"There has been 16 years of negotiations with the Palestinians - and throughout that entire period, Israel's policy on Jerusalem remained unchanged"? Ummmm, really? and, "any Jew or Arab has the right to build legally in Jerusalem, as in any other city in the country." Mr. Oren, does a "right" really exist when it's systematically denied? I've no doubt that Mr. Oren is a good man, but he is essentially little more than a mouthpiece for the Israeli government. He's saying what he's been instructed to say, and what he's he's is just as meaningless as it's been every other time its been said.
