    Its a JEWISH neighborhood in Jerusalem with about 20,000+ residents. It may have been built since 1967 but no arab homes were destroyed to build etc. It was an undeveloped area of Jerusalem before 1967 today its home to alot of Jews and the palestinians have never even talked about the idea of Har Homa being annexed to some palestinian state. The only reason the palestinians are making trouble over it now is because they when they go to the UN next month they are going to demand that Jerusalem be the capital of their state so they want to try and delegitimize any Israeli presence in Jerusalem now to help justify their demands the UN make Jerusalem the capital of their state in September. We should also be supportive of the building in Har Homa because there is a real shortage of housing in Jerusalem so the more new homes built the better. BUILD BABY BUILD AND TELL OBAMA AND ABBAS TO GO TO HELL HAR HOMA IS JEWISH LAND
