Settlers hail U.S. ambassador for saying settlements part of Israel

In other news, the papers reported on preparations in Gaza to receive the Palestinian government of Rami Hamdallah, which is expected to arrive there on Monday following rise in efforts to reunify the West Bank and Gaza Strip and end their 10-year-long division following the 2007 Hamas coup.

The Trump State Department's reaction was both swift and harsh.

"I think the settlements are part of Israel", Friedman said, in comments that seem at odds with decades of U.S. foreign policy.

"They (Israelis) are only occupying 2 percent of the West Bank", Friedman said in an interview with the Israeli news site Walla.

"[Friedman's comments] should not be read as a shift in United States policy", she said.

Texas at Iowa State
Texas coach Tom Herman gave credit to Iowa State's defensive game plan and acknowledged his team's mistakes and shortcomings. The teams combined for 568 total yards and 37 first downs, which is about one team's total in a typical Big 12 game.

The US regards Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian West Bank and East Jerusalem as illegal and an obstacle to the achievement of peace between the Palestinians and Israelis.

"I think that was always the expectation when [UN] resolution 242 was adopted in 1967", he said.

"So there was always supposed to be some notion of expansion into the West Bank, but not necessarily expansion into the entire West Bank".

"I think that's exactly what Israel has done".

"His latest statement about Israel "occupying only 2% of the West Bank"... is not only false and misleading but contradict [s] worldwide law, United Nations resolutions and also the historical USA position", Erekat said, adding that "Israel is internationally recognized as the occupying power over 100% of Palestine".

WAFU Cup 2017: Black Stars humiliate Eagles
After Ghana's 4-1 defeat of Nigeria, there were media reports that Enyimba had started talks with the coach, who is also an assistant manager in the main Black Stars' team.

The US ambassador in Tel Aviv has angered Palestinians with a comment downplaying Israel's 50-year occupation of the West Bank, the second such spat in a month.

"We'll try to get it done right, not done fast", Friedman added.

"The idea was that Israel would be entitled to secure borders", he added.

Nevertheless, roughly 500,000 Israelis now live on more than 100 Jewish-only settlements built on these territories since 1967. Israel maintains civil and military control of the entirety of Area C, which makes up roughly 60% of the West Bank, and control of all the borders. "Obviously its clear what is going on here, 54% of American foreign aid goes to Israel, 26% of that allows Israelis to buy weapons from Israeli suppliers and the list just goes on and on", Dankof said.
