Israel was set to expand a settlement in the occupied Jordan Valley, a senior official said on Thursday, in defiance of Palestinian and international calls to freeze such activity.
The international community has repeatedly urged Israel to freeze all settlement activity in the occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem, saying it hampers efforts to achieve peace with the Palestinians.
Israel is not truly interested in peace; only in territory.
The stalling of true peace negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis has been very deliberate on the part of Israel.
By the time there will be an actual state of Palestine, if this continues, Palestine will be no larger than a postage stamp!
