______________________________

Yediot Ahronot criticizes the Government’s policy on housing
construction in Jerusalem and asserts that, „They don’t care that
thousands of Jerusalem residents, quality people, are abandoning the
capital as long as another 300 residential units are completed in Har
Homa or thousands of residential units are built in the E-1 area next to
Maaleh Adumim.” The editors contend that construction of the security
fence around Jerusalem is leading Arabs with Israeli ID cards, who lived
in Arab areas beyond the fence, to move back into Arab neighborhoods
inside the fence. The paper claims that this, in turn, is leading
eastern Jerusalem Arabs, especially professionals, to escape rising
housing costs in eastern Jerusalem by renting or buying flats in Jewish
neighborhoods, especially French Hill.
Ma’ariv suggests that Labor Party Chairman and Defense Minister Ehud
Barak’s participation in the Annapolis meeting alongside Prime Minister
Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and his avowed support for
the Annapolis process, „are, in effect, blurring the differences between
the two largest political parties’ diplomatic views.” The editors aver
that, „The Labor Party, which – for years – had been the party that set
Israeli policy, is beginning to lose its uniqueness and is being
portrayed as Kadima Junior.”
