The White House isn't relenting in its strong criticism of Israel for plans to build 1,600 new apartments for young haredi families in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo.

US President Barack Obama's chief political adviser on Sunday said the Israeli approval of the construction plan, made during US Vice President Joe Biden's visit in Israel, was both an "affront" and an "insult."

David Axelrod told NBC's "Meet the Press" that the move undermines the fragile effort to bring peace to the troubled region. He says the timing of the announcement was "very destructive."
