US State Dept. chides PM's statement on J'lem building

In what has became a tit-for-tat of public statements, US State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley on Tuesday said of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's most recent statement: "To suggest that this kind of announcement would not have an impact on the Palestinian side I think is incorrect," AFP reported.
Responding to a PMO declaration that "Israel does not see any connection between the peace process and the policy of planning and construction in Jerusalem," Crowley retorted, "There clearly is a link in the sense that it is incumbent upon both parties... they are responsible for creating conditions for a successful negotiation," according to the report.
