.S.-led peace efforts in peril.

Israel officials have said the planned construction of new units in the West Bank and east Jerusalem will be announced next week, just as Israel is set to release 26 long-serving Palestinian prisoners under a pledge it made at the outset of peace talks last summer.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has previously issued similar construction announcements to blunt hardline criticism of prisoner releases. It will be the third of four planned releases.

In a late-night meeting Thursday with U.S. envoy Martin Indyk, Abbas “asked for U.S. intervention to stop the Israeli government from issuing new settlement decisions in order to save the peace process and the American efforts,” top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said.

The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem and the West Bank, areas captured by Israel in the 1967 Mideast war, as parts of a future independent state. They say that Israeli settlement construction is a sign of bad faith. With more than 550,000 Israelis living in areas captured in 1967, the Palestinians say time is quickly running out on hopes to divide the land.

The planned Israeli announcement will almost certainly spark a crisis in the peace talks, which resumed last July after a nearly five-year break. Under heavy pressure from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, the Palestinians were forced to drop a demand for a halt in settlement construction. In exchange, Israel agreed to release 104 of the longest-serving Palestinian prisoners it holds.

The new construction plans include 600 new homes in Ramat Shlomo, an enclave in east Jerusalem, and roughly 800 additional homes in the West Bank, according to an Israeli official familiar with the plan. The official said Netanyahu has ordered the Housing Ministry to make preparations for a formal announcement next week. He spoke on condition of anonymity because the plan has not yet been finalized.

Kerry has urged the Israelis to show restraint. Recently, he said the construction raises questions about Israel’s commitment to peace, and last month U.S. pressure forced Israel to abruptly halt another settlement plan. The European Union has also urged Israel not to announce any more construction, saying it would hold Israel responsible for any breakdown in the talks. There has been no U.S. or European reaction to the settlement plans.

The Israeli official said that Netanyahu is well aware of the international opposition, but had no intention of reversing course. Any construction, he added, would be a year or two away because of additional bureaucratic approvals that are required. Netanyahu spokesman Mark Regev declined comment.

Erekat did not say how the Palestinians would respond to the expected Israeli announcement. He said officials advised Abbas to resume a Palestinian campaign of joining U.N. and other international organizations in the absence of a peace deal.

“This is the only response. There is no use with this Israeli government,” he said.

Israel objects to this strategy, saying it is an attempt to circumvent the negotiating process. In particular, it fears the Palestinians will seek membership in the International Criminal Court and try to press war crimes charges against Israelis.

Abbas has made no decision, and top Palestinian officials are expected to meet on Sunday to discuss the issue.

Palestinian officials acknowledge that Abbas appears to have little choice but to continue the negotiations until an agreed-upon nine-month period ends in April. They say that Abbas is wary of being blamed for the failure of the U.S.-brokered talks.

Much could depend on Kerry’s progress. The secretary has invested a great deal of personal prestige in the negotiations, repeatedly shuttling to the region and appointing senior officials to work closely with the sides. Indyk is a former ambassador to Israel, and retired Gen. John Allen, a former U.S. commander in Afghanistan, has helped draft proposed security arrangements.

Kerry is hoping to arrange a “framework” peace agreement by April, and depending on the progress the sides make, could soon be presenting his own proposals, Palestinian officials say.

A framework deal would address all core issues of dispute — including the borders between Israel and a future Palestine, security arrangements, the fate of Palestinian refugees and conflicting claims to the holy city of Jerusalem. Erekat has said that if such a deal can be reached, the Palestinians would be willing to extend talks for another year in order to complete a formal peace treaty.

    I am not surprised and I don’t expect the greedy Zionist state to work towards a peaceful two state solution.
    As the region become more and more kaotic , Israel will become more vulnerable to military, suicide, and economical attacks, which will have have a snowball effect on their reinvigorated , emboldened and unified enemy. Interesting times ahead. My money will not be on Israel.

      Why should Israel go around giving land to people that hate them, to establish some other failed arab corrupt state

      • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

        Unfortunately, Israel has to withdraw from some land to ensure it remains a democracy. I think that the West Bank should be partitioned with Jordan.

