Another Settlement Thread, More Hatred

The Huffington Post couldn't wait to cover the news of Israel building more houses in Jerusalem. Regardless of what you think of the settlements, it's difficult to make the case that houses in east Jerusalem is "stealing Palestinian land" and "destroying the two state solution," considering Israel has controlled all of Jerusalem since it took control of east Jerusalem from Jordan in 1967. Naturally, the HP readership responded with their usual posts of Israel hatred, calling for Israel's destruction, and Holocaust comparisons.

That seems like perfectly rational responses to homes being built in a city.
