Meretz chairman Haim Oron on Sunday backed a US demand that Israel halt construction of a housing project in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah. "Anyone deluding himself to the effect that east Jerusalem is not part of the territories and that Israel can continue to act in the West Bank and east Jerusalem as if there is no international community, receives a slap from time to time," Oron said. "Construction in the heart of Arab neighborhoods is not an Israeli interest but rather a real estate interest and the interest of those who wish to ignite the area. Israel must arrive at understandings with the United States, say yes to Obama and resume the peace process."
