Israeli settler leaders vowed to continue expanding settlements. Leaders of the Yesha Council, which represents settlers in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, said they would oppose U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell’s call on Monday for “Israeli settlement activity to stop.” The Council issued a statement Wednesday calling on Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to repudiate Powell’s remarks concerning settlements and Powell’s use of the term “occupied land.”
