Israel set to approve 1,100 new Jerusalem homes beyond the Green Line
Note: The report pasted below comes from today’s news. I highlighted four words. Also see: Israel must annex West Bank settlements, Right-wing MKs tell Netanyahu – Haaretz. Right-wing members of the Knesset say they don’t want Israel to become Palestine’s “punching bag”. The underlying causes of anti-Semitism must sooner or later be addressed. Peace, Roy
The Jerusalem District Planning Committee is set to approve 1,100 new housing units in Jerusalem’s contested Gilo neighborhood on Tuesday, despite past U.S. objections concerning any construction that expanded Gilo further across the Green Line.
The plan was submitted by a subsidiary to the Jewish National Fund, and must pass 60 days in which the public may oppose it before being finally approved by Jerusalem’s planning authorities.
