The Belgian government again agreed to amend a war crimes law to make the law inapplicable to cases against foreign leaders without a clear link to Belgium, including Israeli leaders. The proposed changes, which still have to pass Parliament, came after complaints from the United States. Israel should continue building settlements, but do it quietly, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said. Sharon made the remarks Sunday in response to comments made by the Cabinet Infrastructure Minister Yosef Paritzky, who outlined his proposal to relocate settlers from the West Bank to less populated areas within Israel’s pre-1967 borders, the daily Ha’aretz reported.
