Israel will get US aid only if it ceases settlement constructions, Warren suggests

Democratic candidate for 2020 presidential election, Elizabeth Warren, says if Israel does not stop building illegal settlements, then Everything is on the table.

As Reported by Qods News Agency (Qodsna) The Massachusetts Democrat made the comment Sunday when asked about Israel’s illegal settlements and the US aid to Tel Aviv.


She asserted that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s construction of the settlements is against the US official policy of the so-called “two-state solution.”


"Right now, Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements, [but] that does not move us in the direction of a two-state solution," Warren said.


The Trump administration has, meanwhile, shown support for the Tel Aviv regime’s illegal land grab.


"It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table," she said, repeating: "Everything is on the table."


US corporate foundations give tens of thousands of dollars to nonprofits that send money to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, report says.


Her fellow 2020 primary contender, Senator Bernie Sanders, has also censured Israel’s policy towards the Palestinians before.


"The killing of Palestinian demonstrators by Israeli forces in Gaza is tragic. It is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response," Sanders tweeted last year. "Meanwhile, the situation in Gaza remains a

humanitarian disaster. The US must play a more positive role in ending the Gaza blockade and helping Palestinians and Israelis build a future that works for all."


About 600,000 Israelis live in over 230 illegal settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds.


France and Britain have condemned the Israeli regime’s plan to construct over 800 new settler units in the occupied East Jerusalem al-Quds.


The UN Security Council has condemned Israel’s settlement activities in the occupied territories in several resolutions.


Less than a month before Trump took office, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2334, calling on Israel to “immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territories, including East Jerusalem” al-Quds.
