Israel - William Hague, The Hague and political fears

The UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has recently spoken out in support the two state solution and urged Israel to seek peace - this because Israel's policy of building on Palestinian land (especially the area known as E1 which will divide the Palestinian area) is losing it international support Hague warns Israel is losing international support over Palestine as people vote in General Election Hague points out that "An independent Palestinian state alongside Israel has been the basis of the US-backed Middle East peace process for almost 20 years." The State of Israel has of course just had elections, and we will wait and see what the policy of the new administration is, but it seems Netanyahu will be Prime Minister once again. In a further development Reuters reports that The Palestinian Authority may take Israel to the Hague Court over its building policy.
