At the exact time when the US senate grapples with repealing the 'don't ask don't tell' discriminatory law against gat persons in the militery, Israel in its infinite wisdom proposes to apply this principle to building in East Jerusalem. It is not the matter of these exact 1600 units but the creeping clandestine demolitions of Palestinians dwellings and 'expansion' of existing illegal Jewish 'neighborhoods', that matter. You don't have to ask, for your own 'lying' eyes will tell the story. Netanyahu will continue with his old shticks whenever he can. The US should not fall for it.
