If Danny is an Israeli, there is something drastically wrong with the Israeli educational system. The USSR was not active in West Berlin but in East Berlin and indirectly there after the war years of World War ii. The "occupiers" of East Berlin were in fact natives, East Berliners, under a Communist regime. They isolated themselves which is the opposite of the complaint made by the EU--that Israel expands its base at the expense of isolated Arab communities. That said, Israel is next door to "East Jerusalem" and the Israeli national history there goes back literally thousands of years to key landmarks there--the Temple Mount and the City of David. The EU is actually complaining about the creation of Jewish neighborhoods, some to replace Jews displaced in 1947 and 1948 and some new, in the greater and expanded municipality of unified (and annexed) Jerusalem--parts of "East Jerusalem" for example are to the south and west, as in Gilo.
