All limits on construction in east Jerusalem will be lifted

The government is thankfully removing all limits on building in east Jerusalem:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told members of his security cabinet on Sunday that he has decided to remove all limits on advancing construction programs in eastern Jerusalem.

According to two senior officials quoted by Israeli newspaper Haaretz who were updated on the content of the meeting, which was not open to the media, Netanyahu also plans to promote more building in the settlement blocs – heavily populated neighborhoods and communities across the 1967 Green Line that Israel intends to retain in any future agreement with the Palestinians.

According to the paper, the prime minister’s decision was one of the factors that convinced the Jewish Home party, which flanks Netanyahu’s Likud from the right, to postpone a vote on a bill it is championing to annex Ma’ale Adumim, the largest settlement bloc.

According to unnamed diplomatic officials, Netanyahu told the ministers he supported keeping Ma’ale Adumim under Israeli sovereignty and said it “was clear to everyone that this will happen in any future agreement. Nevertheless, it is important not to surprise the new administration in the US only days after it enters office.”

Netanyahu, the official said, told the ministers that in his vision all Israeli communities in the West Bank will remain under Israeli sovereignty.
Yes, this is a very positive step, and just what the country needs now, for example.
