Netanyahu said emphatically that Israel would not abide by the UN resolution that Obama backed and it looks like they are doing just that. Tomorrow Israel will approve THOUSANDS of new housing units in East Jerusalem:
USA TODAY – Despite the U.N. resolution condemning settlements, Jerusalem Municipality is set to approve thousands of new housing units in the eastern sector of the city this week. The pro-Netanyahu daily Israel Hayom reported the Jerusalem District Zoning Committee is convening Wednesday to discuss approving fresh construction in that part of the city.
“We remain unfazed by the U.N. vote, or by any other entity that tries to dictate what we do in Jerusalem,” Deputy Jerusalem Mayor Meir Turgeman, who heads the zoning committee, told the paper this week. “I hope the Israeli government and the new U.S. administration will support us, so we can make up for the lack (of construction) during the eight years of the Obama administration.”
Israel is outraged over this UN resolution and I have no doubt that tomorrow they will approve all of these settlements. When they do they will basically be spitting a big loogie in the face of the UN, all the countries that voted for this UN resolution and those who abstained.
