U.S. Ambassador: Israel Has 2 Standards of Justice in West Bank

January 20, 2016
Headlines

The Human Rights Watch report comes after the U.S. ambassador to Israel, Daniel Shapiro, said Israel appears to have two standards for adherence to the rule of law in the West Bank—one for Jews and one for Palestinians. Shapiro made the remarks Monday at a high-profile security conference in Tel Aviv.

Daniel Shapiro: "Too many attacks on Palestinians lack a vigorous investigation or response by Israeli authorities. Too much vigilantism goes unchecked. And at times there seem to be two standards of adherence to the rule of law—one for Israelis and another for Palestinians."
