JERUSALEM -- Israel said Sunday it would withhold more than $100 million in tax revenue this month from the cash-strapped Palestinian Authority, the latest reaction to last week's U.N. vote recognizing the Palestinian territories as a "nonmember observer state."

--snip--

U.S. officials voiced disappointment over the measures Israel has taken in response to the U.N. bid. The Obama administration had asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to avoid taking punitive steps that might weaken Abbas, whom it sees as a moderate Palestinian leader.

American and Israeli anti-settlement groups are particularly alarmed by the possible resuscitation of the proposed E1 settlement project, a controversial development on the outskirts of Jerusalem that would partly divide the West Bank and complicate efforts to create a contiguous Palestinian state.

--snip--

During a conference in Washington on Saturday, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called the government's settlement announcement "the worst slap in the face of a U.S. president."

Agree 100%. With authority... comes responsibility. As simple as that.... And it cuts both ways.

Wizi uko wa aina nyingi tu!!! Na hao wamezoea kuiba, wazayuni(zionists) walianza kwa kuiba nasaba(uyahudi), wakaingia katika kuiba ardhi nk.

Halafu wanasema Israel ni jewish state badala ya kusema Israel ni kwa ajili ya Israel citizens. Sio kila muisrael ni jew.

Israel kwa kujifanya Apatheid state inajimaliza yenyewe.

Kwa hiyo Israel wanakataa two state solution? Kitendo cha UN ni kusogeza ukaribu wa hiyo two state solution au vipi?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz decided Sunday to confiscate the tax revenues that Israel collected for the Palestinian Authority during the month of November, and use it to offset the PA's debt to Israel's Electric Corporation.

Palestinians didn't know that when you grow up, you got to "man up". Let them pay their bills. Dezo imekwisha sasa.
