Israel to Build Biggest Settlement in 25 Years in the West Bank

Israel has advanced plans for more than 3,000 new homes in West Bank settlements this week, despite United States President Donald Trump's call to hold back on such projects as he seeks ways to restart peace efforts between Israel and Palestine.

Indeed, less than three weeks ago, Israelis and Jews around the world celebrated 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem during the Six Day War.

A letter calling on Israel to end the military occupation of the West Bank and lay the groundwork for a Palestinian state was delivered on behalf 1,800 American rabbis and cantors to the Israeli embassy in Washington DC.

Lieberman said "I am aware more than anyone else of the construction needs in the settlements, and I am also well aware of the restrictions and the pressure that come from the global political community", he said.

The Palestinian population of the city is much larger today than it was in 1967.

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. But they have not opted for Israeli citizenship for the most part and, clearly still see their neighborhoods as "occupied" by Israel rather than liberated by it. Many Palestinian neighborhoods have suffered neglect and underfunding.

And when we talk about Jerusalem's importance for the Jewish people, where are we talking about?

Israel would later sign historic peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan, but to this day its conflict with the Palestinians remains unresolved.

Nowhere does he reference Israeli initiatives - at Camp David in 2000 and at Annapolis in 2008 - which could have produced a Palestinian state had Palestinian leaders not walked away.

Sears released a statement Wednesday saying that they removed their "Free Palestine" shirts from its online marketplace.
