Last quote about Palestinian settlements

Emily Steel
We were just trying to follow the facts of our story. We really had to dig to get this information. There's a reason why these settlements were for so much money, was to keep these women from talking. There was a lot of resistance.feedback

Angela Merkel

As before, I see no reasonable alternative to the goal of a two-state solution. Both the Israeli and the Palestinian people have the right to live in peace and security and none of the other options can deliver that credibly. I am very concerned about developments in the West Bank, which are leading to an erosion of the basis for a two-state solution.feedback

Nickolay Mladenov - United Nations

The resolution calls on Israel to take steps 'to cease all settlements activities in the occupied Palestinian territory including east Jerusalem'. No such steps have been taken during the reporting period. The continued incitement to violence against Jews emanating from Hamas extremists and some Palestinian groups is unacceptable and undermines trust and the prospects for peace. Reactions by Hamas officials to terror attacks against Israelis have been particularly reprehensible and deserve condemnation.feedback

Uri Ariel

If a construction moratorium gains a foothold, tomorrow it will apply to the blocs too.feedback

Yishai Fleisher

Jews live in the settlements because they are the heartlands of the Bible and Jewish history. Many of us are also in the settlements to thwart the two-state solution, because we think it's wrong, unjust and dangerous.feedback

Talal Barazi

We are optimistic that the full exit of armed (fighters) from this district will pave the way for other reconciliations and settlements.feedback

Omar Shakir

The denial letter came as a shock, given that we have had regular access to Israel and the West Bank for nearly three decades and regularly engage Israeli authorities. Branding us as propagandists and fake human rights advocates puts Israel in the company of heavily repressive states like North Korea, Iran and Sudan that have blocked access for Human Rights Watch staff members.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media -- as I call it, the fake media in many case. And I think it's really a sad thing that he was treated so badly. General Flynn is a wonderful man. I think he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Michael Flynn – General Flynn – is a wonderful man. I think he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media, as I call it, the fake media in many cases. And I think it's really a sad thing that he was treated so badly.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Gen. Flynn is a wonderful man. I think he has been treated very, very unfairly by the media, as I call it, the fake media in many cases. And I think it is really a sad thing that he was treated so badly. I think it is very, very unfair what has happened to Gen. Flynn. The way he was treated and the documents and papers that were illegally, I stress that, illegally leaked.feedback

Sean Spicer

While we don't believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace, the construction of new settlements or the expansion of existing settlements beyond their current borders may not be helpful in achieving that goal. As the President has expressed many times, he hopes to achieve peace throughout the Middle East region.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I want Israel to be reasonable with respect to peace. I want to see peace happen. I would like to see a level of reasonableness of both parties, and I think we have a good chance of doing that. Every time you take land for settlements, there is less land left. I am not somebody that believes that going forward with these settlements is a good thing for peace. The embassy is not an easy decision. It has obviously been out there for many, many years, and nobody has wanted to make that decision. I'm thinking about it very seriously, and we will see what happens.feedback

Yousef Munayyer

Netanyahu seeks to shift the discussion in the U.S.-Israel relationship away from settlements and peace and back to Iran so that he can put off the difficult political decisions that would roil his coalition and put his rule in jeopardy.feedback

Donald J. Trump

There is limited remaining territory. Every time you take land for a settlement, less territory remains. I'm not someone who believes that advancing settlements is good for peace. But we are examining a number of options. Israel has a long history of condemnations and difficulties. I don't want to condemn Israel during my term. I understand Israel very well and have a lot of appreciation for it. Israelis have gone through very difficult times. I want peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and beyond that I think peace for Israel will be great for Israel, not just good.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Well, I want Israel to be reasonable with respect to peace. I want to see peace happen. It should happen. After all these years. ... Maybe there is even a chance for a bigger peace than just Israel and the Palestinians. I would like to see a level of reasonableness of both parties, and I think we have a good chance of doing that.feedback

Chrystia Freeland

Canada is very concerned … and we want to underline that this expansion of settlements is illegal under international law.feedback

Talia Sasson

The state of Israel, when we are talking about Israel, has no sovereignty over there. And the Israeli law is not applying there, according to the Israeli government and Knesset. So how come the Knesset could legislate a law that applies there? If the Knesset can legislate law that applies in the West Bank, why can't it legislate laws that apply in London or Paris?feedback

Suhad Bishara

This sweeping and dangerous law permits the expropriation of vast tracts of private Palestinian land, giving absolute preference to the political interests of Israel as an occupying power and to Israeli settlers. It violates the property rights both of resident and refugee Palestinians.feedback

Federica Mogherini - European Union

The law may provide for 'legalizing' numerous settlements and outposts previously considered as illegal even under Israeli law, which would be contrary to previous commitments by Israeli governments and illegal under international law. Should it be implemented, the law would further entrench a one-state reality of unequal rights, perpetual occupation and conflict. The EU urges the Israeli leadership to refrain from implementing the law and to avoid measures that further raise tensions and endanger the prospects for a peaceful solution to the conflict.feedback

Imad al-Mukhtafed

Having the legislation for settlements means that Palestinians will live in ghettos and apartheid areas. In other words, suffocating Palestinians. These areas are, according to all the international norms, known as pure Palestinian lands for the future Palestinian state.feedback

Federica Mogherini - European Union

Such settlements constitute an obstacle to peace and threaten the viability of a two-state solution. (It) would further entrench a one-state reality of unequal rights, perpetual occupation and conflict.feedback

Husam Zomlot

We need actions rather than words to strop the Israeli settlements expansion, which is violating the international law and killing the two-state solution.feedback

Eleazer Klein

There are more activists involved and more companies are being targeted. And the trend toward settlements has continued, in part because companies recognize the credibility of activists.feedback
