Map Of Israel’s Illegal Home Construction In East Jerusalem And West Bank

March 15, 2010

Israel’s insult was heard around the world last week when they gave notice of building 1,600 more illegal homes in East Jerusalem.  The West Bank is littered with these constructions and in the end they need to be demolished and the people who reside their need to leave.   This land is not for Israel to claim as their own.  The fact that Israel has worked endlessly to wear down every President of the United States on this issue has not worked to prevent the rightful backlash over this action.  Israel has a problem working with others on the big stage of international diplomacy and needs to be brought in line.

1 Gilo: 850 homes approved for publication and planning objections in Nov 2009
2 Pisgat Zeev: 600 homes approved for publication and planning objections in Jan 2010
3 Sheikh Jarrah: Several Palestinian families evicted in past 18 months to make way for Jewish settlers after court ruled in ownership dispute
4 Ramat Shlomo: 1,600 homes approved for publication and planning objections in Mar 2010
5 Silwan: Demolition orders on 88 Palestinian homes built without difficult-to-get permits – Israel planning controversial renewal project
6. West Bank barrier: Making Palestinian movement between West Bank and Jerusalem harder – Israel says it’s for security
