German Chancellor Angela Merkel canceled an upcoming summit with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu due to anger over Israel's expropriation of private Palestinian lands and its approval of 6,000 settler housing units, Haaretz reported Monday. According to the Israeli daily, Merkel was incensed by the Jewish state's land grab last week, when Israel's Parliament passed a law denying Palestinians ownership of land upon which illegal settlements and outposts have been built.
