Hah! Take that, Barry!

Right. No kidding. Netanyahu says something that should not need to be said. Jerusalem is not a settlement! If Bibi's new spine is a result of the elections last Tuesday, that's one result I can get on board with.

And, to be fair, guess who it was that I first noticed lumping the eastern part of Jerusalem (you know, the capital city of Israel) with "settlements" in "the West Bank"? Yup. Condoleeza Rice. Obama is far more virulently anti-Israel than Bush, but Bush was in some ways more dangerous, because Israel, viewing him as a friend, made more concessions for him.

Well, if we're going to play that game, I should point out that far from everything that Israel has annexed as "Jerusalem" is Jerusalem, as measured by the boundaries of the former Jordanian city.

Whoop-de-do, and good for the Israelis. Wish they'd act like it, then, and build, build, build.
