BRUSSELS—EU countries have again accused Israel of trying to destroy chances for peace with Palestinians by snatching control of East Jerusalem.

The December 2011 report by the EU heads of mission in Ramallah—seen by EUobserver—notes that last year saw "a surge in (Israeli) settlement planning" designed to ring-fence the city with Jewish-only neighborhoods.

"If current trends continue, the prospect of Jerusalem as the future capital of two states becomes increasingly unlikely and unworkable, undermining a two-state solution ... (Israeli actions) provide fuel to those who want to further radicalize the conflict," it said.

It noted that the timing of housing decisions undermined attempts to re-launch the peace process. …

Israel's foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told EUobserver on Wednesday (18 January) the surveys are illegitimate because they are drafted without Israeli input.

"We will not dignify this dubious methodology with any public answer. I think the best answer to these serial reports is given by EU authorities, who always discuss these reports succinctly and shelve them with their unfeasible recommendations almost as quickly as they are raised," he said. …

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. It has been for thousands of years.

Jordan invaded and captured a section of it and re-named it “East Jerusalem” in 1929. Israel liberated it and took it back in 1967.

The Jordanians occupied it for only 19 years.

In that time, they threw the Jews out of their homes and gave them to the arabs.

There are plenty of photographs of this. The Jordanians renamed Judea and Samaria “The West Bank”..............It to.... belongs to Israel.

I suggest that Israel pack up these Muslim squatters, and end their occupation of Israel by shipping them back to Jordan.

And since the Europeans are so partial to them, ship them to their countries, as well. Let them deal with these vilda chayahs.......Problem solved.
