Washington opposes construction as a matter of principle, Shapiro claims - as well as negotiating with Hamas.

|U. S. Ambassador Dan Shapiro|
American? Jew? Chicago Bears fan?
US Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro strongly condemned Israel's initiative to build over 1,500 new housing units in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem Thursday, in a move many perceive to be Israel's response to Hamas and Fatah's new "unity" government in the Palestinian Authority (PA).
“We oppose settlement construction in the West Bank as well as announcements regarding such construction,” Shapiro stated, in an interview with IDF Radio. “We would do so with or without this disputed case of a new Palestinian transitional government.” (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
Is Dan Shapiro an American? Is he a Jew? What kind of Jew?
I am willing to bet that he not intentionally a trader against his own people. Rather he is just like most Jews living in the U. S., head deep in confusion between what are Western cultural values and sensibilities.
In all fairness to Dan Shapiro, he is not the only, highly confused, Jewish ambassador we have had imposed upon us by the U. S. Government. One of them even wore a kippah, if you can believe that.
Likewise many of those confused Jews living in the U. S. also don kippoth. Wouldn't want to lose those high paying jobs as clergyman in Modern Orthodox synagogues, by encouraging aliyah (immigration to Israel), would we? Such a shame, and lost opportunity to set an example for Jews, by meeting those challenges which so many are afraid of.
But, I digress...
The Torah forbids the giving up of Land to non-Jews, whether they want to annihilate us or not.
Anyone who disagrees with this understanding, has yet to demonstrate any justification for doing so, which has any halakhic (Torah Law) basis upon which to stand.
How can any Jew in his right mind still see the U. S. as a friend of Israel, breathing down our necks, telling us what to do, and waving money in front of our faces?!
The U. S. Government and Jews living in their only true homeland, the Land of Israel, are so very clearly not on the same side.
American Jews had better make up their minds as to which side they are on, and quickly, before it it too late for them.
I feel fortunate, having made up my mind long ago, recently reaffirming that decision as to which side I am on, by renouncing my U. S. citizenship.
In Dan Shapiro's case, he needs to change his mind. Is he an American? A Jew? A U. S. Government, minion class "Court Jew?"
Sorry, Dan, but you can't have your matzah balls (or latkes, or corned beef on rye), and eat them too.
Whose side ARE you on?
