Israeli building plan clouds talks

An Israeli building programme planned for East Jerusalem is set to overshadow a meeting between Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

Thursday's summit between Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, and Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, is the first since the two agreed to renew peace talks at the US-sponsored Annapolis meeting last month.

The Jerusalem dispute has already clouded earlier meetings between negotiating teams.

Last month, Israel announced tenders for 307 new apartments in Har Homa, part of a ring of settlements built on confiscated Palestinian land in east Jerusalem.

Fighters captured

Meanwhile, in the occupied West Bank, Israeli soldiers captured two senior members of the Islamic Jihad group in raids on Thursday, Palestinian security sources and witnesses said.

Israeli troops arrested Mohammad Assayda near Nablus, the Islamic Jihad said.

  • why do israelis always say that they are not doing what infact they are. They always have some bizarre way of twisting the truth.This continued building of new illegal settlements has to stop. Israel should also reign in those vicious bastard settlers who terrorise palestinians out of their homes in full view and with the blessing and more often than not help of the idf.

    Israel does belong to the Jews(although it of course has many Arab citizens as well!) - why shouldn't Jews settle in Jerusalem?Not more Arab apartheid surely?
