UK Times opposes "new town" in Israel

The Times is predictably turning to more Israel-bashing, and seeking to undermine Israeli sovereignty. They say:
The sign in big, red Hebrew letters reads “Welcome to Mevasseret Adumim, the Harbinger of the Hills”. A three-lane road with roundabouts leads up the hill to a police station and street lamps line the flyover that links the new town to neighbouring Ma'aleh Adumim, one of the largest Jewish settlements in Israel.

There are no houses, cars or people in Mevasseret Adumim: it is a town laid out, waiting to be built. That is because international pressure has so far prevented construction from going ahead. The area is the last piece of open land linking Arab East Jerusalem to the West Bank and critics said that to develop it would bury the very notion of a two-state solution to the Middle East crisis.

According to reports in the Israeli media, the area has been earmarked for development under a secret accord between Binyamin Netanyahu, the new, conservative Israeli Prime Minister, and his ultra-nationalist Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman.

Better known under its old British mandate name, E1, it is the most controversial development project in the region, one that diplomats and observers warn will trigger the collapse of the weakened Palestinian Authority, or drive it into armed resistance again.
I wouldn't be surprised if what they speak of is actually just another neighborhood in the making, either for Maaleh Adumim itself or the one that's supposed to be built to connect Jerusalem and that area, and isn't exactly a new town. But the Times would rather their subjects in Britain think otherwise and fan more flames of hate against Israel. Notice how they also call Netanyahu a conservative and speak of a "secret deal" between him and Lieberman as a way of inciting against them.

The purpose of this is simply to help provide Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim with special safety elements, and part of the city's own natural growth process. And it's been in planning for some time already. So message to the Times: shut up.
