My thanks to journalist Matthew Kalman, who posted this on his Facebook page:
Netanyahu caught lying. Again. “We have no intention of building new settlements or of expropriating additional land for existing settlements,” he declared in a speech at Bar-Ilan University in June 2009.
But here is this week’s statement by his attorney general to Israel’s Supreme Court expropriating more than 200 acres of land to kosher up the illegal outpost of Haresha near Ramallah.
The statement is in Hebrew but this Peace Now piece explains how the government expropriated 202 acres in order to legalize the 17 acre illegal outpost of Haresha.
