    Firstly, I'd like to point out how funny this article is. So now even a Jewish building project that isn't beyond the "Green Line" can also be called a "settlement"? So Burston is siding with those who advocate wiping Israel off the map entirely by labelling any Jewish presence anywhere in the land as a "settlement"? But I'd like to point out one enormous double-standard. The Arabs/Muslims have built numerous mosques and other structures on ancient, holy Jewish sites. e.g. The Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa complex ontop of the Temple Mount, the "al Ibrahim" mosque in the Cave of the Patriarchs, the "Bilal Ibn Rabah" mosque on top of Rachel's Tomb, and of course there's the tearing down of Joseph's Tomb - these just to name a few. Where is Burston's self-righteous outrage in those cases?
