Israel Begins Building in E1
Israel has begun building in the E1 area between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim. So much for territorial contiguity. Building in E1 will cut the West Bank in half, effectively ending any possibility of a viable Palestinian state. The US, apparently, did not object, though on the other hand, Maaleh Adumim mayor Benny Kashriel thinks it’s an election ploy. In any event, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid.
