    I have relatives in Har Homa, Ma'ale Adumim, Ariel and elsewhere scattered across the West Bank. I talk with them and visit regularly. Here are the facts: In 1967 Israel TRIPLED the size of jerusalem's municipal boundries, far, far in excess of the city's historical dimensions. I have a neice and nephew and their families who live in Har Homa. They were recruited to move from Ma'ale Adumim for the express purpose of building a ring around Jerusalem to prevent Palestinian claims and access to the city. That is the basis of Har Homa's proposed expansion as well as builing in the E-1 corridor to Ma'ale Adumim. Furthermore, new recruiting is going on to seed proposed new settlements in Atarot (11,000 new settlers near Ramallah), Giv?at Yael (20,000 new settlers near Bethlehem), Shimo?n Hatsedeeq neigborhood(2000 settlers near Abu Dis). The Plan is to keep delaying peace until no viable Palestinian State can exist.
