Barghouti: Israeli settler expansion 'war on Palestinians'

Dec. 18, 2012 2:59 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 19, 2012 11:38 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Lawmaker Mustafa Barghouti said Tuesday that Israel's settlement expansion plans are akin to declaring war on Palestinians.

Israel on Monday approved plans to build 1,500 more Jewish settler homes in East Jerusalem on Monday, an official said, days after provoking international protests against a project for another 3,000 such homes on land in the city.

Barghouti, head of the Palestinian National Initiative party, said Palestinians should form a united national leadership in order to fight this war. The leaders should build a national strategy based on popular resistance, he said.

The lawmaker said Israel's provocative policies will ultimately lead Palestinians to the International Criminal Court in order to stop these settlements plans.
