While Obama forced Jewish construction to be frozen, the Arabs have rapidly built without restrictions.
A striking aspect of the so-called building freeze in Judea and Samaria that expired last week is that an enormous amount of construction went on throughout the last 10 months. The Arabs of Judea and Samaria were not only building without restrictions, the US, Europe and the Arab states of the Persian Gulf bankrolled much of their construction.
The presumptive purpose of the freeze was to prevent Israel from creating “facts on the ground” that would prejudice the outcome of the so-called peace talks with Fatah. This goal is justified on the basis of the Palestinian misinterpretation of a clause in the 1995 agreement between Israel and the PLO in which they agreed that “neither side shall initiate or take any step that will change the status of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip pending the outcome of the permanent status negotiations.”
The clause was never intended to refer to construction, and “neither side,” of course, relates to both Israel and the Palestinians.
But since the agreement was signed, while the Palestinian misinterpretation has been widely adopted, only one side has been held to account.

You cant deny that Saudi Arabia has a desire to expand Islam. The Islamic Kingdom is building Mosques in London and New York, and even sponsor Western Universities to help them start up Islamic studies.
But that United States, the European Union and United Kingdom spend hundreds of millions av dollars to build an Islamic stats at the gates of Jerusalem, might surprise taxpayers in the West. Because it is you money your Government spend in Ramallah.
This is a fruit of Islamic terrorism. Politicians in Madrid and Washington feel it is better to submit to the demand of Islam, than to risk more terrorism in their cities. On the alter is the state of Israel. Better that the Zionist state disappear, than that there will another tunnel bombing in London.
