ISRAEL: WE WILL NOT CEDE ANY LAND TO PALESTINIANS

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on 8th March that Israel would not cede any territory to Palestine, which in effect rules out the establishment of a functional Palestinian state.

LEE HSIEN LOONG: HUNDREDS OF INNOCENT KILLED IN GAZA, DONATE GENEROUSLY TO MUIS GAZA HUMANITARIAN FUND

Yet there is no future in this endless cycle of violence and retribution.
