The Rapture Report - New US-Israeli Crisis Looms, More Flotillas on the way to Gaza
Rapture Forum Staff: Chris
The Israeli media outlets are reporting that the Israelis are planning to remove 22 illegally built Arab homes in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan in order to make way for a new tourist center. This recent announcement has been met with outrage from the Palestinians and the international community who foresee East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state supposedly living side by side in peace with Israel. The Israel National News is reporting:
As we can see from the INN report these 22 Arab housing units were "illegally" built yet the world expects the law of Israel to be ignored for their own agenda. I can tell you that in America if you build a home without the proper permits they will tell you to tear down the building. And they don't care how much it costs either. You either have the right permits or you don't. It's that simple. But low and behold, the hypocrites in the international community are obviously willing to overlook this "minor" detail that the housing units which were built illegally and therefore are demanding that Israel not carry out the demolition of these housing projects. I find this very hypocritical and smacking of anti-semitism which is nothing new as it relates to the international community's views towards Israel. The international community apparently thinks they own Israel and can dictate at their leisure whatever outrageous demands they want to make at any given time. For me, I personally think the Israelis should be giving the international community the "boot" when they come around with such nonsense.Another crisis between the Netanyahu and Obama administrations looms over housing in Jerusalem, this time because of Jerusalem’s plan to wreck 22 illegally built Arab homes to make way for an archaeological park. The Jerusalem municipality proposal also calls for making legal 66 other Arab buildings built without permits.
The U.S. State Department said Monday afternoon it is “concerned” over the plan that “we think undermines the trust that is fundamental in making progress to the proximity talks and ultimately in direct negotiations.” Chief Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat called on foreign countries to “halt these dangerous steps [that] prove that Israel has decided to destroy the indirect talks" with the Palestinian Authority.
