Binyamin (Kerry) Netanyahu Freezes New Homes for Maaleh Adumim

“E-1” is a red line in the Abbas-Netanyahu chess match of who can stay out of being cornered in the blame game. The Housing Ministry moved the E-1 pawn out front. Netanyahu pulled it back. Maaleh Adumim gets rooked.

If Netanyahu indeed did not promise Obama to freeze building on E-1, it must have been written in some kind of Hieroglyphics. Six months after he agreed to keep E-1 off the chessboard, PA negotiator Saeb Erekat said on at least two different public occasions that Obama forced Israel to commit to prevent any construction there.

In the Israeli elections after the fall of the Obama-Livni administration in 2009, Netanyahu campaigned by boasting, “I will link Jerusalem to Ma’aleh Adumim through the neighborhood of… E1. I want to see neighborhoods in one contiguous Jewish construction.”

Ho-ho and Happy Hanukkah, but a great miracle did not happen in E-1.

It will happen one day, but only after the curtains close on the Peace Talks Follies, which so far has won the applause only of journalists who need good copy for other journalists and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to read.

Israel maintains two nuclear reactors, one in Nahal Sorek, and the other is the Negev Nuclear Research Center near Dimona. The reactor was provided to Israel by the United States. Unlike the nuclear reactor at Dimona, where Israel refuses to allow any International Atomic Energy Agency inspections, the reactor at Nahal Sorek is inspected by IAEA twice a year.
