“If implemented, it would make a negotiated two-state solution, with Jerusalem as a shared capital, very difficult to achieve.”
This is the foreign secretary William Hague’s reaction to the Israeli cabinets decision to make more homes for Jews in the eastern part of Jerusalem.
Both the United States and the United Kingdom on Tuesday attacked Israel’s plans to construct thousands of new Jewish apartments in east Jerusalem, calling the move a “provocation” and saying it endangered the fragile peace process.
“We are deeply disappointed that Israel insists on continuing this pattern of provocative action. These repeated announcements and plans of new construction run counter to the cause of peace,” US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.
In a separate statement, British Foreign Secretary William Hague called the Israeli decision “a serious provocation and an obstacle to peace.”
“If implemented, it would make a negotiated two-state solution, with Jerusalem as a shared capital, very difficult to achieve,” he said. “We urge Israel to reverse this decision and take no further steps aimed at expanding or entrenching settlement activity.”

To what can we compare the statement of William Hague?
Was the set up of a Berlin wall in 1960, the way to peace in Europe?
Has dividing a national capital of any state ever brought “peace”?
Did the Turkish occupation of Northern Cyprus in 1974 bring peace to this island?
Did the division of the capital of Cyprus, Nicosia, bring a peaceful solution to this area of the World?
If the proposed solution of William Hague did not work in Berlin, nor in Nicosia, why do he feel it will work in Jerusalem?
We who believe in Biblical Zionism and the words of the Messiah, understand that Zionism and a united Jerusalem blocks the way for the coming of the final antichrist.
Do William Hague understand this issue?
Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Stand firm with Israel. Support a liberated and united Jerusalem, the capital of only one nation. The capital of Israel.
