What follows are three articles condemning Israel for the regulation law for many reasons, chief among them is that they make the TSS harder to achieve. Europe together with Obama set the parameters of such Peace agreement which itself was impossible to achieve. The problem is with them for supporting the PA rejection of anything remotely possible and the PA incitement to violence. Their criticism really pisses me off.
This is troubling for the international community, who is wondering if she should trust Israel when Israel says it’s ready to discuss with its neighbor, the Palestinians, to reach an agreement on the two-state solution,” ambassador Hélène Le Gal told Army Radio in an English-language interview.
“The fact that Israel is accumulating facts on the ground, makes [reaching] a solution more difficult,” she said
“The confidence we had in the Israeli government’s commitment to the two-state solution has been profoundly shaken,”
“Only a negotiated two-state solution can bring durable peace and is in Israel’s interest. It remains a fundamental tenet of our Middle East policy.”
“The Secretary-General insists on the need to avoid any actions that would derail the two-state solution,” the statement said, adding that all core issues should be resolved between the parties through direct negotiations on the basis of relevant Security Council resolutions and mutual agreements.
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely in response to the criticism of the regularization law:
“The settlement law that the Israeli parliament passed this week reflects a just legal principle. The underlying premise behind the critics of Israel is that this is occupied Palestinian land. This premise is incorrect. Israel has both historic and legal rights to this land and the law reaches the right balance between the rights of the Jewish families to their homes and the right of the owners of these plots of land to get compensation. The legal principle of compensation is known in all western legal systems. And this principle that Israel adopted this week creates the right justice between the Palestinians and the Jewish families.
