The Israeli phrase of "facts on the ground" is nothing more than an attempt to legitimize Israeli human rights violations. Colonization of East Jerusalem is simply a continuance of violence against the Palestinians. Israel's actions are attempts to undermine the peace process and incite reactions from the Palestinians. Netanyahu and Lieberman are not honorable people seeking peace. The only way justice can be achieved is when the USA, EU, Russia and the UN act in unison to assure a viable, governable, contiguous and secure Palestine.
