    The 1600 units as we all know...maybe not all...was in a Jewish area of Jerusalem. It is an area that in any agreement is going to go to Israel. That's why it was phony. It was just aPR game played by the Pals to garner undeserved world sympathy, and it worked. The world thought...falsely...that Israel was doing something to steal land from the Pals. Nothing was further from the truth. That area was recognized to be Israeli land, and in any final peace agreement was slated to go to Israel. So the whole issue in Jerusalem while a PR victory for the Pals was in fact a phony issue that simply played well for the Pals. Sadly, the world fell for another of the Pals drummed up nonsense. Hopefully the Pals will have a state next year and with it the responsibility to control Hamas and the groups like them. Because a rocket attack from Gaza at that point be an act of war by a "country" against another legitimate country. Meaning full retaliation will be the proper response by Israel.
