On Friday, Israel announced it is offering tenders for another 450 new settlement units in the occupied West Bank, spanning several neighborhoods in occupied East Jerusalem as well as site s near Hebron.

It’s the first major settlement plan to go public since the elections were scheduled, and watchdog Peace Now was extremely critical, accusing Netanyahu of a “pre-election grab.”

Settler votes are often sought after by right-wing parties, and Netanyahu may be trying to emphasize his policy of dramatic expansions, at the expense of major diplomatic harm, ahead of the vote.

The US again criticized the planned expansion, warning it will “inflame tensions” and harm the peace process. There’s been no sign, despite repeated US complaints, that Netanyahu intends to slow the expansion any time soon.

This is good news for all supporters of Israel! More stability in the Middle East can only be beneficial for civilized people everywhere! The more Israel expands, the more stability there will be. I find it unnerving that " the powers that be" in D.C. will not support our biggest ally!

Building settlements on an occupied territory is a violation of the UN charter and Israel is violating that law but you have no problem whatsoever in violating international law when it comes to your own internets you basically turns a blind eye to it.
