UN rights board calls for complete halt on Israeli settlement activity
UN rights board calls for complete halt on Israeli settlement activity
[ 19/01/2011 - 02:37 PM ]

NEW YORK, (PIC)-- A UN human rights board called Tuesday on world powers to force Israel to put a dead-end on peace-impeding settlement plans, and expressed sorrow over the world's lack of political will.

The board, which is interested in preserving the "inalienable rights of the Palestinians", said the future of the peace process is pending on balance, as settlement construction and Palestinian home destruction go on despite international calls for a complete freeze.

The board, formed in 1975, expressed sorrow over the lack of political will from the international community, which has taken no real steps to stop settlement expansion despite its unlawfulness under popular opinion.

The statement says Israel's allocation of 500 million dollars for settlement activity in 2012 implies clear intention to continue illegal policy, stripping negotiations with the Palestinians of any meaning, and threatening with a possibility of a two-state solution based on pre-1967 borders.
