    Why don't you protest the Arabs building in East Jerusalem? After all, Jerusalem was supposed to be an international city, as declared by the UN in 1947, However, Jordanian troops took over the city, and for the next 19 years. they destroyed every single Jewish holy site. They used Jewish headstones as latrines. They destroyed every synagogue, and any evidence that the Jews created and lived in the city. The only relatively untouched relic was the Western Wall, which holds up the Mosques which the Muslims built on the Temple Mount. No, you would not bring that up because you are an anti-Semite. You only criticize the Jews, and have never criticized a single Arab act of terror. Incidentally, you are also poorly informed, for the Jews purchased Har Homa from the Arabs. The land was bought by an American Jew. The Jews have a legal right to build on land that is theirs.
