The Israeli claimed “illegal” homes approved in 2012 were conceded by “Palestinian” negotiators in 2008.
This fact is exposed in an editorial in Washington Post. The US major newspaper accuse the UN, the US and United Kingdom of double standards.
“The exaggerated rhetoric is offensive at a time when the Security Council is refusing to take action to stop the slaughter of tens of thousands of civilians — including many Palestinians — by the Syrian regime”.
Here is more from the editorial in Washington Post:
The criticism is appropriate, in the sense that such unilateral action by Israel, like the unilateral Palestinian initiative to seek statehood recognition in November from the U.N. General Assembly, serves to complicate the negotiations that are the only realistic route to a Middle East peace. But the reaction is also counterproductive because it reinforces two mistaken but widely held notions: that the settlements are the principal obstacle to a deal and that further construction will make a Palestinian state impossible.
Twenty-five years ago, Israel’s government openly aimed at building West Bank settlements that would block a Palestinian state. But that policy changed following the 1993 Oslo accords. Mr. Netanyahu’s government, like several before it, has limited building almost entirely to areas that both sides expect Israel to annex through territorial swaps in an eventual settlement. For example, the Jerusalem neighborhoods where new construction was announced last month were conceded to Israel by Palestinian negotiators in 2008.
Overall, the vast majority of the nearly 500,000 settlers in Jerusalem and the West Bank live in areas close to Israel’s 1967 borders. Data compiled by the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace show that more than 80 percent of them could be included in Israel if the country annexed just more than 4 percent of the West Bank — less than the 5 percent proposed by President Bill Clinton 12 years ago.
The exaggerated rhetoric is offensive at a time when the Security Council is refusing to take action to stop the slaughter of tens of thousands of civilians — including many Palestinians — by the Syrian regime. But it is also harmful, because it puts pressure on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to make a “freeze” on the construction a condition for beginning peace talks. Mr. Abbas had hinted that he would finally drop that demand, which has prevented negotiations for most of the past four years, after the General Assembly’s statehood vote. If Security Council members are really interested in progress toward Palestinian statehood, they will press Mr. Abbas to stop using settlements as an excuse for intransigence — and cool their own overheated rhetoric.

A lie is a lie, even if its told a million times.
A lie is a lie, even if all people in the whole World will be indoctrinated to believe it to be truth.
A lie is a lie even if men like Barack Hussein Obama and Ban Ki-Moon keep on repeating it on TV.
From 1948 to 1967, Pan-Arabian forces ruled in Eastern Jerusalem and in the Jewish districts of Judea and Samaria. The Arab control of these areas did neither bring Arabs to sign a “peace deal” with Israel, nor did it bring into existence a “Palestine state”.
Arabian occupation of the Biblical heartland of Israel have never, and will never result in a true and lasting “peace”. To grab land from Jews, have always resulted in more hostility, more hate and more pressure on Israel to accept defeat, and subordination to Islam.
This is the truth.
If you are a distributor of Arabian lies, you better stop and repent. Because liars are not going to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, prepared for all who obey the Messiah.
