The US keeps complaining and the settler state keeps evicting as it steps up its campaign of ethnic cleansing in Jersusalem. I never knew US power was so ineffectual - or is it all just a show on the part of Obama and Clinton to sweeten the rotten smell of their imperialism in the region? You know the answer.
The US State Department once again expressed its disapproval Tuesday night over Israel's eviction of two Palestinian families from their homes in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
The American officials made a phone call to Israel's Ambassador to Washington Michael Oren and protested the move. Foreign Ministry officials in Jerusalem stressed Wednesday that the call was not a reprimand.
On Monday Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the eviction "deeply regrettable" and "provocative."
"I have said before that the eviction of families and demolition of homes in east Jerusalem is not in keeping with Israeli obligations," she told reporters. "And I urge the government of Israel and municipal officials to refrain from such provocative actions."
