Peace Now accused of sabotaging Biden visit

Peace Now is attempting to sabotage US vice president Joe Biden’s visit to Israel for the second time, the organization NGO Monitor and right-wing MKs said Tuesday.

When Biden came in March 2010, Peace Now revealed that a building project in Jerusalem’s haredi (ultra-Orthodox) Ramat Shlomo neighborhood had been advanced from one initial stage in Israel’s long building process to another initial stage. Peace Now’s report led to US president Barack Obama’s administration accusing Netanyahu of "building a new settlement" in order to humiliate Biden.
