An EU report accuses Israel of attempting to annex east Jerusalem by expanding Jewish settlements, demolishing Arab homes, implementing discriminatory housing policies and exploiting the West Bank security fence, The Guardian reported Saturday morning. According to the document, dated December 2008, Israel's demolitions are "illegal under international law, serve no obvious purpose, have severe humanitarian effects, and fuel bitterness and extremism."
