"US Shouldn't Intervene in Jerusalem Building"


Jerusalem City Council member Meir Turgeman came out in support of building in Jerusalem and against any building freezes as part of the negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. In an interview with Arutz Sheva news on Wednesday he stated, "Gilo is a neighborhood in Jerusalem and is as legitimate as any other neighborhood." He decried the United States State Department's suggestion that Israel impose a moratorium on building to coax the PA back to the negotiating table. Turgeman has been a resident of Gilo almost since it's reestablishment as a modern neighborhood in 1973.
