Hardly. It is during this time, between now and the bush visit, that work on the sites in question can continue. Facts will be established. Olmert has the audacity to expect the international community to believe that he, as PM, was not privy to the decision to continue building in Har Homa, and now the extension of Maale Adumim. No country in the world accepts Israel's expanded definition of the boundaries of Jerusalem. it has simply broken its word for the sake of creating fqcts on the ground before international pressure becomes insurmountable. One thing is certain. bush will not confront Israel on its violation in this election yr. Israel may continue to build in the occupied territories, but at the same time, it is digging a hole for itself.
