Posted on 06/26/2013 2:35:41 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
A planning committee on Wednesday granted final approval for the construction of 69 east Jerusalem homes, an official said.
Arabs from the Palestinian Authority (PA) said the move demonstrated that Israel was not serious about U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's peace efforts, although an Israeli diplomatic source quickly sought to distance the government from the move.
"The municipal committee has today given its final approval for the construction of 69 homes in Har Homa in east Jerusalem," councillor Meir Margalit told AFP.
The approval was granted by the planning committee just before Kerry took off for Amman on his fifth visit to the region since February as he steps up efforts to draw Israel and the Palestinians back into direct negotiations.
"This a blind provocation against Kerry," said Margalit, a member of the leftwing Meretz party. "It proves just how much the government of Bibi Netanyahu wants peace," he said.

Been disconnected from Internet due to corporate bureaucracy of Hot Internet service. Should you ever move to Israel, use anything to connect, so long as you stay away from Hot. They suck. I'll probably be disconnected again soon.
Every time you make a leftist angry, another angel gets its wings.
“Arabs from the Palestinian Authority (PA) said the move demonstrated that Israel was not serious about U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s peace efforts..”
Israel isn’t serious about Kerry.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
If they're going to be angry anyway, should have built 169 homes.
You made my day with that one!!!!!!
Y’know, there’s a good slogan in there:
“P*ss off a terrorist: Make Aliyah.”
LOL. I’ve done my share on that score. If I can get my daughter and two grandkids here, I’ll be into extra innings.
“Every time a leftist gets angry, an angel gets its wings.”
Somebody must do a spoof of Angry Birds along these lines.
Nothing’s built yet. Just approved. Not enough applications done traveling the bureaucratic pipeline, I suppose. Now some Palis will have gainful employment building the 69 houses, instead of standing there with their hands out, saying how oppressed they are. Angry leftists, chaaarge!
