Ne­tanyahu faces back­lash over ‘eth­nic cleans­ing’ re­mark

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Israeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu faced grow­ing crit­i­cism af­ter he called the Pales­tinian re­fusal to let Jews live in their fu­ture state “eth­nic cleans­ing”. In a video re­leased on Septem­ber 9, Mr Ne­tanyahu re­jected the no­tion that West Bank set­tle­ments were “an ob­sta­cle to peace”, draw­ing a re­buke from Wash­ing­ton which de­scribed the video “un­help­ful” and “in­ap­pro­pri­ate”.
