        Settlement construction censures continue pouring

        Date:Dec 21,2012

        Paris on Thursday adopted that language as its own, with the French Foreign Ministry issuing a statement saying “the unprecedented resurgence in settlement projects is a provocation that further undermines the trust needed to resume negotiations and leads us to question Israel’s commitment to the two-state solution.”

        The French statement “strongly condemned” Wednesday’s approval of 2,610 housing units in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Givat Hamatos, calling the decision “illegal” and saying “it is all the more serious because it amounts to the creation of a new settlement which, once completed, will isolate the Palestinian neighborhood of Beit Safafa from the rest of east Jerusalem. It therefore threatens the viability of the two-state solution whereby Jerusalem is destined to become the capital of both Israel and Palestine.”

        Ashton joined the fray, expressing dismay over the Givat Hamatos decision, and saying it would “cut the geographic continuity between Jerusalem and Bethlehem.”

        The same type of language was used earlier this month when the Europeans blasted the announcement of planning for development in E1 between Ma’aleh Adumim and Jerusalem, saying that project would cut the geographic continuity between Bethlehem and Ramallah.

        Ashton, hinting broadly at some other sort of possible EU reaction, said that in light of Europe’s “core objective of achieving the two-state solution, the EU will closely monitor the situation and its broader implications, and act accordingly.”
