    OSLO allows for natural growth for Settlements. The fact that Abbas broken this part of OSLO (and the rest of OSLO) proves that any agreement that Israel makes with the PLO/PA will not be honored by the PLO/PA. Going to the Hague, unilateral moves at the UN are all violations of OSLO. Israelis won't forget this. Abbas is continuously demonstrating his and the Palestinians inability to be trusted. He thinks he is hurting Israel, but he is only hurting the Palestinian people whose integrity in the eyes of Israelis have been reduced to nothing. Want peace? Then build trust, but sadly the PLO/PA have done the very opposite. To be clear: E1 is part of Jerusalem and is part of the contiguous part of Israel's capital. It will be part of Israel no matter what agreement is made. The PLO/PA has already agreed to this and this fact must be made public. Abbas is pushing his luck, Israel will not stand by as Arabs grab more and more of Israel's land and violate every agreement they make.
