Like many on the left, Eldar does not understand independence or freedom, but only dicatorship. The Netanyahu government never agreed to a freeze in Jerusalem. The Begin Government annexed all of liberated Jerusalem. So there is no legal problem with Jewish building in Israel's capital. Since the left wish to dictate to the nationa, even whilst they are in opposition, They also expect the USA to follow their dictates. But the west bank freeze itself was not justified. The Bush government had agreemnts with Sharon govt for natural growth in WB. If the US cannot be trusted to adhere to its own agreemnts, then why should Israel adhere to them?
