Israel criticizes Palestinian stance on settlers

Published: 01.27.14, 09:46 / Israel News

Israeli officials say the Palestinian refusal to allow any Jewish settlers to remain in a future Palestinian state shows they don't want peace.


Monday's statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office follows a flurry of condemnations sparked by an Associated Press report Sunday that Netanyahu believes all Jewish settlers should have the right to remain in their homes in a future Palestine.


In an accord, settlers not inside Israel were expected to be removed. But an official told the AP that Netanyahu believes there is no reason a future Palestinian state should be "ethnically cleansed."


The concept was immediately rejected by the Palestinians and the settlers themselves. It set off an angry rebuke from Netanyahu's coalition partners.


The statement said the Palestinians' "extreme and reckless" reaction showed their true face. (AP)
