So two interesting things come out of this article. Number 1, it is OFFICIAL Israeli policy that Jerusalem will never be divided. This is obvious contrary to many public statements of past PM's and also US policy. Number 2, at least Netanyahu is honest to stop pretending that the Israelis are serious about a landmark peace deal. This Israeli administration has basically confirmed that the Israeli rejectionist position has been policy all along. The past administrations would kowtow to US pressure publicly but still do what they always did ; confiscate more land illegally. But the past administrations at least tried not to rub the US's noses in it. This Netanyahu/Lieberman trust keeps exposing the true agenda. And then we have to listen to Hillary Clinton sing paeans about how the whole peace process collapsed, blaming the intransigence of both sides. Please.