        • cook

          First and foremost, the Jordan Valley should be annexed. Apart from Natanyahu, all Likud members have just voted on this (JPost).

          Then, we move on the Area C. Specific places where there’s a concentration of palestinians are left out, while everywhere else is annexed. 50,000 Arabs can be absorbed and given citizenship overall, shouldnt do harm.

          Areas A and B are left to negotiate with Jordan.

    Christianity – under Jewish attack…
    Christianity is historically in conflict with Jewish values and the Christian New Testament replaces the Jewish Old Testament. The Christian apostle Paul even writes in the Thessalonians (2:14-15) about “the Jews,who both killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and drove us out. They are not pleasing to God, but hostile to all men”. But the ranks of Christianity have been corrupted, materialism and pro-Imperialist support on behalf of the Church has tarnished the legacy of Jesus Christ, the freedom fighter. And so-called convert Jews have entered the ranks of Christianity, even its leadership. The Jew and Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger in France was even contemplated as one of the candidates to become the new pope. On a visit to Australia, Cardinal Lustiger was quoted in The Weekend Australian, 4-5 August 2001, p. 9:

    “I was born Jewish and so I remain […] For me, the vocation of Israel is bringing light to the goyim. That’s my hope and I believe that Christianity is the means for achieving it.”
    This quote of Judaism using Christianity as a means for Israel is corroborated by Rabbi Martin Siegel, who in New York Magazine, January 18, 1972, p. 32, said:
    “I am devoting my lecture in this seminar to a discussion of the possibility that we are now entering a Jewish century, a time when the spirit of the community, the non-idealogical blend of the emotional and rational and the resistance to categories and forms will emerge through the forces of anti-nationalism to provide us with a new kind of society. I call this process the Judaization of Christianity because Christianity will be the vehicle through which this society becomes Jewish.”

    • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

      The Hebrew bible doesn’t speak about the messiah being the son of God and such ideas are contrary to its monotheism. The messiah must be accepted by the whole nation and the world. The messiah must be a descendent of King David on his father’s side. If there was a virgin birth then Jesus wouldn’t be.

      • Hind Abyad

        Jesus never said he was son of God, he reffered to God as Father to all,
        there are a variety of expressions people use reffering to God in Arabic.
        Yassuo’h el Massih is Jesus the Messia, Western Roman church
        says Jesus is the son of God, not in Eastern Ortodox church.

        • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

          Ever hear of the Ebionites? They were Jews who believed that Jesus was the Messiah but not the son of God and no virgin birth.

          • Hind Abyad

            Are you one?

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            No I’m not. They don’t exist. The early Jewish Christians and gentile Christians persecuted them and they disappeared. Muhammad had a relative who was one and that’s where he got his ideas about Jesus from.

          • 5thDrawer

            I heard they lived alongside the Ivorians ….. in almost perfect harmony …. except when a fifth got into it. 😉

        • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

          My best friend growing up was Greek Orthodox and they believed that Jesus was the son of God.

      • YeUx

        For Me is good enough that Jesus Our Messih is accepted by the rest of the World, But You selfishly are referring to the Messiah for the Jews and not to the Messih of the World! So what makes You so special? Are You the chosen ones and the rest of the world is what? You are fascist and ridiculously funny, since when are You special? What makes You special? You poop, You bark and drool, so?

        And is clearly that Jesus was killed by the Jews because He was all against what Jews believed, He (Jesus) said:

        “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” (John 8:44-47)

        Jesus is continuing to severely criticize the Jewish pharisees and temple officials. He is making a distinction between his teachings and theirs.

        When Jesus says that they belong to their “father, the devil” is he referring to the devil as a person who is their physical father? Certainly the pharisees and Jewish priests were not all brothers, so Jesus cannot be referring to their physical father. He is using the word “father” – translated from the Greek word πατήρ (patēr) – allegorically.

