"Israel believes East Jerusalem row won't stop Mideast talks" OK, but it has done a fair amount to damage trust with the American govt. and if Israel wants our help in dealing with the Iran nuke issue, we need to know that the Israeli govt.can be trusted. Tehran has got to be happy as can be about those 1600 housing units and the israel's govt. so blatently humiliating Biden. Good luck when Iran gets da bomb! At least then we won't have to pay you guys 3 billion a year not to use your nukes, you will have a different incentive not to (MAD) and we can spend that "aid" we currently give you on our own country.
