Giv'at Ze'ev

The Government of Japan has just issued a statement on renewed settlement building by Israel on the West Bank.

We at NCF have echoed their concern - most particularly with regard to renewed construction at Giv'at Ze'ev settlement.

We need an end to the cycle of bloodshed – which feeds on the construction of settlements just as it feeds on the killing of Israelis in Jerusalem, or the killing of Palestinians in Gaza.

The cycle of revenge and hatred continues to gain momentum and must now be broken.

This is so depressing - it is almost as if the Israeli Govt, as distinct from the Israeli population, want to continue the proxy war to justify their political and ideological ends.

They appear to totally ignore the failures of their past actions and policies, but I think that this is calculated to prod and antagonise the Palestinians.
