Jerusalem is disputed territory, it is NOT occupied territory and therefore not covered by the geneva conventions as and independent entity or part thereof since there was never a "palestinian" state. Jordan illegally annexed eastern Jerusalem and has since then renounced all claims. It is therefore up to the Israeli government to issue permits to build housing- not the PLO or some other terrorist group!
