Less than 24 hours after General Assembly recognizes Palestine as non-member state, government's top nine ministers respond by approving construction of new housing units in Jerusalem, West Bank. Canada says will review its whole relationship with Palestinian Authority
In addition, the planning procedures of thousands of additional housing units in Jerusalem and the settlement blocs will be furthered, including in the segment connecting Ma'ale Adumim with Jerusalem, known as the E1 project.
State officials said Israel was considering further moves in response to the United Nations General Assembly's recognition of Palestine as an observer state.One of the biggest mistakes that we've made as a people was in legitimizing Palestinian and Arab anti-Jewish racism through agreeing that Jewish Israelis should not be allowed to live, and thus build, in Judea and Samaria.
And, yet again, this was mainly a problem that came out of the Jewish left. Barack Obama could never have made such a big stink about the so-called "settlers" if his Jewish friends and advisers had not given him the green light by agreeing with dictator Abbas that it was OK for Jews to live here, but not over there.
There is absolutely no reason in this world why Jews should not be allowed to live, and thus build, in Judea. Now, of course, if the Palestinians actually did have a state on that land then they could enact whatever racist laws that make them happy. But since they don't, they can't.
They could have had a state, but they threw every single opportunity into the toilet going back to the Peel Commission of 1937.
Tis a shame, I suppose... maybe.
