    vhardman certainly posts rubbish as a pastime. he thinks that because he is some sort of sewage engineer in the UK he understands what is going on in the West Bank vis a vis the Arabs in East Jerusalem inability to get more than 10 or 20 building permits per year. He thinks he understands the building requirements in the territories because he has laid a few sewage pipes. What he has not understood [the methane from raw sewage can be quite debilitating if inadequate respiratory protection is not adopted: see appropriate health and safety regs] is that in the West Bank and especially in E. Jerusalem there is a long standing political commitment to preventing Arabs from building and simultaneously facilitating Jewish building. This has little to do with typically arduous building regs and everything to do with ethnic cleansing of the Arab from the environs of Jerusalem and the 67 lines, as testified by former senior figures involved in the building program in Jerusalem in particular.
