France and Jordan on Tuesday condemned Israel's decision to normalize the status of three communities in Judea and Samaria.
The communities of Rechilim, Bruchin, and Sansana were built in the 1990's with government approval.
The Foreign Ministry in Paris issued a statement that the move "sends a negative message, which is an obstacle to peace."
According to France, all Israeli construction in Judea, Samaria, and eastern Jerusalem is illegal.
Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh also condemned Israel for "legalization of three settlements and unilateral activity."
Nonetheless, a special Ministerial team appointed by the government to determine the status of Israel's community in Judea and Samaria decided last Tuesday to regulate the three communities.
In the case of Sansana, the planning commission of the IDF Civil Administration which administers Judea and Samaria had tried in February to overrule the approval of Defense Minister Ehud Barak for the settlement.
France and Jordan regard Israel as an 'occupying power' in Judea and Samaria who is proscrobed from developing and settling the region. Israel, which has formally annexed eastern Jerusalem, regards Judea and Samaria as 'disputed territory' on which no such restriction exists.

When it comes to Palestinians the fact that one Jew even lives is an obstacle for peace.
Never forget that!
To think Jews in Israel were queuing up to vote in the French election.
They voted for Sarkozy....they may as well have voted Marine le Pen. She is more reliable in her opinions than Sarkozy or the leader of the left Hollande.
Jews in Israel once queued up to vote Churchill’s Conservatives out of office in favor of Labour. Predictably, Labour was worse. Where Churchill allowed appalling excesses in the Mandate, Labour insisted on more and more of the same, and thank you for your vote and support. History repeats itself vis a vis France.

Jews living in Judea and Samaria, not something Jordan would tolerate. As shame they entered the 67 war, they had another option but the Egyptians are said to have tricked them.
They tricked themselves, but Egypt helped. Oh, well. We got back the land stolen from us in 1929, 1933-36, and 1948. They ultimately got shut of the PLO, which is now our problem. Life goes on. Get over it, Jordan.
