[quote:Anonymous Coward 25799108:MV8yMDY3OTQwXzM0Nzk4OTYzX0ZBREE4OTY3] The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze me. The U.N. declared the State of Israel in 1947. But ever since, Arab people and states have constantly called for Israel's annihilation or have harassed, hurt or killed it's occupants trying to run them out, paying no attention to the validity of the United Nations decision. Now, Israel is daring to stand up and defend the ground they have (and have had for thousands of years) and ignoring the UN mandate themselves. How dare they? [/quote]
Israel Announces West Bank Construction a Day After UN Vote

JERUSALEM — Israel approved the construction of 3,000 new homes in Jerusalem and the West Bank less than 24 hours after the U.N. General Assembly voted to recognize Palestine as a non-member observer state.
Israel also intends to move ahead on procedures necessary to plan for construction in a West Bank area between the Jewish settlement of Maaleh Adumim and Jerusalem, two government officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.
The Palestinian Authority, the United Nations, and the United States consider all Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal.
The area between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim is particularly sensitive because Israeli construction there may cut off Palestinians from their aspirational capital in east Jerusalem in a future peace accord.
Israel settlements and east Jerusalem construction “are counterproductive and make it harder to resume direct negotiations or achieve a two-state solution,” White House Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said in an email Friday.
So who really wants the Middle East thrown into war?
