Israel PM Heads To Berlin As Settlement Dispute Grows

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was due in Berlin on Wednesday for talks likely to focus on the growing crisis over settlement plans that could torpedo the viability of a Palestinian state.

Ahead of his departure on a trip that will take him briefly to Prague and then on to Berlin, Netanyahu brushed off the diplomatic pressure.

He insisted that Israel’s settlement building was not the central issue in the decades-long conflict between the Jewish state and the Palestinians.

“The root of the conflict is not the settlements; it is the very existence of the state of Israel and the desire to wipe it off the face of the earth,” he said late on Tuesday.

1. Berlin should have canceled his visit


Or arrest him and turn him over to the ICC.
