EU Parliament Members call for marking goods from settlements World Council of Churches/Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme (EAPPI) - In order to let European consumers know what they are buying, goods originating from Israeli settlements on the West Bank should be clearly marked as such. Should the majority in the European Parliament take up the initiative of MEPs Arlene McCarthy, Helene Flautre, Sirpa Pietikainen and Eva-Britt Svensson, this can become a binding rule for all EU countries. 30/11/2010
Actor Liron Levo Pimps the Settlement Brand in Propaganda Film[The film] presents the settlements in the sort of romantic way they were envisioned just after the 1967 war ...what the film omits of course is all the horrendous history between 1967-2010: the theft, killings, religious hatred ...I can’t think of an Israeli film (or any film really) I’ve seen in a long time that is as ahistorical and fraudulent as this one. ao27/11/2010

Netanyahu Strikes Again in Har HomaHagit Ofran - Eyes on the Ground in East Jerusalem - Har Homa has become a symbol of Netanyahu’s refusal of peace, since as Prime Minister in 1998 he established this settlement. The plan for further extending Har Homa had been in existence for years. Pushuing it forward at this timing is not accidental. This is a huge provocation, a calculated attempt by Netanyahu to torpedo peace talks and also avoid blame, by forcing the Palestinians to be the ones to walk away from the negotiation table. 9/11/2010
Netanyahu Tests Obama, AgainM.J. Rosenberg - Foreign Policy Matters - While visiting Israel in March, Vice President Joe Biden delivered a speech that delighted the Israeli right and its US followers. Within hours, the Israeli government responded to Biden`s endorsement by announcing that it would be building 1,600 new settler units in Arab East Jerusalem. (...)Incredibly, last night Biden again made the same pledge of support to Israel, in the same words - and and, guess what, the Netanyahu government responded a few hours later by again announcing a mass constuction in East Jerusalem. And what would Obama do now? 9/11/2010
Chief Palestinian Negotiator: `Settlement drive is a call for immediate international recognition of the Palestinian State`. President Obama cautioned that Israel`s plan to construct 1,300 new homes in East Jerusalem could obstruct the pursuit of peace in the Middle East.
