Bibi: Jerusalem "Not a Settlement"

Bibi Netanyahu has a flair for saying things that are memorable. In his speech to the UN, he uttered "have you no shame" to all those that entertained the idea that the Holocaust didn't exist. Now, referring to the expansion of settlements in Jerusalem, Netanyahu has uttered an equally memorable phrase.

The AIPAC crowd responded with notably more enthusiasm to Netanyahu's assertion that Jews had been building in Jerusalem for 3,000 years and that Israel would continue to do so.

"Jerusalem is not a settlement. It's our capital," Netanyahu said to a prolonged standing ovation.

The neighborhoods Israel has built in east Jerusalem are an "inextricable" part of
the city, the Israeli leader said, and will remain part of Israel under any peace agreement.

So, the tension continues to build between Israel and the U.S.

This isn't the first time an Israeli Politician has refered to Jerusalem as their "eternal, undivided capital."

I also think one has to consider how often governments change in Israel. If I recall correctly, last time Netanyahu was PM his tenure lasted less than 3 years.
