Fair Policy, Fair Discussion

Biden angered by Israeli decision

Vice President Joe Biden is begining a five day Middle East tour to discuss the current status of peace negotiations. On the same day that the Vice President met with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Haaretz reported that Israel’s Interior Ministry has approved the construction 1,600 new homes inside East Jerusalem.

A few hours after emphasizing the ‘unshakeable’ ties between the U.S. and Israel, the Vice President issued an unusual public rebuke to the Israeli Government on the issue of the illegal settlements. Biden is planning to meet with the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank who had agreed last week to indirect talks with the Israelis prior to this latest announcement.

This expansion into Palestinian territory continues a repeated diplomatic pattern by the Netanyahu Government of publicly declaring the desire to renew peace talks while systematically undermining the talks through official state policy. The lack of good faith gestures on the part of the Israelis has suceeded in its aim to stalemate the latest round of talks, while simultaneously embarrassing the Vice President ahead of his visit with Arab leaders.

  2. There is one truth never been said or high lighted from 1948 till now, because western media twisting and propagandists keep the media silent for so long of “Israeli expansion into Palestinian territory”.

    This not knew this not Biden problem this not first and last one this is going as as far as 1948 the difference is some of you wakedup from their trauma that they should support the only democracy in ME and they should support the chosen people.

    Its the west blindness of the reality for more that 60 yers men/
