Israeli Defense Minister Lieberman Tells U.S. Secretary of State Tillerson: Settlements Not an Impediment to Peace

(Ha'aretz) Gili Cohen - Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that Israeli settlements are not an impediment to peace during a meeting in Washington on Wednesday. Lieberman noted that "even the uprooting of 21 blooming towns in Gaza did not lead to peace but rather to rocket fire at Israel." Lieberman also asked Tillerson to review U.S. policy toward the UN Human Rights Council and UNRWA, saying these organizations "are not filling their intended goals but rather the Human Rights Council is busy slandering Israel and attempting to harm it by distorting reality."
