    This "new city" is far from the FIRST in Yesha. Arabist apologists are quick to gloss over the many arab towns that have cropped up in Yesha since 1967 because it isn't fashionable to talk about them It's cooler to talk about "settlement expansion" when a new apartment bloc or parking lot goes up. Folks it's really simple, consider the population explosion among arabs in Yesha since 1967 as opposed to before. Is everybody living in the same houses, using the same water infrastructure? Of course not. I have asked the question frequently of how many arab towns have gone up since 1967 and have never gotten a reply....other than one dealing with towns from 48-67. yeah yeah yeah do the occupation shuffle. Hundreds of illegal arab settlements have gone up....which we never hear of, other than complaints of infrastructure not being extended to them, ohhh yeaahh, we forgot about that. how many arab towns since 1967? the rubberneckers can go surfing.
