Build inside settlement blocs, not beyond – Ross

An Israeli initiative to build only in settlements on the inside of the security fence would both blunt efforts to internationalize the Israeli- Palestinian conflict and get relations with the next American president off on a different footing, Dennis Ross said Sunday.

Ross, who dealt with Middle East issues under George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, said at a press conference at the Jerusalem Press Club that Israel should make its settlement policy consistent with its declaration of support for a two-state solution.
