German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel warned Thursday that continued Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank endangers the possibility of a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinians and could lead to war in the Middle East, Reuters reported.
We are concerned that unlimited construction of settlements will make a two-state solution impossible and could increase the risks of conflicts in the Middle East, including possible war, Sigmar Gabriel said during a news conference at a meeting of G20 foreign ministers in Bonn, Germany.
Despite being one of Israels strongest allies, Germany has taken a more critical stance against Israel of late, particularly in regards to Israeli settlement policy.
On Monday, the Haaretz daily reported that Germany cancelled an upcoming summit in Jerusalem between the Israeli and German governments due to Angela Merkels unhappiness with a law passed in the Knesset last week legalizing outpost settlements built on private Palestinian land, as well as the announcement of some 6,000 new homes in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since the inauguration of US President Donald Trump in January.

It’s good to know that the Germans can take time out of their busy schedule to offer helpful advise to people who neither want or appreciate it.
Some things will never change, like European antisemitism
Germany is such a contradiction at times....
they DO help Israel in certain ways....
and then we get this kind of meddlesome “threatening” style statement???
I do wish to give full credit for the good things Germany does but trying to prevent a free people from providing homes for their children is NOT HELPFUL (see? I can use more “diplomatic BS” terminology than even the German spokesperson did, ha!)
“not helpful,” Germany.
a very very nice tactful way of saying, “Please try thinking next time before you speak, it helps you know....
Does anyone find it ironic that the Germans are telling Jews where or where not to live?
Since when does Germany have a dog in this fight?
Traditionally Peaceful German talking about war.
No in Europe is bothered by THAT.
PS to Germany spokesperson,
the “2 state solution” you are clinging to was KILLED DEADER THAN A DODO over 10 years ago.... by the Moslem terrorist murder gang you want Isarel to give her land to
they rejected the 2 state solution at least 3 times when Jerusalem (stupidly!!!!!!!!) offered it to them
and they continue to raise their children to hate Christians and Jews and want to kill them all
you are either living in the past something terrible (get with it, buddy! read a few news reports about Moslem terrorism and the PLO/PA and Hamas and Hezbellah with its 100,000 bombs pointed at Tel Aviv and Jersualem right now)
or else you are a reversion to your country’s 1940 past.
I cannot know which but, either way.... think before you speak next time. The “2 state solution” you talk about died years ago. The only real “2 state solution” is to recognize that there is already a Moslem state in ‘palestine’ .. its called Jordan.. and it was CREATED for the Moslem ‘palestinians’ TO BEGIN WITH!
and it occupies 3/4 of the land already.
that’s the “solution” if there is ever to be one, NOT what you spoke about...that can never happen now, sorry.
PS: Maybe Jerusalem should start issuing statements against Germany building any more houses for its people in Bavaria?
“Does anyone find it ironic that the Germans are telling Jews where or where not to live?”
Ding ding ding we have a winner. Fortunately Germany is spending every extra dime on Refugees and their brand of socialism. Not so much the Military which in the past was to back up their natural tendency to exterminate people.
Are the Germans going to send troops to Israel? They won’t last long if they do.
The Germans need to shut up.
Well the German Military only use Broomsticks ,no rifles ,so they’re not going to war
isreal should listen, Germans are the master race after all, and have a distinguished history of helping out the joooooos
Israel is at war with satan in the world..more is coming..
Actually, any notion of a “two-state solution” was killed in 1948 when the Arabs (not yet “Palestinian”, take note) attacked Israel.
Another soon-to-be-muslim country finds another reason to slam the Jews.
Good point. Why is it their business? They need to worry about the arabs coming into their country.
The two-state “solution” is not.
What if they all farted at once?
