According to U.S. President Barack Obama, Israel is occupying and settling Palestinian land.
Obama, addressing the UN on Tuesday, said the Palestinians must end incitement and recognize Israel, but that Israel has to end the “occupation.”
The city of Jerusalem, which the Palestinian Authority (PA) is demanding as the capital of a Palestinian state – ethnically cleansed of Jews – is the ancient Jewish capital. Also in dispute is Judea and Samaria, the biblical Jewish homeland, referred to as the “West Bank.”
Never in history was there a Palestinian state; rather, the territory in dispute was liberated by the IDF during the 1967 Six Day War after being occupied for 19 years by Jordan.
Israel is eager to negotiate a peace agreement with the PA with no preconditions. Watch this video and hear the American leader state, nevertheless, that Israel must end the “occupation.”
