Top UN official urges International community to back Israel's withdrawal plan
This is from Kuwaiti news source, which presents the UN official as placing more demands on Israel than the Palestinians.
De Soto voiced his concern for the Jewish settlement activities and said Israel should dismantle the settlements, mainly those built after September 2000.
He said the ongoing construction of the separation wall on the Palestinian territories would fuel tension and affect the lives of Palestinians particularly those living in East Jerusalem.
He called on Israel to honor its international obligations vis-a-vis the wall, which slices Palestinian territories.
The UN security council will, in line with a request by Kuwait, the rotating chairman of the Arab group, hold an extraordinary open meeting to discuss the deterioration of the Palestinian situation.
He shows at least some recognition of Israel's needs, although I'm not quite sure about the accuracy of his description of Palestinian desires. It doesn't explain their lavish use of missiles :
He added that Israel wanted peace and the Palestinians wanted a kind of hope reflecting on their daily lives to pave way to establish a Palestinian state living side-by-side with Israel in peace and security.
