Her ugliness strikes again

The world's ugliest diplomat made one of her ugliest statements ever on Friday night after the Sabbath started.
Ashton said she has "followed with concern" developments in the areas, including the Defense Ministry's authorization to expand Jewish property holdings in Hebron, the IDF's claim as state land of 100 hectares in the Gush Etzion region of the West Bank, and reported Israeli demolitions of Palestinian property in Area C and east Jerusalem.
She also condemned Israel's alleged demolition of EU-funded housing structures outside of Ma'aleh Adumim in the E1 area, a highly contentious area in the West Bank east of Jerusalem.
In a statement, Ashton blasted such steps as "not conducive to the climate of trust and cooperation needed for the current peace negotiations to succeed."
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman slammed Ashton in a post on his Facebook page.
Liberman criticized the top EU diplomat for calling on Israel to reverse recent decisions made in regard to the West Bank and east Jerusalem, insinuating that she should concentrate on what he indicated were a multitude of more pressing issues.
He denounced the timing of Ashton's statement at a time when he said "there are many other instances around the globe of charged confrontations and conflicts that claim human life," citing the crisis in Ukraine, the Syrian civil war and violence in Iraq.
Liberman on Facebook sarcastically charged that "it was lucky that the European Union knows how to diagnose critical problems in the world and take care of them quickly and decisively."
Arutz Sheva adds:
Ashton made no reference to Palestinian Authority moves which caused negotiations to collapse, including its repeated refusal to recognize Israel as the Jewish people's nation-state, and the decision to unilaterally apply for membership in 15 international agencies.
An Israeli official, who requested anonymity, slammed Ashton's comment, and pinned the blame for the faltering peace talks on the Palestinians.    
"It is not surprising that once more Mrs Ashton is ignoring Palestinian responsibility in the crisis facing the discussions," the official said. "Although the Palestinians clearly and crudely violated the agreements by unilaterally addressing the United Nations, Mrs Ashton did not see the need to react to that."    
"As always when the Palestinians must make decisions, they refuse to do so in the knowledge that the international community will ignore it, and this is what happened," the Israeli official said.   
I'd love to know who that 'Israeli official' was.... Those are the kind of comments we need to make regularly.
