Warren says making Israel aid conditional on settlement building is `on the table`John Bowden - The Hill - Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is emerging as the leading candidate in the contest for the Democratic party nomination, said that she was open to making aid to Israel conditional on whether the government ceases settlement building in the West Bank. "Right now, Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements, [but] that does not move us in the direction of a two-state solution," Warren responded when asked what her stance was on aid and settlement-building. "It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table," she said, before repeating: "Everything is on the table."

Rewarding the Israeli Attackers in the Settlements Amira Hass - Haaretz - Just as I write this column Monday afternoon, Israeli soldiers are preventing olive harvesters from the Palestinian village of Burin from accessing their grove to harvest olives. I repeat: their land, their olive grove, their trees. The grove is adjacent to the spot where last Wednesday masked Jewish Israelis attacked volunteers from Rabbis for Human Rights, including 80-year-old Rabbi Moshe Yehudai, with rods and rocks. The volunteers had joined the olive harvesters from Burin in the hope that their presence would ensure the Palestinians’ safety. The rabbi’s assailants had come from the Yitzhar settlement and its outposts. That is also where those who attacked Israelis soldiers came from. It’s a system – violence carried out with the army’s full backing and with the aim of expanding, on a daily basis, the area from which Palestinians are driven out. [bz]22/10/2019

Settler terrorists attack their soldier marionettesGuy Hirschfeld - I am ashamed for them but also ashamed of them - I mean the marionettes in uniform. Are you not ashamed to look in the mirror, dear marionettes? What do you tell yourselves? Two days ago the terrorists from Yitzhar attacked you and your friends and today, like disciplined puppies, you simply follow his orders?

They brought with them a lot of friction. [ak]21/10/2019
