The PA knows there is a chance Obama could only be president for two more years and they are swinging for the fences with such resolutions as jewish construction beyond the green line is illegal. Majority of people before 1948 in east jerusalem were jews so according to this resolution they can't even build on land that jews owned before 1948. The racist side of the PA is out and they are taking full advantage of the most left wing u.s president ever to get out the goody bag.
