2. 1213 new homes
e ,   los angeles   (11.06.12)
keep building until a deal is reached with the arabs.
3. Yehudit - which peace overtures by Abbas?
William ,   Israel   (11.06.12)
I must have missed those. All I heard was his demand to flood Israel with millions of hostile foreigners and a border on 1949 Armistice Lines which is illegal; even without a promise to end aggression against the Jewish State. Perhaps you were at a private conference we weren't invited to?
4. contradiction
David ,   Prague, Czech rep.   (11.06.12)
"The Ir Amim Organization, which promotes Israeli-Palestinian coexistence in Jerusalem opposes Jewish construction in the capital's east" - there is a contradition in it I would say. Or does a leftist definition of the word coexistence mean that NO JEWS ALLOWED it East JĀ“lem?
5. build baby build

not an inch !
6. Only value of leftist opinion is as reverse barometer.
Chaim ,   Israel   (11.06.12)
Throughout Israel's history, leftists have been infallibly wrong on every major issue. They still are. Leftist opinion is only valuable as a reverse barometer. What they oppose is good for Israel. What they like is bad for Israel.

8. Mazel Tov keep up the good work
Barney ,   USA   (11.06.12)
there is nobody to make peace with anyway.
9. jerusalem
yaakov ,   miami,jerusalem   (11.06.12)
self-hating jews, atheists; leftists; are a disgrace. islamonazis will hate The Jews from now til eternity; peace with sworn enemies is a mental disease. Jerusalem is holy to YHVH, build it to the sky, build the 3rd temple and the world will come to worship Yah in His holy mount.
10. I Support EJ building
David ,   USA   (11.06.12)
I support EJ building for JEWS. IF a final peace accord is reach ever then both sides know that certain areas around EJ will stay in Israeli hands. PAles have done nothing for peace and they will not compromise on anything. So it is a stalemate so keep buiilding.
11. IMPOSSIBLE to turn your back on a non-existant peace process
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.06.12)
It doesn't exist, pre-conditions prevent it from ever existing.
12. Only 1,213 new homes?
A ,   Belgium   (11.06.12)
How about 121,300 new JEWISH homes?
13. This is so typical of Israel
ThatOne ,   Canada   (11.07.12)
Threatening a legal action with illegal actions.
15. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.07.12)
There is nothing illegal about building homes in Israeli territory, now, is there? I do not think that Israel went far enough. The number of new homes should be doubled or tripled. No country has the right to dictate to Israel where or where not to build in its capital city. Does Israel tell Canada where or where not to build in Ottawa? Of course not. Then no one has the right to tell Israel where or where not to build in Jerusalem. Jerusalem has been Israel's capital for decades. Don't like it? Tough. And it is Israel which determines what its capital city is to be -- not anyone else.
16. Partioned City
william ,   canada   (11.07.12)
In the USA a Partioned city would be Illegal and even more Illegal for a President of the USA to condone the partioning of a city in the USA,Shalom...
17. We need 23, 000 homes not 2, 300
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (11.09.12)
Ironically these homes are good for peace as they create security and a clear border. However, they are not enough, for the need for housing in Jerusalem is great. Gilo is part of Jerusalem and in every past agreement it has been agreed that Gilo will remain part of Israel.
