      'State Dept. Opposes US Law, Kerry's Senate Record'


      The National Council of Young Israel (NCYI) has fired back at the State Department for its criticism of Israel's announced building plans for Jerusalem, which would see over 500 housing units made available for Jews in the eastern part of the capital.

      NCYI argued Israel has a right to build housing for its citizens, a right particularly important given the ongoing housing crisis.
