PNN -On Tuesday, Palestinian mayor of Jerusalem Adnan al-Husseini joined a PLO Negotiation Departmenet tour of the village of Beit Safafa, outside of Jerusalem, where the Israeli government has planned 2600 new residential units. Al-Husseini said the settlement aimed to handicap the establishment of a Palestinian state.

The new settlement units will result in the confiscation of Beit Safafa farmland and the separation of families. Al-Husseini also claimed the effort to separate Jerusalem from other Palestinian cities was intended to stop Palestinians from getting part of the city as their capital.
Al-Husseini e asked the PLO delegation and accompanying journalists from Europe and North America to present the reality to their countries and peoples and called on them to expose the Israeli government’s “extremist polices.”
The tour also stopped by Cremisan, a region of Beit Jala near Bethlehem, where Israeli bulldozers have begun razing land and uprooting olives trees to build the wall, according to Ashraf al-Khatib, a media advisor in the PLO Negotiation Department.