        You guys haven’t change, for Me Christianity was created, by Jesus Himself without any other origin than from heaven, NO relationship whatsoever with Judaism, If for some other confused individuals this is not accurate, ¡so be it! You follow Your dog and I will follow My Star.

      Yes, they divide up Allah (SWT) God from one (person) into three (persons) with their Trinity. There is debate in Islam as to how to consider Christians versus their belief Christianity due to the Holy Quran being very much against Trinity.

        Oh … no Trinity .. but 12 Imams hiding somewhere … 😉
        I suppose the ‘Father, Son, Holy Spirit – ALL ONE – is a tough thing to get a mind around. Just think of most Christians not quite getting it either, then you could consider them in a more secular light and make some laws together for a modern human.

      If you are going to quote from the New Testament, please quote fully the parts as follows:
      14 For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus. For you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, just as they did from the Judeans 15 who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men.” (1 Thessalonians 2:14-15) The word Judeans is a more accurate and historical translation that agrees with the preceding word Judea.

  • man-o-war

    Ethnic cleansing of Palestinians continues. Israel has found a way to cleanse the area while staying under the radar. Discriminatory policies regarding building permits in the occupied territories, segregated road system, unequal access to natural resources, settlements placed strategically to prevent a contiguous Palestinian state from becoming a reality. One set of laws for Illegal Jewish settlers and a different set of laws for the Palestinians. Arrest and imprisonment indefinitely without trial, house searches and sometimes seizure without a warrant. The best part is that the Palestinians in the occupied territories can’t vote for who their masters will be.

    Even in Israel the Palestinians are discriminated against. Segregated school system with unequal funding, “Israel’s Education Minister has demonstrated that the separate Jewish and Muslim school systems have nothing to do with preserving an autonomous space for Jewish and for Arab culture, but rather – plain segregation.”

    • cook

      Who wrote that, the Mecca Times? lol!

      There are no “palestinians” in Israel, there are Israeli Arabs who speak Hebrew and go to the same universities and join the army as anyone else. And I know for a fact that if Israel forced Arabs to study in Hebrew from elementary school, you would be the first person to complain.

      • man-o-war

        No, from an article by Rivka Cohen and published on Haaretz. I’m pretty sure “Israeli Arabs” consider themselves Palestinians, but keep living in your zionist fantasy land. How did an Iranian Baha’i become such a fervent Zionist?

        • cook

          Haaretz, lol why dont you just put dog shit in my letter box. Anyone will tell you theyre left wing traitors who should go back to their Qurans 🙂

          Sorry abdul, Israeli Arabs are an integral part of Israel. Former president Katsav was sent 7 years prison by an Arab judge, thats the extent in which they have power.

      Define ethnic cleansing. Their population has increased like 100 times over. Apparently Israel isn’t very good at ethnic cleansing.

      • man-o-war

        Wikipedia:

        Ethnic cleansing usually involves attempts to remove physical and cultural evidence of the targeted group in the territory through the destruction of homes, social centers, farms, and infrastructure, and by the desecration of monuments, cemeteries, and places of worship.

        Does that sound familiar? As you already know, ethnic cleansing is not only relating to genocide.

        • Guest

          Sounds more like the Trans-Jordanian occupation of the Old City of Jerusalem from 1948-1967 when all Jews were thrown out of the Jewish Quarter and all the old synagogues were desecrated and destroyed there including the Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives. How would the Arabs feel if the same thing was exactly done to them in Jerusalem after 1967?

          • man-o-war

            Sounds terrible, I hope things like that never happen again. Ok, I guess that makes what’s continuing to happen today (29/12/2013) to the Palestinians kosher.

          • Hind Abyad

            It was War not Peace -Same thing happened when Israel took East-Jerusalem Sharon conveniently became “housing Minister” those fanatic setters were permitted to occupy Christian Real Estate then confiscate them.
            BTW. Is there any Olive tree stil standing on Mount of Olives?

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            Yes but many of the gravestones from the Jewish cemetery were taken during the Jordanian occupation and used to make latrines, and Jordan built a hotel over some that remained.

        • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

          Yes. It sounds like what the Jordanians did in Jerusalem. What the Palestinians are doing on the Temple Mount. What they did to Joseph’s tomb during the second intifada. What they did in Hebron in 1929. It doesn’t sound like what Israel does when anyone, Jew or Arab, builds a structure on land without a permit.

          • man-o-war

            Just this year a Christian cemetery was vandalized in Jerusalem, smashed headstones and graffiti. Muslim cemeteries are always being vandalized in the occupied territories. Restrictions to the Temple mount are always being placed on the Palestinians. Restriction of movement also makes it difficult to even visit holy sites. Have you heard of the Jewish farmer that converted the Ain al-Zaytouna Mosque near Safad into a cow shed. Have you heard of the Mamilla cemetery ( museum of tolerance) in Jerusalem? Hundreds of headstones destroyed and a parking lot was built on top of it, including a lavatory. Destruction, occupation, and vandalization of Christian and Muslim religious sites is an ongoing problem in Israel and the occupied territories. To deny this is to live in a fantasy land.

            “It doesn’t sound like what Israel does when anyone, Jew or Arab, builds a structure on land without a permit.”, Its easy to make such a bold statement when Israel is the one handing out permits and its discriminatory practices when it comes to building permits is well known.

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            I am always absolutely disgusted when any cemetery is vandalized. However, those are the acts of individuals and such individuals are punished in Israel when caught. Jordan allowed and even encouraged what happened on the Mount of Olives. Furthermore, for centuries, Jews had to pay money to the Muslims in Silwan to not vandalize the graves.

            Also, Israel does allow building permits to Arabs. There is some economic and individual discrimination but it is a new state and doing much better in that sense than its neighbours. It is a flawed democracy and many are fighting for equality from all backgrounds.

          • man-o-war

            I too am disgusted when any cemetery is vandalized. “When caught” they are punished. Great!Jewish settlers are allowed and even encouraged to illegally occupy and build in the occupied territories, with the occupation comes vandalism and discrimination. Therefore, Israel may not be condoning the vandalism and destruction of holy sites, but they sure as hell bury their head in the sand. Somehow when the Israelis do the vandalism its just some acts by crazy individuals. How convenient!

            The Mamilla cemetery in Jerusalem was destroyed and vandalized under the watchful eye of the state.

            I’m sorry for what happened to the Jews centuries ago. Why is Israel allowing history to repeat itself? However, this time it’s them committing the injustices that were perpetrated against them in the past.

            One last comment, my father’s village (Muslim) in Lebanon has an ancient cemetery on the premises and many believe that some of the graves are Jewish graves. They have been left alone and even cherished as a piece of history. Nobody knows how old they are, the carvings on the stones have long faded. The place continues to be a cemetery for the village. I really enjoy being there and dreaming about the past.

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            Err excuse me, the state isn’t encouraging people to vandalize anything and ‘settlers’ aren’t automatically people who vandalize things anymore than Arabs are automatically people who blow up buses.

          • man-o-war

            I never said the state is encouraging people to vandalize. “Jewish settlers are allowed and even encouraged to illegally occupy and build in the occupied territories” and this is enabling the vandalism. Does that mean every settler is a vandal? No, it doesn’t.

            “The Government of Israel does not currently permit U.S. citizens with Palestinian nationality (or even, in some cases, the claim to it) to enter Israel via Ben Gurion International Airport. Many travelers have been sent back to the U.S. upon arrival. Others have been allowed to enter Israel but told they cannot depart Israel via Ben Gurion without special permission, which is rarely granted. Some families have been separated as a result, and other travelers have forfeited expensive airline tickets”

  • man-o-war

    Ethnic cleansing of Palestinians continues. Israel has found a way to cleanse the area while staying under the radar. Discriminatory policies regarding building permits in the occupied territories, segregated road system, unequal access to natural resources, settlements placed strategically to prevent a contiguous Palestinian state from becoming a reality. One set of laws for Illegal Jewish settlers and a different set of laws for the Palestinians. Arrest and imprisonment indefinitely without trial, house searches and sometimes seizure without a warrant. The best part is that the Palestinians in the occupied territories can’t vote for who their masters will be.

