On Wednesday, the Civil Administration Planning Council rushed through approval on the plan to build 3000 apartments in E1, between Jerusalem and Ma'aleh Adumim.
It's all about a mountain that sits between Maale Adumim and Jerusalem.
The E-1 area was always viewed by Israel and the U.S. as an area which would remain in Jewish hands.
According to Saturday's Times, Israeli officials authorized construction of 3,000 housing units in "parts of East Jerusalem and the West Bank.". Palestinians want E1 for themselves to cut off Jerusalem from the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea.
