What really gets Washington riled up
If you think Washington got excited about a terror attack on Tuesday, wait until you see how much more excited they get over - you guessed it - the construction of 78 Jewish homes in Jerusalem. Nothing could be more 'harmful' to 'the cause of peace.'
According to Reuters, State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke stressed Washington's "clear and consistent opposition to construction activity in East Jerusalem."
"During this sensitive time in Jerusalem, we would see such activity as inconsistent with the goal of lower tensions and seeking a path toward peace," he added.
The latest criticism from Washington was made after the Jerusalem municipality approved the construction of 78 new homes for Jews in Jerusalem.
Municipal spokeswoman Brachie Sprung said 50 homes will be built in Har Homa and 28 in Ramot.Yeah, I'm sure that's what motivated those two shmucks to go into a synagogue and murder people in the middle of prayers. Because there's nothing more inciting than building homes for people to live in.
PS I keep forgetting to throw this out: Can you imagine the outrage in the world if someone went in and shot up a mosque in the middle of prayers?
