Israeli Spy David Satterfield: Israel Should Cease Settlement Activities, Reconsider Wall

INTERNATIONAL PRESS CENTER-PALESTINE: "Satterfield: Israel Should Cease Settlement Activities, Reconsider Wall

GAZA, January 13, 2004 (IPC + Agencies)-- The United States Deputy Under Secretary of State for Near East Affairs, David Satterfield, said on Monday that Israel should halt construction of settlements and reconsider the construction of the wall (Apartheid Wall) it is building on Palestinian-owned lands in the West Bank.

Speaking at a conference on the 1967 Arab-Israeli war in Washington, Satterfield called on the Israelis to stop construction of settlements on the occupied Palestinian territories and criticized the Apartheid Wall, being built around and through West Bank cities, towns, villages and refugee camps.

He explained that “Israel’s friends believe that settlement activities must come to an end for they harm interests of both Israelis and Palestinians.”

The U.S official expressed appreciation for the individual political initiatives launched unofficially by Israelis and Palestinians, particularity the recent Geneva Accord and Nosaiba-Ayalon Document.

Both Jewish settlements and the Apartheid wall being built by Israel on Palestinian-owned lands have created demographic and geographic problems for the Palestinian population in West Bank and Gaza Strip, affecting the future Palestinian state, proclaimed by the US-sponsored "Road Map" peace plan."
