Trump Envoy David Friedman Slams Palestinians for Preventing Peace

Israeli forces on Wednesday set up roadblocks and deployed into the occupied West Bank in search of Shevach's attackers, who fired at him from a passing vehicle.

Settlement authorizations follow the drive-by shooting incident where father of six Rabbi Raziel Shevach was gunned down while travelling on Route 60 that crosses the West Bank from North to South near the wildcat outpost of Havat Gilad.

Naturally, Hamas were pleased - and this was reported by the mainstream media. The 35-year-old later died of his wounds. "I have also ordered an examination of the possibility of legalizing Havat Gilad and making it a community among the other settlements in Judea and Samaria".

Several Israeli ministers have called for more settlement construction in response to the shooting of an Israeli settler last night, according to Haaretz. "Hamas praises the killers and PA [Palestinian Authority] laws will provide them financial rewards", Friedman wrote on his Twitter account. "Look no further to why there is no peace", Friedman said.

Ahmed Majdalani, member of the Executive Committee of the PLO, said that the central council will discuss the cancellation of Palestinian mutual recognition with Israel, stop security coordination and stop the implementation of Palestinian agreements signed with Israel. "This is not the path to peace!" he tweeted.

Dylan Farrow's powerful 'Time's Up' statement against Woody Allen
Greta Gerwig worked with Woody Allen in 2012, but even she, our current indie feminist darling, went the route of saying as little as possible when asked directly about that decision on Sunday.

Hundreds of people attended on Wednesday the funeral of last night's terror victim, Rabbi Raziel Shevach.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who delivered a eulogy at the funeral, was interrupted by repeated calls for "revenge" by mourners, to which he responded, "the only revenge is to keep building". Bennett called on the government to officially recognize the area as sovereign Israeli territory.

Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war. Some 400,000 Israelis live in settlements in the West Bank, which is home to 2.2 million Palestinians.

The plan represents a last-ditch attempt by the Defense Ministry to save a majority of the homes after the High Court rejected a compromise proposed by the residents to cut off the "problematic parts" of six homes that only jut onto private Palestinian land by a matter of meters.

Around 200,000 Israelis live in east Jerusalem, which was also captured in the war and later annexed, and which the Palestinians seek as their capital.
