Palestinian President Abbas returns triumphantly from U.N.
Question of the Day
New figures from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics show that Mr. Netanyahu actually has slowed settlement construction over the past year. The latest figures found that Israel began construction on 653 new settlement homes in the first nine months of 2012, down 26 percent from 886 housing starts during the similar period a year earlier.
Israel insists that the Palestinians are responsible for the deadlock, accusing them of refusing to recognize Israel as the Jewish homeland and the Palestinian media of glorifying violence and promoting anti-Semitic caricatures.
Mr. Netanyahu said Mr. Abbas‘ speech at the United Nations, in which he accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” and omitted any reference of the Jewish connection to the Holy Land, was filled with incitement and hate.
“This is additional proof that this is not a dispute over land but a denial of the existence of the state of Israel,” he said. “As long as the Palestinian Authority educates the younger generation to hate, how is it at all possible to talk about peace?”
