June 13, 2013 - State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki answers (or doesn't answer) questions from reporters on increased Israeli settlement activity on Palestinian land. An important question, fielded by the AP reporter, addressed the fact that the US is willing to cut funding to Palestinians for their State recognition request at the UN while Israel faces no consequences for building illegal settlements, especially when the US itself admits that the settlement activity is illegal. Questions were from the Associated Press, AFP, and Al-Quds news agencies.
