Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday responded to international criticism of a plan to build 797 homes in Gilo, saying that Israel will continue construction in Jerusalem in the same way that the international community builds in their own individual capitals.Good for Netanyahu!
"We place no limits on construction in our capital city," Netanyahu said at the start of a cabinet meeting. "Just as they build in London, Paris, Washington and Moscow, we will continue to build in Jerusalem."
If I thought for one second that the Palestinians actually wanted a state for themselves in peace next to Israel with the Arab portions of Jerusalem as a capital I might think otherwise, but clearly they do not.
I know that some Jews like the idea of ripping the heart out of Israel in order to feed it to the Arab world out of some pathetic hope that this will placate them, but since the Arabs have proven that they will not leave the Jews of the Middle East in peace it makes no sense to give them any part of the ancient Jewish city for another Arab capital.
When Obama lied to the Jewish people in his AIPAC speech of, I think, 2008, he said that Jerusalem is the ancient capital of Israel and that it must remain undivided.
I wholeheartedly agree. The only difference, of course, is that I am not lying about it.
