Netanyahu Claims Settlements Do Not Threaten Peace

author Tuesday January 08, 2013 13:36author by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC & Agencies Report post

Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, claimed that Israel’s construction and expansion of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, mainly in and around occupied East Jerusalem, “do not pose any threat to the peace process”.

The Israeli Prime Minister added that “the real threat to the world is not the Jews who are building in Jerusalem, but the Nuclear weapons Iran is developing”, according to Netanyahu.

He added that Israel is dealing with these “threats”, and called on the International community “to join Israel is this struggle”, the Palestine News Network (PNN) has reported.

Netanyahu further stated that “Israel appreciates the American efforts on the Iranian file”, and added that “the time has come to the rest of the world to wake up”.

Netanyahu also claimed that Israel is seeking real peace, and that Tel Aviv “is willing to provide concessions to achieve this peace”.

Two days ago, Netanyahu claimed that Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, continues to ignore what he called “all Israeli efforts to resume direct peace talks”, and accused Abbas of placing “impossible preconditions”.

The Palestinian Authority in the West Bank had to quit talks with Israel due to its ongoing violations topped by its ongoing invasions, arrests, the demolition of homes, and its ongoing settlement construction and expansion activities in direct violation of International Law and the Fourth Geneva Convention to which Israel is a signatory.
