What is happening in Har Homa today has happened thousands of times since ayatolah Levinger squatted in Hebron in the 70's. Israeli governments either hailed it ("liberating" the land) or tolerated it, or argued that it was an "internal" affair. The USA patron fumed but mostly looked the other way. Israeli leadership also claimed that "there is no peace partner anyway", so why bother?. The world changed now. When Olmert went to Annapolis he said that the king wore peace clothing, but it seems that he is naked, very naked, and the world is watching it with a big microscope. Now, as in the past, more Har Homas means less of Israel, and Israel will not be able to use the "antisemitism" card to prevent its melting into a one-state if the realities on the ground prevent the "two states" arrangement. The writing is in the wall.
