Netanyahu Presented With Plan To Separate Eastern Jerusalem Neighborhoods

4

Member of Knesset Dr. Anat Berko (Likud) presented Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with a plan to separate some eastern neighborhoods in Yerushalayim from the main city and place them under Palestinian municipal responsibility, The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday.

The majority of the neighborhoods discussed in Berko’s plan were never officially in Yerushalayim’s jurisdiction. Berko is proposing that Palestinian residents of the eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods should eventually have their Israeli citizenship revoked.

The Jerusalem Post also reported that this week’s discussions between Netanyahu and President Donald Trump addressed the issue of potentially transferring some municipal authority in eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods to the Palestinian residents of those communities.

In a separate and purportedly unrelated move, Israel’s National Security Council is deliberating the option of separating the Shuafat refugee camp and the Kfar Aqab neighborhood from Yerushalayim’s municipal area, and creating an independent regional council for those areas, Israel’s Channel 10 reported Wednesday.

  1. Am I mistaken or what, for wasn’t there a war to get everything together, and now it is time to separate??? I wonder whose suggestion was that and is this part of the 2 state solution, piece for peace plan again. (why is always Israel’s piece for peace) A country cannot live with 2 kings who is the real king??? And money always has strings attached.
