It is the only nation in the world that thinks it can get away with stealing others' land and settling it illegally to change the demographic balance. Why on earth do the major players put up with it? Is it all really down to 7 million Jewish votes in the USA and the malign influence of AIPAC on the US Congress? Surely Obama is going to knock this on the head once and for all, the Democrats have nothing in common with these kind of neocon, racist policies. Seems like Netanyahu is already counting Pisgat Ze'ev and Neve Ya'akov as future Israeli territory, without bothering with the talks and agreement needed first with the PA. The Har Homa housing is just a try-on, it will end up in Palestinian East Jerusalem as sure as the sun rises each morning. Still, more nice new homes for the Pal refugees to return to one day soon.
