Washington (AFP) - The White House on Monday bluntly warned Israel that its occupation of Palestinian land must end, dismissing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's efforts to take back controversial campaign pledges.
In unusually tough language that underscores the fracture in relations between Washington and Israel, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said "an occupation that has lasted for almost 50 years must end."
McDonough criticized Netanyahu's pre-election pledge to block the creation of a Palestinian state -- the supposed end goal of decades of fruitless peace talks -- and he questioned Netanyahu's efforts to undo the damage.
"We cannot simply pretend that those comments were never made, or that they don't raise questions about the Prime Minister's commitment to achieving peace through direct negotiations," he said.
"The Palestinian people must have the right to live in and govern themselves in their own sovereign state," he added.

The MSM is still trying to make Obama look good after last week’s utter humiliation.
Obama better read Exodus and what the Jews were promised.
Yes, the Arabs must stop occupying Jewish land.
Over their dead body.
Hmmmm, well if obama’s chief of staff said it that’s it then. I hope Bibi didn’t bust a gut laughing at this imbecile.
The Muslims better get off of God's land then.
The Biblical Borders of Israel as Set by God Almighty
Obama is so livid that Netanyahu won that he can no longer hide his core anti Zionism. His anti Israel policies and his bizarre “deal” that will ultimately allow the lunatic Iranian mullahs to obtain nuclear arms, will create huge , irreparable rifts in the Democratic Party. It will cost the Democrats the 2016 election.
The occupation of the White House by the Failed President Obama must end!
Not, take your Obamahole out of the White House, cretin.
And yiur creepy wifr, too.
That state is Jordan. Though the last time they tried to assert themselves there and in Syria, they suffered Black September.
Give the Palestinians a chunk of Syria. I hear it is up for grabs.
The enemy of our friend is in the White House.
Those particular ARABS that are in those “territories” that Israel has under military control and the other one which is under Hamas control ... were already there (and descendants, now) when Israel militarily took control of the land from Jordan and Egypt, in the 1967 War.
And being that they are living there and Israel took military control, Israel is required to take care of civilian control ... or ... delegate that control, as they have done with the Palestinian Authority.
And then, if we go back to the 1948 war, Israel just about BEGGED the ARABS to stay in Israel and NOT FLEE the land of Israel, like the Arab Armies told them to do!
The ARABS who did stay in Israel Proper are now FULL CITIZENS of the nation of Israel. They make up about 20% of the population of Israel proper.
Here’s what Netanyahu just said about them, today ...
Netanyahu Apologizes for Remarks on Arabs, Says I am Prime Minister of All Israelis
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday night apologized for controversial comments he made on the eve of elections and if he caused offense to Israels Arab population.
I know that the words that I said some days ago offended Israels Arabs. I did not intend at all that this would happen. I am very sorry about that, he said when hosting representatives from Israels minority communities at the prime ministers residence, including the leadership of Israels Arab communities.
Netanyahu emphasized to his audience: I see myself as the prime minister of each and every one of you, of all of the citizens of Israel, without distinction over religion, race or gender. This is how it was, and how it will continue to be. As the audience enthusiastically applauded his comments, Netanyahu continued, I see all of Israels citizens as partners in building the State of Israel, which will be strong and united, for the benefit all of its citizens.
What “occupation “?
You won’t see those borders in place until the Messiah of Israel arrives and sets them up himself ... :-) ...
And that's why Obama hates him.
The areas being referred to are the ones under military rule and law and which were captured during the Six Day War. And then there is the real big problem area that is semi-autonomous under Hamas rule, which no one wants that government to stay in place!
Basically it’s known by the public as the West Bank and Gaza, or you might hear the West Bank referred to as Judea and Samaria. OR ... they might just be referred to as the “Territories”.
Whose idea was it to put all of these severely retarded college kids in charge of our government, anyway?! I never voted for any of these ***holes.
