The Palestinian Authority is applying great pressure on the US to have President Biden call for a construction freeze in the settlements during his visit to Israel and the PA, Kan News reported on Tuesday morning.

According to the report, the White House is taking the request seriously and Biden is considering making a public declaration that settlement expansion endangers the two-state solution and calling on Israel to freeze construction in Yehudah and Shomron.

Since Biden entered office, his administration has fixated on the issue of settlements and the “huge issue” of settler violence, even placing it on par with the Iranian nuclear threat.

During a visit by then vice-president Biden to Israel in 2010, an announcement of 1,600 new housing units in the Chareidi Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo caused a major crisis in relations between Israel and the Obama administration.

In a move fraught with symbolism, the Jerusalem Municipality approved the construction of 108 new housing units in Ramat Shlomo two months before Biden began his term as president.

  1. It’s bad enough that this inane senile presidential piece of garbage is completely destroying the US of A. We don’t need his “help” in Israel at all.

  2. All we need is one top ethical hacker to hack into Biden’s teleprompter and erase the part about a settlement freeze and put in instead a demand that the Yehudah Shomron area be built up as quickly as possible.

  4. What a heinous evil חוצפה!!! It’s so absolutely not sleepy Joe’s business how Israel runs its affairs.
    In fact if sleepy joe doesn’t like it:- How about stay away from Israel!!!

  5. Rashi says that kefirah of Eretz Yisrael being given to Klal Yisrael is similar to kefirah of בריאת העולם. We need to be מחזק ourselves with this אמונה and be proud of our mesorah not worry למה יאמרו הגויים on everything.

  6. He has wreaked staggering amounts of damage to his country. Is there anyone with even a smidgen of intellect that has confidence he can guide another country to a positive effect? I would rather have a cartoon character in office than anything the Democrats have inflicted on us.

  7. There is still a galus if the Torah was the spiritual. Just taking about how much you liked the chulent doesn’t help anyone. We are saying that progress is being made in regards to the development of Palestine suffering, and they are. The propaganda is they are all the criminal and have juicy lives and that there will hurt the innocent meritouse Torah people, so let them rot. But just because you like this doesn’t mean it is true. In fact if you like it then probably it’s not true. To say that we are the Torah people if one thing to say we are the meritouse people is against the Torah as it says in the pasuk clearly
    “Lo bsidkoseaichem” “ki im brishas hagoyim” a whole thing against saying that its prohibited in the bible. To say that they are having juicy lives and allowed to prosper
    Is wrong. That do not have anything close to the economy that is in there face can’t go to no beach can not have a vote a border a company a hotel a pride a nation a mercy a cherry tree a olive tree a nice dress a flight a Egypt a nothing. To say that
    They are all criminals is also not true and it makes them. Criminals think before they commit a crime not just blow themselves up or use a knife on five guns if they would of been half Jewish they would of blown all of TelAviv by now without an army just from civilians that get arrested and prisoned. Chulent shabbat

  8. @moeisrael: LOL!

    @Benephraim: Yes, the best would be if Eretz Yisroel completely ignored him. There is no reason for us to worry about every little thing that a goy says about us.
