Bibi: Palestinians Manufacturing Crisis

The PLO is threatening to go to the UN Security Council over Israel’s announcement on Sunday of tenders to build new homes east of the "green line."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the Palestinian claim that new construction in Judea and Samaria constitutes a violation of the agreements reached at the start of the current, ongoing peace negotiations.

Netanyahu accused the Palestinians of attempting to manufacture a crisis. He said they knew well at the beginning of the talks that Israel accepted no limitation on construction beyond the “green line.” The prime minister emphasized that Israel is living up to all the agreements that had been reached before the start of the new talks.

Netanyahu was speaking at the Sunday meeting of the Likud ministers, but his statement was publicized only Sunday night, in response to angry Palestinian reactions to the plan to construct 1,859 new housing units in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem.

According to AFP, the PLO is threatening to go to the UN Security Council over Israel’s announcement on Sunday of tenders to build new homes east of the “green line.”

“The PLO is considering a mechanism to go the Security Council and the UN against these new Israeli decisions, especially as there are international resolutions that consider settlements illegal,” senior PLO member Wassel Abu Youssef said.

According to Peace Now, which lovingly monitors Jewish activities in Biblical Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, at least 1,031 plots were offered by Israel’s housing and construction ministry in the land where Abraham, Isaac and Jacob once herded their flocks, and that successful bidders would be able to start construction shortly.

Late last week, PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi said that Israel is not interested in the two-state solution, rather in only creating “greater Israel.”

“The Israeli occupation is exposing its true intentions of creating ‘greater Israel’ rather than a two-state solution,” said Ashrawi. “The Israeli government has proven once again that it is not a partner for peace nor a member of the international community that respects the global rule of law.”

Ashrawi said the Israeli announcements “are the latest affront directed at U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the U.S. administration’s efforts,” which led to resumption of Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations in July.

Only one question remains, then: if the talks are off, can we have the released killer prisoners back?

  1. the Palestinians have no right to the land !

  2. Alan Cornet says:

    The situation merely reflects the folly of actually sitting down and attempting to resolve issues with the so called "Palestinians". Israel NEVER should have agreed to release
    killers, thugs, and terrorists. If anyone still believes that Sec. of State Kerry and
    President Obama, still has Israel's back and best interests at heart, I have some swamp land to sell you along with a bridge or two.

  3. I have said many times, and will say it again.
    Bibi fell for a sucker deal.
    He knew quite well that these talks are a fake.
    Abbas has no intention of making peace. He is going all ot to blame Israel for the failure which happned before the talks started.
    Bibi should have given his word that he will release these savages, ONLy once Abbas signs a peace agreement with Israel, without any pre conditions.

    Abbas said he will talk peace, once his savaages have been rleased.

    I hope that Bibi will not release any more murderinmg bastard savages, until a peace agreement has been signed.
    But then again, like with arch terrorist Arafat, he signed a peace agreement, was awarded a Nobel peace prize, and immediately, started the Intifada which resukted in hundreds of Israelis and Palestiniand being killed.

    Any peace of paper that has a wrtten peace agreement, is woth used toilet paper.
    Nobody can trust Abbas and his cronies.

  4. the plo. is there any combination of letters more filthy than that.

  5. That is why I say:Death penalty for terroristkillers of civilians and innocent children. Once dead they can not be pressed free by taking Israelis hostage under threat of killing them. Furthermore they will never again commit a heinos act like the one they hav been arrested for. Executing them is a must. Execution by pelleton!

  6. My former comment was ment in reply to comments like Alan Cornet's.

  7. God be with Israel.
