See Eldar article in the same issue - "The land is slated to be used for a new Palestinian road that would connect East Jerusalem with Jericho. That in turn would "free up" the E-1 area between Jerusalem and Ma`aleh Adumim - through which the current Jerusalem-Jericho road runs - for a long-planned Jewish development consisting of 3,500 apartments and an industrial park. " Now sounds much more credible. We all got used to empty talk by the government officials about Palestinian state in some unspecified future - it is a great cover for annexation projects in Jerusalem and West Bank which are carried out on the ground. This PR trash by Ramon can be safely ignored.
