Jerusalem, Nov. 20 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has expressed her opposition to the Obama administration's freeze settlement demands by saying that all the Jews moving to Israel need a place to live.

In an interview with ABC's Good Morning America, Palin said: "I disagree with the Obama administration on that. I believe that the Jewish settlements should be allowed to be expanded upon, because that population of Israel is, is going to grow.

"More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead. And I don't think that the Obama administration has any right to tell Israel that the Jewish settlements cannot expand," she added.

J Street condemned Palin's comments and accused her of pandering and ignorance.

"Palin's pandering to her right-wing base comes at the expense of the security of the State of Israel, the lives of those actually living the conflict, and the fundamental American interest in achieving a two-state solution in the near term," it said.

"Her words reveal a glaring ignorance of damaging facts and a callous disregard of past and present US policy," it added. (ANI)
