The United States responded on Monday to news that Israel was planning to expand its state land and launch a new building project in the West Bank. The IDF on Sunday conferred the status of state land on 4,000 dunams in the Gush Etzion region, thus ending the civil administration’s investigation into the possibility that parcels were private Palestinian property. [Snip] "We have long made clear our opposition to continued settlement activity," a State Department official said. "This announcement, like every other settlement announcement Israel makes, planning step they approve and construction tender they issue, is counterproductive to Israel´s stated

Seizing land every time the arabs launch a terror attack is the only strategy that will ever work. Its land for peace. Break the peace, lose land. Every time.

The left hasn’t figured out that the West Bank belongs to Israel.

Jimmy Carter is stupid. Obama is cunning. History will have to decide which is worse.

Agree on Carter, but you’re giving Baraq too much credit. He’s just the frontman.

Meanwhile, the WH seizes US lands through the National Monument Program, making them off limits to economic use, and in some cases, making it more difficult for Border Patrol to do its job.

Yes, that is an excellent strategy (and its Israel’s land to begin with, anyway, so my vote would be for them to just go ahead and Build Build Build their little country...and stop playing nice-nice and trying to make any necessary warfare so “humanitarian’ all the time... no other nation in world history have ever defended itself successfully that way..none..)

Maybe someone can tell BHusseinO that his Koran mentions the Land of Israel some ten times ... and makes it clear that Allah has given it to the Jews. Further, there is no verse in the Koran even hinting that the land of Israel belongs to anybody other than the Jews...

This is true even though there are some very anti-Jewish and anti-Christian verses in the Koran. The Koran makes it clear that while Allah had criticisms for some Jews for their failures to fully obey him, that nevertheless Torah/Bible is God’s Word...and that despite the shortcomings of some/many Jews in those days (and I would submit, always)...that the Earth belongs to Allah and Allah has the right to give any part of it to any people he wants, and that Allah has given the Land of Israel to the Jews. This has to do to a lot with the Sovereignty of Allah, and not what percentage of Jews are faithful in any particular place or time.

No truly faithful Moslem should be trying to fight Allah’s will in respect to anything.........Islam is supposed to be Submission to Allah’s will.

Just saying...

Pearls Before Swine:" Meanwhile, the WH seizes US lands through the National Monument Program, making them off limits to economic use,

This administration wants Israel to give up its soverignty and its land (800 acres)for peace.
This administration wants to protect the soverignty of Ukraine or go to war
This administration wants to protect the soverignty of Iraq or go to war
But his administration wants to give up the soverignty of it own southern border with Mexico. Does this make sense ?
Or is this administration at war with its own people ?

I’d like to see Israel take the Temple Mount and rebuild.

While Jews can’t pray on our holiest site, and police make sure no Israeli flags are taken up, Muslims have no problem bringing in and waving an ISIS flag on the Temple Mount.

How about Israel expand to the lands God promised Abraham?

That's the only way Israel will have peace in the Middle East. Send the Egyptian and Jordanian Arabs (disguised as Palestinians) to their Ancestral Homeland in Saudi Arabia- where their Muslim brothers will show the Hospitality for which Islam is acclaimed.

The White House has a strategy for dealing with Israel, but ISIL and the Russians? Not so much.

Can you only imagine the technological and medical miracles Israel could produce if it (1) had those vast lands as resources and (2) didn't have to use such a large proportion of its present resources to defend itself?

What have the Arabs given us? Oil. And insanity personified as terrorists.

If Psalms 83 occurs soon, which I believe it will Israel will not only control the West Bank they will control the East Bank of the Jordan River. Perhaps even Petra (Buseira) to the south).

Kerry is a fool. Many Christian supporters of Israel are watching for Psalms 83 to occur soon. If our reading of the Bible is correct, the current controversy will not be about the West Bank, but primarily control the East Bank of the Jordan River (Jer 49, Isaiah 15, etc.). Perhaps even Petra (Buseira) to the south).

G-d's promise to Israel will stand. Regardless of what the feckless Obama administration thinks.
