300 Homa Houses
Drive Palestinians Bonkers

The Editor

The Jerusalem Post

Sir,

Israel’s decision to build another 300 homes in Homa seems to be driving the Palestinians bonkers. Evidence that when you lose your temper you stop thinking clearly.

Look at it this way: Peace talks between the sides are to be held to agree a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. One of the many matters at stake is Homa.

Palestinians claim Homa as their territory. So do we. Obviously the winner gets all. So why do the Palestinians argue about 300 new homes? Surely they prefer to win a bigger than smaller Homa?

If they lose, what does it really matter if they lose the 300 newly built homes too?

I say build. Israel’s claim on Jerusalem is eons longer and stronger. Moreover, Homa is a fully integrated suburb of Jerusalem.

Sincerely
