Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman opened his mouth:-

"We greatly regret the recent decision to allow the construction of new homes in East Jerusalem," spokesman Ulrich Wilhelm told reporters at a regular news conference.

"Settlement building in East Jerusalem is a major stumbling block on the road towards sustainable progress in the Middle East peace process," he said, adding Merkel would discuss the matter with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu next week.

Major?

Regret?

Well, Germany is just going to have to get over it.

The city of Berlin was eventually unified.

Jerusalem was eventually unified.

Jerusalem shall remain unified.

That is the major reality.

And no regrets.
