    "The demand to forbid Jews to buy or build in East Jerusalem is unreasonable. Let's consider what would happen if we would ban the Arab residents of the city..." He is talking about INDIVIDUALS buying here and there and it all sounds terribly reasonable. Except that it is NOT individuals building these Jew-only settlements, it's the STATE of Israel that's acquiring the land, largely through bent, illegal land rules, coercion or by demolition of Palestinian homes. It's the STATE that's planning the settlement layout, vetting the contractors, issuing the building permits, offering subsidies to Jews to move there and totally ignoring the fact that it CANNOT legally settle its own citizens on occupied territory, as that is nothing but an ethnic landgrab. In fact it's not about individual buyers' whims at all, it's about a complete state resettlement plan that aims to swamp East J'sem with Jews to outnumber Arabs and so grab their land. It really is plain ethnic fascism.
