Israel approves largest West Bank construction in 25 years

Against UN Resolutions and peace efforts, Israel has approved the construction of the largest illegal settlement in the West Bank in 25 years.

The Six-Day War was fought on June 5-10, 1967 between the Israeli regime on the one side and Egypt, Jordan, and Syria on the other.

The Palestinians want these areas - along with the Gaza Strip - for the establishment of a future Palestinian state.

Construction of settlements in the region is considered illegal under worldwide law.

According to the bill, seven percent of the PA budget, largely funded by American and European aid, is directed by Palestinian legislation to pay salaries and fund benefits to Palestinian terrorists imprisoned in Israel (during their imprisonment and even after their release) and to allowances for Palestinian families whose relatives have been killed or injured while perpetrating terrorist attacks.

He was released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m. and is scheduled to be arraigned on July 5 at Palm Beach County court. Both tires on the left side of the auto were flat, and police described fresh damage to the driver's side.

The Israeli bill is scheduled to be presented to the Knesset Plenum for preliminary reading this Wednesday and will then need to pass second and third reading before going into law.

Bennett reminded the naysayers that while they may disagree with his conclusion, most Israelis do not.

In part, that is because of missteps since the Six-Day War on Israel's part. Just as Jewish neighborhoods of the city extend far beyond the area that was Jerusalem in ancient times, so do Palestinian neighborhoods.

When Jews around the world pray facing Jerusalem, it is not the Shoafat refugee camp or the fix garages in Sheikh Jarrah that they are praying to and the idea that these areas have become "undividedly" Israeli is laughable.

Yet the analysis presented in Chernus' article as to why the creation of a Palestinian state has not happened is historically unbalanced, unfairly places the majority of the blame on Israel, and encourages a exclusively Palestinian narrative regarding the main obstacle to a solution. They live alongside some three million Palestinians.
