New Jerusalem neighborhood approved

A new neighborhood was approved in Jerusalem on Wednesday. The new neighborhood will have 625 apartments and will be called North Pisgat Zev. Yes, it is across the 1948 armistice lines (so is just about every place in Jerusalem that is available for building these days.

Pisgat Zev is supposed to be a Jewish neighborhood, but as you can see in the photo at top left, there are some Arabs living there.

The Obama administration expressed 'strong opposition.'

The 'Palestinians' complain that the new neighborhood shows that Israel does not want 'peace.'
An aide to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday charged that a plan to build 625 housing units in Pisgat Ze'ev proves that Israel does not want to resume peace talks, Reuters reported.

"This Israeli signal shows that they are not willing and not ready for any deal in order to resume the negotiations," Nabil Abu Rudeineh was quoted as saying. "It looks like this is an Israeli message to the Palestinians and the Americans that they are refusing any deal resuming the negotiations."

Also Thursday, Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat said that the plan showed Israel had chosen "settlements and not peace."
Jerusalem is not a 'settlement.'

Jerusalem is not a 'settlement.'

The land of Israel is the Jewish nation's land.

You've made the same mistake as every Israeli government has done for the past 3 decades.

Nothing prevents the Palestinians from climbing down from the "precondition" of a Jerusalem freeze the American President unfortunately lied about not imposing in the first place. It is a shame he strongly opposes Israel building in East Jerusalem--but then he strongly opposes American citizens enforcing American immigration laws or American citizens looking for oil. That the world doesn't comport to the imaginary diorama between his two jug ears is now a commonplace.
