Despite US and Livni Objections, 1,200 Homes Approved

JewishPress Logo

Israel’s housing minister Uri Ariel (Jewish Home) has given final approval to the construction of more than 1,000 apartments in Jewish Judea and Samaria and in East Jerusalem, three days before Israeli-Palestinian peace talks are to resume in Jerusalem, and two days before the release of the first batch of Palestinian terrorists with Jewish blood on their hands.

Minister Ariel said close to 800 apartments will be built in East Jerusalem and close to 400 in several large Jewish towns east of the “green line.”

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had long insisted he would not resume talks without an Israeli settlement freeze. In the end, he acquiesced, in response to intense U.S. pressure.

Israeli negotiator Minister Tzipi Livni is also vehemently opposed to resuming construction in Jewish areas east of the “green line.”

  2. Sorry you live in the USA that voted for him. So obamba speaks for the USA. If you don't think he is a legit leader since he used a forged doc for his birth certificate which is a felony get Americans to do what they did in Egypt and expel him. Or just make Aliya.

  3. What about the rest 999,000 apartments?
    Obama is a Kenyan ape, I think he will be the next President of Kenya where are the apes.

  4. It is forged documents, but Obama is american born in Nairobi, Kenya, he was registeres his birth in the US Embassy, that is why he is ameican.
