A Jewish settlement movement has said that it plans to speed up construction of settlements in East Jerusalem in such a way that it will not be feasible to divide the city. reported that a new project by the Jewish Settlements in East Jerusalem Movement was inaugurated by Israeli officials on Wednesday. The site in the Palestinian Ras Al-Amoud area was described as “the tip of the iceberg”. Jewish settlements are illegal in international law but, say the Israeli settlers, are “an existing fact.”

The settlers’ movement boasts of “Jewish-owned properties in areas like Silwan, Shimon Hatzadik, Abu Dis and in the Old City”. Although there are delays due to bureaucracy and legal matters, the settlers are adamant: “The truth is that all of Jerusalem’s neighbourhoods are involved. You cannot divide Jerusalem. That’s the reality.”
