It is absolutely false to say that building permits are equal for Arabs and Jews. A pelestinian can wait up to 12 years ,when he gets lucky, but 90% of the time gets rejected . This is very well known fact and you can investigate it from fair and balanced sources not the Jewish Only municipality of Jerusalem. People are kicked out of their homes in Jerusalem for invented reasons just because they are not Jews and the plan is make it as jewish as possible no matter how . The original and ownners of Jerusalem are considered undesirable because they don,t fit in with the plan.A palestinian can lose his residency in Jerusalem because he lives for a year or two in a foreign country and much faster if he abtains its nationality but a jewish can have as many nationalities as he can and he can live outside for as long as he desires, worse a Jew from any part of the world has more right in Jerusalem than a Palestinian who can have his roots back to the Jebusites who buit the city thousands of years ago and long before our Patrirach put a foot in Palestine.!!!
