Settlement hype, not ‘activity’, reaches new high

September 7, 2016 | Ahron Shapiro

The significance of the issue of construction within Israeli settlements in the West Bank has long been overemphasised and exaggerated in international diplomacy, but White House and State Department criticism of Israel last week over construction in its West Bank settlements may just have set a new high-water mark for settlement hysteria.

Saikal is betraying his usual inability to comprehend that US support for Israel might conceivably be based on principle and shared interests.
