  1. U.S. Criticizes Israeli Plans to Seize Palestinian Land

    Just when things were quieting down, Israel has decided to appropriate nearly 1,000 acres of West Bank land near Bethlehem for a Jewish settlement. The move — viewed as punishment for the murder of three Israeli teens — is said to be Israel’s largest land seizure in 30 years and has triggered a new wave of criticism. American leaders are calling it “counterproductive” to peace, while Palestinian leaders warn it will create more hard-line enemies of Israel.
