They’re going to build in East Jerusalem even if it derails any possibility of peace with the Palestinians.
Israel on Tuesday hotly defended its new construction plans for disputed east Jerusalem against criticism from President Barack Obama, Palestinians and the European Union — insisting it never agreed to halt the building and sharpening a crisis that threatens to derail peace talks. A harsh statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office insisted that “Jerusalem is not a settlement. It is the capital of the state of Israel.” It continued: “Israel sees no link between the peace process and its development plans in Jerusalem.”
Hurry up and apologize, President Obama. You don’t want John Hagee’s kind angry at you! Be sure to call the Israeli Prime Minister (you know him as your lord and master) and tell him you were just kidding. Pandering to the left or sane people or people who care about more than just one ethnic group or whatever you have to do to make sure Israel isn’t angered. Oh no, Israel must never be made angry! The minute that happens, the term ‘antisemitic’ is whipped out and then all hell breaks loose!
So, Mr. President, cower. It’s the only way you can avoid the inevitable sideways glance from zionism.
