UNITED NATIONS - Israel's decision to accelerate planning for some 1,000 new settler homes in east Jerusalem raises serious doubts about the Israeli commitment to peace with the Palestinians, a senior UN official said on Wednesday.

An Israeli government official said on Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will expedite preparations for new settler homes in east Jerusalem.

The Israeli plans, along with Palestinian concerns about Jerusalem's holy sites, prompted the Palestinians to ask Jordan to request an emergency UN Security Council meeting in the hope that its 15 members would condemn recent Israeli actions. Diplomats said the council was unlikely to take any action.
