David Miliband: Israel won't agree on settlements

    The Foreign Secretary David Miliband has expressed his frustration with the Middle East peace process and his concern about the rise of antisemitism in Britain.

    In an interview with the Times, Mr Miliband said that Israel "obviously doesn't agree" with his repeated calls for a settlement freeze in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

    He did warn however that settlements were not the root of all terrorism in the region and worldwide.

    "It's foolish to think that if you resolved the Palestinian issue, al-Qaeda would disappear. Equally the corrosive effect of the absence of a Palestinian state is very real," he said.

    Speaking about the potential rise of antisemitism in the UK as anti-zionism feeling grows, Mr Miliband said: "I have not been subject to antisemitism but I know that some students have felt intimidation and talked to me about that."

    He added: "The Lebanon conflict - and Gaza - produced a high degree of concern."
