Israel minister: US will veto Palestine declaration

April 12, 2011

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Israeli officials have said that the US will use its veto if the UN Security Council decides to vote on approving an independent Palestinian state.

Israel Radio reported that the US supports negotiations rather than unilateral steps.

Israeli minister Uzi Landau said Israel should announce the annexation of several huge settlement outposts and the Jordan Valley if the Palestinians announce statehood at the UN.

He also said that Israel must put an end to Hamas’ “war of attrition” that he said was being waged against Israel. He also said that there should be a much larger-scale attack on Gaza than the current escalation.
