Tell it to Biden: Housing in Ramat Shlomo gets final approval

The Interior Ministry District Committee finally approved the construction of 1,500 Jewish homes in Jerusalem's Ramat Shlomo neighborhood on Monday. Ramat Shlomo is the neighborhood about which Joe Biden threw a temper tantrum in March 2010.
The Interior Ministry District Committee approved construction of 1,500 housing units in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood in north Jerusalem, beyond the Green Line, Israel Radio reported.

The project already became a major source of international controversy as part of the "Biden Fiasco," when the project was approved for deposit during the US vice president's visit to Israel in March 2010.

Following the incident, the Prime Minister's Office instituted "increased mechanisms" to ensure they are involved and updated about all east Jerusalem building projects.

Israel approved the construction of 3,000 new housing units in Jerusalem and in the West Bank last month in response to the UN approving the Palestinian bid for non-member observer state status, government officials stated.
I'll bet that the UN Security Council meets on this before it meets on the 25 'Palestinian refugees' who were killed in Yarmouk 'refugee camp' by the Assad regime on Sunday.
