Palestinians Slam US Policy Reversal on Israeli Settlements


USCPR Executive Director Yousef Munayyer was quoted in Al Jazeera‘s coverage of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s recent announcement that the US no longer considers Jewish-only settlements on stolen Palestinian land to be in violation of international law.

Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of the US Campaign for Palestinian rights, called Pompeo’s announcement “another gift to Netanyahu and a green light to Israeli leaders to put settlement building further into overdrive and advance formal annexation”.
