Is Israel trying to start another WAR?

That is what one would think, based on this news story:

Report: Israel to build settlement in West Bank

Israel radio reports that Israel has given preliminary approval for the construction of a new Jewish settlement in the West Bank.

It would be the first new settlement established by Israel in several years.

The report says a committee has given the approval for the construction of 20 housing units in Maskiot and that Defense Minister Ehud Barak is slated to grant final approval soon.

Calls to Israeli spokespeople requesting comment were not immediately returned Thursday.

The news is certain to anger Palestinians just as the sides try to work out a final peace agreement by the end of the year.

Israel has committed not to establish new settlements in the West Bank, which the Palestinians want to include in a state.

Not only is the building of a new Israeli settlement in the West Bank a violation of the international agreements that allowed Israel to form in the first place, but the peace process can only move forward if Israel agrees to remove any Jewish settlements in Palestinian land that were established earlier.

The Zionist dream of having an independent Jewish homeland has already been fulfilled. But some extremists among the Jews don’t know when enough is enough. And they, along with all their fellow Jews, will ultimately be the losers if they are not stopped from stealing any more Arab land. The Arabs will surely strike at Israel and set back peace in the Middle East by several decades. And the United States needs to stop blindly supporting Israel and put firm conditions on any future aid it may offer any nation in that part of the world.

  1. I approved your comment, Thenonconformer, even though I personally think it ridiculous. I would like to note that my statements about Israel and its Arab opponents come from a SECULAR viewpoint. Not a Jewish one, a Christian one, a Muslim one, or even an athiest one. SECULAR means NEUTRAL on religion. And the standard I go by is the Golden Rule, a form of which is found in all religions and even practiced by most non-religious people. It makes no difference whether Israel oppresses Palestinians today or Arabs attempted to conquer Jews in 1948. None of those aggressions are tolerated here, period.

    Therefore, your comment is dismissed as biased and of no value.

    AND I TOTALLY AGREE.. HAD YOU READ MY SITE IN FULL.. OTHER PEOPLE DISAGREE. I BELIEVE THAT ARABS AND JEWS HAVE THE SAME FATHER ABRAHAM, ARE BROTHERS, AND THEY SHOULD ALL TRY TO LIVE IN PEACE TOGETHER ALWAYS.. FURTHER MORE THERE IS NO NEW TESTAMENT SUBSTANTATION FOR ISRAELS RETURN TO THE PROMISE LAND OR ANY ANY CLAIM BY THEM TO IT NOW TOO. ALL OF THE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS FALSE CALIM TO THE PORMSIED LAND OF ISRAEL ARE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. bUT NOW THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST OWNS IT ALL AND HE WILL COME BACK TO CLAIM IT.. yes I do allow dialogues on the matter too.
