    "President Shimon Peres told visiting European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on Thursday that Israel reserved the right to build in Jerusalem," Oh, OK, that makes it legit then. You know, the conqueror has "reserved the right" to colonize a conquered city, and so that "right" is now unimpeachable. Why didn't Saadam think of that when he conquered Kuwait City? Biff! Bam!!!! Whammo! Hussein: I got dibs on Kuwait! See! See! Bush Snr: Damn! The man was too quick! Sorry, Peres, the EU insists that all Israeli construction in East Jerusalem is illegal. And as far as the EU is concerned your claiming "dib, dib, dibs on East Jerusalem" doesn't make that construction "legal".
