Is Israel Justified Building in Jerusalem While Peace Talks Stall?

    With Netanyahus visit a total snubb by the US, is it resonable to expect any headway with peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel?

      Very doubtful. Israel is slitting its own throat and ours (U.S.) as well.

        I think while they may feel they have a perfect right and maybe even a legal right (sans any legal claims by possible Palestinian ownership of properties being built on),  is it wise to push through however detrimental it may look.

        Is the US going to follow along as usual because of our commitment to Israel even though it hurts the greater good?

        When is enough, enough?

    If Israel can just do whatever they want why do we continue to pump Billions of Foreign aid their way?

    Time to let them stand on their own... except for the fact that there are are so many High Ranking US Politicians and Appointees that are Jewish.

    Separation of Government and Religion is a fallacy.

      There are a bunch of Baptists that are lected, too.

      You think the Constitution means only atheists can be elected?

    Israel can do as they please and so can we.

    It was/is fine for us to stand up for Isreal when they were being bullied. Biw they are the bully, and they expect we will supply them with weapons and support when they are picking a fight. It won't happen, but we need to send a message that the US MIGHT not be there in a war if they refuse to pursue peace.