    Even in Israel the Palestinians are discriminated against. Segregated school system with unequal funding, “Israel’s Education Minister has demonstrated that the separate Jewish and Muslim school systems have nothing to do with preserving an autonomous space for Jewish and for Arab culture, but rather – plain segregation.”

    • Heraclitus

      Who wrote that, the Mecca Times? lol!

      There are no “palestinians” in Israel, there are Israeli Arabs who speak Hebrew and go to the same universities and join the army as anyone else. And I know for a fact that if Israel forced Arabs to study in Hebrew from elementary school, you would be the first person to complain.

      • man-o-war

        No, from an article by Rivka Cohen and published on Haaretz. I’m pretty sure “Israeli Arabs” consider themselves Palestinians, but keep living in your zionist fantasy land. How did an Iranian Baha’i become such a fervent Zionist?

          • Heraclitus

            Lies. No Lebanese speaks of Israel like this, you are sunni balestinian.

            Palestine never existed, it was the British Mandate. Typical muslim tactic of denying history

          • Hind Abyad

            I speak like that! I heard stories that haunted me.
            You arrogant Supremacist Snow White..yes, i am very learned ,more ouside the famity woumb.. than my cousins, i read more than i cooked, dont now how to cook, last time i went to Beyrouth, one spoiled cousin called the maid from the kitchen,

          • Heraclitus

          • Hind Abyad

            Snow White is *** Zionism the most peacefull movement.*** not you….
            Zionists are supremacist extremists Rigth Wing the Eternal Likud government founded by same that blew up King David Hotel.

          • Heraclitus

            Just come to Israel and see how peaceful it is for yourself. I bet your madrasa never tells you that its the Jews that turned an inhabited desert into what it is today, and is why so many arabs immigrated there.

          • Hind Abyad

            What madrassa you still insulting me? This is a western term for islamic shools in Afganistan..

          • Heraclitus

            ahahhaha just a joke xD its funny right =)

          • Hind Abyad

            No, because its the same word for a school in Arabic in a convent or a Monastery.

          • Heraclitus

            Well, we say madrasi (ok fine maybe in foos7a madrasa)

          • Hind Abyad

            The i is nothing when you give a speech in Classic Arabic..

            Yes .. the overworked ‘we’ … as El Supremo uses it.

          • man-o-war

            Yes, it was an insult. He is great at making snide comments. I would say he is pretty bigoted as well.

            Some examples of his bigotry:

            “Anyone will tell you theyre left wing traitors who should go back to their Qurans”, regarding an Israeli news outlet that goes against his views.

            “Sorry abdul, Israeli Arabs are an integral part of Israel.”, He assumes my name is Abdul because I posted a comment that was pro Palestinian.

          • Hind Abyad

            I’am revolted when i read his slimy comments, he said he’s a philosophy student in Israel..more like Niccolò Machiavelli student.

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            Eternal Likud government??? What are you on?

          • Hind Abyad

          • Heraclitus

            Im not insulting you, LOL if you think this is me insulting then you should see me on CNN

          • Hind Abyad

            You said i’m Sunni balestinian.That’s insulting because you’re a racist

            bigot i’m Christian .

          • Heraclitus

            So why dyou support the terrorists so much?!! Israel came and helped you from these scum

          • Hind Abyad

            I don’t support terrorists.

          • Heraclitus

            PLO are terrorists through and through

          • Hind Abyad

            The guy that founded Likud was chief of Irgun he introduced terrorisme
            in the holly land.. There was no PLO ..

          • Heraclitus

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            Hypocrite!!! He expressed an opinion. You ignore facts and restate your baseless claims which are full of holes and have no basis in fact.

          • Adam Yonatan Ben Yoel

            I think it’s more to do with your opinions. Stop misusing the word racist.

          • 5thDrawer

            I agree … ‘racist’ is hugely overworked in MANY places to describe what isn’t.

          • man-o-war
