Once again, the Obama administration has refused to recognize Israel’s right to build in Judea and Samaria and appears to detest the right of Jews to live anywhere as it protests Israel’s latest announcement over construction of new homes.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest called Israel’s latest approvals of construction in Judea and Samaria a “significant expansion of settlement activity” and said the development “poses a serious and growing threat to the viability of a two-state solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“We are particularly troubled by a policy of retroactively approving illegal outposts and unauthorized settlements,” Earnest said. “I think we have been quite unambiguous about the concerns we have on this issue.”
