You will always hear from our “so-called friends”, in the “only democracy in he Middle-East” – Israel, that they are always up for negotiations and are up and ready to have a two state solution. But in reality, the right-wing politician’s words are mere lip service. In actual reality they are taking away land from the Palestinians everyday while the World doesn’t say a word.
Here we have Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime-Minister of Israel stating that they wouldn’t even give “two meters” of land to the Palestinian Authority even though under international Law that land belongs to the Palestinians, not Israelis.
Jerusalem Post reports:
Israel is not planning to unilaterally hand over portions of Area C in the West Bank to the Palestinian Authority, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Likud ministers on Sunday.
“There won’t be any transfer of territory to the Palestinians, not 40,000 [dunams or 10,000 acres], not 10,000 and not even one meter,” Netanyahu said on Sunday.
He spoke after Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan publicly charged that the Office of the Coordinator for Government Activities in the Territories and the Civil Administration is continuing work on a plan to transfer 10,000 dunams of territory in Area C to the Palestinian Authority.
But Netanyahu told the Likud ministers that he would not execute any such plan.
Likud ministers Ophir Akunis, Ze’ev Elkin, Haim Katz, Israel Katz and Miri Regev raised the issue with Netanyahu at the weekly cabinet meeting.
