the American President Donald Trump , it is not international law. It focuses its middle East policy in the manner of Rambo's new – according to the Motto: Allowed is what pleases me. So the Jewish settlements not violated according to the latest reading of the Americans in the occupied West Bank, per se, against international law.
Why, for decades, several US administrations, represented a legal opinion on the settlements suddenly "inconsistent" should be, is not explained. "We recognize the reality in the field", so the simple justification of the foreign Minister, Mike Pompeo.
After the relocation of the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and the recognition of the annexation in 1967 of Syria conquered Golan heights by Israel, the US President shows Once again whose side he is. As a mediator between the Israelis and the Palestinians have disqualified the United States. The announcement that this step is to encourage the repeated delays in the middle East peace negotiations and to lead the of Trump announced "Deal of the century", Testament to a refusal to face reality.
Trump rushes of violation of international law to international law.
Trump determines what is right. And in this case, who gets right. There are 600'000 Jewish settlers, the feel since trump took office, already encouraged to build new apartments in that area, where about three million Palestinians live. Since Obama has doubled the settlements, this year there was a further substantial increase.
After the political transformation of the United States, there is no more reason for restraint. The Europeans keep the settlements, more illegal, take care of, neither the settlers nor the political leaders in Israel. It may even be the case that the European court of justice in its ruling in the preceding week, products from the settlements should be labelled as such and should not have to bear the label "Made in Israel", the date of the American Declaration has to be determined.
Trump probably wanted to be Benjamin Netanyahu again a service. Back in April, Trump's election campaign support for him has done, he has declared the Golan annexation shortly before the ballot for right – also a breach of international law.
The farewell to the Two-state solution
Netanyahu is fighting for his political Survival. He clings to the Position of the Prime Minister, in order to have a better position if he is indicted for corruption in up to three cases. After the announcement of the US decision did not Netanyahu, however, to repeat his campaign's announcement that Israeli sovereignty should be on the settlements extended. His political rival, Benny Gantz was even faster, the U.S. returns to welcome u-turn. However, he pointed out that agreements had to be, which served the security interests and peace promoted.
Who the government alleges, for the formation of Gantz until Wednesday at midnight, or whether it is to new elections – the third within a year – comes: With this US positioning are more facts to have been created in Israel, domestic political pressure to produce. A Two-state solution, so in addition to Israel, a state for the Palestinians, no longer appears in the face of now more than 200 settlements in the West Bank to be practical.
