United States ambassador accuses Palestinians of preventing peace

David Friedman

Israeli forces on Wednesday set up roadblocks and deployed into the occupied West Bank in search of Shevach's attackers, who fired at him from a passing vehicle. At least one terrorist had opened fire on his auto from a moving vehicle near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad in northern Samaria.

Settlement authorizations follow the drive-by shooting incident where father of six Rabbi Raziel Shevach was gunned down while travelling on Route 60 that crosses the West Bank from North to South near the wildcat outpost of Havat Gilad. The isolated community of a few hundred Israelis is located deep inside the West Bank. "Regulating [the status of] Havat Gilad and building there is the most painful price Israel can exact to deter terrorists from undertaking the next attack". During the meetings, he told the senior European diplomats that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas must condemn last night's terror attack in which an Israeli father of six was murdered.

During his eulogy, Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to hold a Security Cabinet meeting in light of the terror attack. Hamas praises the killers and PA laws will provide them financial rewards. Look no further to why there is no peace.

The Taylor Force Act threatens a dramatic cut in aid to the PA if it continues its decades-old scheme of compensating families of Palestinians convicted in Israel of murder and terrorism, and the families of slain terrorists.

The politician Betzalel Smotrich, who represents the Jewish Home party, was close to the scene, and mourned Rabbi Shevach as a "holy martyr", while the left-wing legislator Tzipi Livni was "pained along with all of Israel".

Israel captured the West Bank in the 1967 Middle East war.

He accused the Israeli government of carrying out "an expansionist plan based on the destruction of the two-state solution and undermining the chances of peace through settlements and the confiscation of as much Palestinian land as possible".

"With the Palestinians no willing to talk peace", he added, "why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?"

Around 200,000 Israelis live in east Jerusalem, which was also captured in the war and later annexed, and which the Palestinians seek as their capital.
