Again a confrontation with the United States: US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro came out today (Monday) with criticism of Israel's conduct in the West Bank and said that it seems that Israel has two standards of law enforcement in the West Bank - one for Jews and another for Palestinians.

The Prime Minister's Office reacted strongly and said that on the day when burying a mother of six who was killed, and on the day when a pregnant woman was stabbed – these words are unacceptable and incorrect.

Ambassador Shapiro said: "There are too many cases in which Israelis in the West Bank take the law into their own hands and are not investigated. There are no thorough investigations and sometimes it seems that Israel has two standards of law enforcement in the West Bank - one for Jews and another for Palestinians."

Shapiro added that the two-state solution is the only way to prevent Israel becoming a binational state and that "one has to find ways of preserving the two-state solution. The Government is concerned in view of the settlement policy of the Israeli government, which raises questions about Israel's intentions." He made the remarks at the INSS conference.

The office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded that "the words of the ambassador, on the day of burying a mother of six who was killed, and on the day when a pregnant woman was stabbed - are unacceptable and incorrect. Israel has enforced the law against Israelis and against the Palestinians. The one responsible for the political deadlock is the Palestinian Authority, which continues to incite and refuses negotiations".
