Why Biden condemned Israel’s announcement on new building

Israel announced on Tuesday that it would build 1,600 new housing units in Ramat Shlomo, a religious Jewish settlement in an area of the occupied West Bank annexed to Jerusalem by Israel.

The announcement drew condemnation from Joe Biden, the US vice-president who is on a visit to the region partly to throw his weight behind US-brokered “proximity” talks between the Israelis and Palestinians that were announced just on Sunday.

In an interview with Al Jazeera from the occupied West Bank, Biden explains why he condemned Israel’s construction announcement (11 mar 2010).

    Joe Bidden is a politician. You need to mark his lip movements and the facial expression. He said that the right of Palestine to exist has to be acknowledged and then he went to elaborate on the right of Israel to exist, which the Arab States do not accept. They feel that the Jews are aliens in the Arab land.

    Now he has to condemn the Israel because they want the Arabs to convince that they are on their side. This is the political side of the game Uncle Sham always plays. Here they are backing the Israel, but can not do it directly at the displeasure of the Arabs. A slow brow beating game to
    temper the steel.

    Have a nice time. God bless.
