According to Israel National News, earlier today, a spokesman said that Israeli Minister Eli Yishai has authorized the building of 1,600 new apartments in Greater Jersualem. Yishai apparently will authorize 2,700 more in coming days.
As for why this even should be newsworthy, Philadelphia Jewish Culture Examiner suggests that one ask a nearby hopeandchanger whose heart seems to bleed for the so-called “Palestinians.”
This construction within Israel’s capital of Jerusalem is likely to ruffle the feathers of the perpetually-outraged “Palestinian” Authority. The “Palestinians,” as is frequently the case for Muslims in regard to sites and cities sacred to non-Muslims, would like to have Jerusalem as a capital of a future state of “Palestine.”
According to the Israel National News story linked above, Israel has exercised de jure sovereignty in Jerusalem since 1967, following a defensive war against Jordan (which had been occupying the so-called “West Bank” until then) and numerous other Muslim Arab countries. Israel has repeatedly said that Jerusalem will remain the undivided and eternal capital of the Jewish State.
The move today is likely to aggravate Barack Obama, who spent 20 years as a congregant in a church presided over by openly anti-Semitic (and openly anti-white) Jeremiah Wright. Obama, of course, has repeatedly demonstrated much more peevishness about Israel’s building of homes within Israel than about Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapon technology.
According to Lori Lowenthal Marcus, the founder and president of the Philadelphia-area-headquartered, unabashedly-Zionist organization Z STREET: “Making more housing available in Israel is welcome news to everyone who cares about the quality of life there. The fact that it is used by some as an excuse for the Palestinian Authority’s intransigence is no surprise, and paying any attention to that canard only encourages more dissembling. Hooray for more housing in Jerusalem!”

Given the stark implications of the Obama Economy, Philadelphia Jewish Culture Examiner (Adam Taxin) would be a fool not to do everything he can to maximize his income. Taxin is available to perform work as an attorney, writer, tutor (online and in-person) and/or public-relations maven. Yes, broker’s/finder’s fees are paid.
