The US expended time, effort and goodwill to attempt to put together a peace talk agreement. For Israel, to declare, one day after the US announcement that agreement to begin peace talks had been reached, plans to build new housing units in disputed E. Jerusalem was an affront and an insult to the US, and the Palestinians: and a gesture of thumbing a Jewish nose at the UN, the EU and the entire international community. The Israeli announcement was a declaration that Israel is determined to continue its violation of UN resolutions, and the 4th Geneva Convention and ignore its lack of a legal basis for sovereignty in Jerusalem. If a conflagration should erupt, the US should declare neutrality, and cease all financial, military and political aid and support to both sides. It should hold Israel as an aggressor and endorse such a UNSC declaration.
