Biden Administration Foreign Policy
Progressive Democrats press Biden on E1 settlement plans

29 lawmakers urge the administration to make clear that the project cutting off Palestinian neighborhoods in East Jerusalem from Ramallah and Bethlehem is a ‘red line.’

Building in E-1 would link Jerusalem to a large settlement to its east, but essentially bisect the West Bank in two and make a contiguous Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital nearly impossible, critics say.

“We urge you to continue emphasizing in the lead-up to [US President Joe Biden’s July 13-14] visit [to Israel and the West Bank] that settlement construction in E-1 remains a red line for the United States and to use every diplomatic tool at your disposal to ensure that Israel does not further advance these devastating plans,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

Why should one sovereign country dictate to another where they can build? The Abrahamic Laws created by Pres. Trump and agreed to by all parties shouldn’t be tampered with. Obiden, butt out.
