MAJOR SHIFT: Pompeo Announces U.S. No Longer Considers Israeli Settlements “Inconsistent With International Law”
Today, the United States adopted an important policy that rights a historical wrong when the Trump administration clearly rejected the false claim that Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria are inherently illegal under international law.
This policy reflects an historical truth – that the Jewish people are not foreign colonialists in Judea and Samaria. In fact, we are called Jews because we are the people of Judea.
In the past one of Trump’s best days in politics was when he made a political statement in support of Israel’s control of the Golan Heights.
See Trump’s Support for Israeli Sovereignty over the Golan Heights and the Blessing of Eisav (Esau) for details.
