Laws without compelling sanctions are hardly law to heed. In the worst case scenario Israel is playing at the border of legality. Indeed Israel is not colonizing territories that belong to any other country. East Jerusalem is a disputed territory similar to the West Bank. Israel is right in considering East Jerusalem part of its capital. Formal annexation will be done after negotitations, if ever. In the abscence of negotations, the 'status quo' prevails. If the International community dissaproves that behavior it can issue sanctions through the Security Council. I might be wrong in my reckoning but by the time being I see sanctions loomimg over the head of Teheran not over Israel. What about that? Israel should continue its normal policies,although it won't be bad idea for Israel to add some type of tactical intelligence to its political initiatives.
