Last quote about Palestinian settlements

Mark Dayan
It is possible that extra funds could be found for the NHS from any cancellation of Britain's EU membership fees – but whether or not these benefits will outweigh the significant staffing and financial costs Brexit may impose on already stretched services remains to be seen. The NHS and social care were already under pressure from tight funding settlements and growing staffing problems well before the EU referendum last year.feedback

Mahmoud al-Aloul

No doubt this is the democratic life we have promised our people. Unfortunately this joy is taking place in the West Bank alone because Hamas is preventing the people from practising this right in Gaza.feedback

Justice Haddon-Cave

In 2013, for example, [the man] purchased jewellery for her worth 400,000 Euros. The total value of her claim is now, therefore, £453,576,152. This comprises some 41.5 per cent of the total marital assets. I find that this figure is justified in all the circumstances.feedback

Justice Haddon-Cave

They slept in the same bed when they were together, had sex, went on holiday regularly together with the boys, and shared a joint bank account.feedback

Rosie Schumm - Forsters

Whether or not this settlement was indeed the biggest ever, as has been reported, is impossible to say. This is partly because an increasing number of high-net-worth couples are electing for private divorce and arbitration, where the proceedings and the details of the final settlement are kept entirely confidential.feedback

Deborah Jeff

This was a long marriage of 20 years, meaning the starting point for a settlement is equal sharing of assets. There has been a slight departure from equality in this case, most probably to reflect either what the husband had brought into the marriage or to recognise his exceptional contribution as an individual with a spark of genius. Today's judgment reinforces that as ever, London remains the place to divorce for the less wealthy spouse, where their perhaps, non-financial contribution is rewarded with the biggest dividend.feedback

Rosie Schumm - Forsters

This big-money divorce settlement represents yet another example of the English courts' unparalleled generosity towards the financially weaker spouse. This generosity is rooted in the fundamental principle that breadwinners' and homemakers' respective contributions to a marriage are of equal importance. With this in mind, London remains to be seen as the divorce capital of the world. For high net worth international couples the financial consequences of divorcing in this jurisdiction are so significant.feedback

John Hemming

Here we have a case involving a foreign billionaire which has been heard in a family court in London entirely behind closed doors ... Yet the British taxpayer pays the judge's wages and the wages of the court staff. They pay for every glass of water poured and every light switched on. Surely members of the public have a right to know something ... This isn't open justice, it isn't a transparent process and it isn't right.feedback

Mahmoud Abbas

This day is special because the Palestinian people are uniting behind the prisoners in their battle, their uprise against injustice. Today proves that, since 10 years, Gaza and the West Bank have united in one activity, today this has been achieved, which proves that the Palestinian people are united by struggle and resistance and are divided by politics.feedback

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

Shinzo Abe

It goes without saying that it is a matter of paramount importance for us to seek diplomatic efforts as well peaceable settlements of the issue. But at the same time, dialogue for the sake of dialogue is valueless and it is necessary for us to exercise pressure North Korea so that it comes forward and engages in this serious dialogue.feedback

Khalil Tufagji

When they make facts and reality on the ground, it means that we can't change reality on the ground.feedback

Manuel Hassassian

The Balfour declaration, 100 years ago, was devastating for our people. Yet Theresa May says she will be marking its anniversary ‘with pride’During his recent visit to Ramallah, Boris Johnson re-emphasised Britain’s long-standing support for the two-state solution and its position that illegal Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace. Last December Britain also supported UN security council resolution 2334, which reiterated the illegality of settlements.feedback

Stephen Clarke - Resolution Foundation

Britain's pay squeeze looks to have returned – six months earlier than expected by the Treasury's economic forecasters. And with further price rises expected later this year, and no sign yet of wage settlements responding, this pay squeeze looks set to be deeper and longer than expected.feedback

Erik Wemple

Maybe Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is desperate these days for comic relief, considering that his show is weathering a significant pullout of advertisers following revelations that he and his employer had reached settlements with five former female employees claiming sexual harassment or mistreatment. Whatever the explanation, please play the video above to hear the King of Cable News laughing as he finishes watching that terrible video of a man being manhandled and dragged off of a Chicago-to-Louisville United Express flight. “I shouldn’t be laughing, but it’s just so bizarre,” says O’Reilly.feedback

Erik Wemple

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is under fire based on a weekend New York Times article indicating that $13 million had been paid to five women who had received settlements after complaining about the host’s behavior. The pattern documented by these cases? “As an influential figure in the newsroom, Mr. O’Reilly would create a bond with some women by offering advice and promising to help them professionally, ” noted the newspaper. “He then would pursue sexual relationships with them, causing some to fear that if they rebuffed him, their careers would stall.”.feedback

Erik Wemple

Ever since the New York Times reported a series of sexual harassment settlements surrounding his workplace behavior, Bill O’Reilly has attempted to ride out the crisis through minimal acknowledgement. Sure, he issued a statement implausibly blaming the settlements — five of them, for sexual harassment and simple abuse — on his status as a big, fat target for complaints. On his program on Monday and Tuesday nights, however, the King of Cable News refrained from addressing the matter, an omission suggesting that O’Reilly has no good defense.feedback

Hanan Ashrawi

Israel is more committed to appeasing its illegal settler population than to abiding by the requirements for stability and a just peace. With regards to the new settlement for Amona residents, we would note that the Israeli prime minister made a commitment to the Amona settlers prior to President Trump laying out his expectations, and has consistently indicated that he intended to move forward with this plan.feedback

Benyamin Netanyahu

I made a promise that we would establish a new settlement. We will keep it today. There are a few hours until then and you will get all the details.feedback

Mahmoud Abbas

We count on the Arab leaders to represent the Palestinian interests.feedback

Nickolay Mladenov - United Nations

Overall, the last three months have seen a high rate of settlement-related activity, especially when compared to 2016, which saw tenders for only 42 [housing] units issued and some 3,000 units advanced over 12 months in Area C. Many advancements in settlements in the past three months will further sever the territorial contiguity of a future Palestinian state and accelerate the fragmentation of the West Bank.feedback

Nickolay Mladenov - United Nations

Many of the advancements that were made in the past three months will further sever the territorial contiguity of a future Palestinian state and accelerate the fragmentation of the West Bank.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

Riyad Mansour

Settlements need to be stopped, not only because they are illegal, but they are the main obstacle in the path of the 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

Erik Wemple

As noted in this space last month, a lawyer representing a former Fox News host said in a court proceeding that he’d received a subpoena in connection with a federal investigation of the network. That subpoena, said attorney Judd Burstein, was related to the sexual harassment scandal surrounding ousted Fox News chief Roger Ailes (Ailes has denied the sexual harassment claims). Burstein deduced that the authorities were “investigating whether Fox News violated securities laws by not reporting settlements to the Securities and Exchange Commission, ” he said in a hearing at the New York State Supreme Court.feedback

David Puth

The change in our reporting methodology brings our monthly data in line with the reporting conventions for BIS, trading platforms and central banks, allowing for more accurate comparisons with their data. This will present a clearer view of the external FX market.feedback

Howard Archer - IHS

With consumers becoming more cautious in their spending, the long anticipated slowdown in the economy looks to be materialising. The economy's persistent resilience since last June's Brexit vote has been largely built on consumers keeping on spending.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

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

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

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

Rula Maayaa

Nobody can legalize the theft of the Palestinian lands. Building settlements is a crime, building settlements is against all international laws. I think it is time now for the international community to act concretely to stop the Israelis from these crimes.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
