ejThe planned construction of 900 housing units in the Ramat Shlomo community of Yerushalayim was met with sharp and immediate European Community condemnation. While the chareidi neighborhood in the capital is an integral part of Yerushalayim, in the eyes of the EU, the US and international community, it is over the so-called Green Line and therefore ‘disputed territory’.

The EU and the German Foreign Office have already spoken out, warning such actions “threatens the viability of the two-state solution…”

US State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said, “Israel’s leaders have asserted that they remain committed to a two-state solution…” calling on Israeli leaders not to act contrary to that commitment.

  1. Let the Gentiles say what they want. We must not be intimidated. This land is ours and we ourselves must realize such and speak out clearly and firmly about it and build wherever we decide best for our interests.

  2. The EU – a probably non-viable hotch-potch of confused countries and dreaming it will be a future superpower can have an opinion on this subject? Still more interesting, Germany, that source of so much pain and destruction, the former lover of the “Grand Mufti” and his happy band – Germany wants to tell us something?! In their way of thinking, the Middle East problem wouldn’t exist if Europe – especially Germany – hadn’t tried to exterminate us!
