1. America Demands that Israel “Freeze” Growth and Construction


    from CJHS Added 29 0 0

    David Ha'Ivri of the Shomron Regional Council of the northern Samarian hills, also known as the northern part of the northern half of the West Bank presented a film and dialogue in response to Obama's demand that Israel “freeze” growth and construction -- that Israeli families not be allowed to build extra rooms on their houses, much less new houses, and that they discontinue even “natural growth.” Obama’s envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, explained the meaning of this to reporters last month: QUESTION: . . . can you give us just a definition of what the United States considers natural growth? What does that phrase mean in your mind? MR. MITCHELL: There’s been no change in our policy. And there have been - there have been discussions on every aspect of the issue. QUESTION: Well, what does natural growth mean? I mean, can you just use it in… MR. MITCHELL: I’m constantly asked by editors, you know, please give a plain explanation of what natural growth is. QUESTION: If it’s for your editor. (Laughter.) MR. MITCHELL: Well, of course, one of the issues is that there is no universally used and accepted definition. The most common definition is by the number of births, but there are many variations of that. I’ve had numerous discussions with many Israeli and other officials, and there are almost as many definitions as there are people speaking. But I think the most commonly used measure is the number of births. Not everyone is laughing. David Ha’Ivri is a spokesman and liaison for the Samaria Regional Council. He lives in Kfar Tapuach in the Shomron (Samaria) with his wife and eight children. His wife’s parents and many of her siblings live in the town as well. The Shomron Regional Council (Hebrew: מועצה אזורית שומרון‎) is a regional council in the northern Samarian hills, also known as the northern part of the northern half of the West Bank.

          “Peace in the Middle East is of central importance to the entire world. An Israeli-Palestinian resolution of the conflict would be so valuable because it would permit countries that are now at odds with each other, the Arab countries, and Israel to look together toward their principal threat, which it Iran and its influence in the region.” A leader in law, business, and politics, George J. Mitchell, a widely respected former US senator from Maine, served as majority leader of the Senate, as special envoy for Northern Ireland under President Clinton, and as special envoy for Middle East peace under President Obama.

                  My fourth and final package as an intern at NBC Newschannel. 7-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens has been at the center of the steroids controversy since his name highlighted a list of alleged users in former Sen. George Mitchell's 2007 report on the matter. Clemens told a Congressional panel in 2008 - under oath - that he never used steroids or HGH during his 24-year career. On June 18, 2012, a jury found Clemens not guilty of lying to and obstructing that panel.
