Israel annexing East Jerusalem, says EU. Yes, there is a confidential document in EU saying Israel is annexing East Jerusalem. Annexing.

A bit late, no? In 1967, East Jerusalem was merged with West Jerusalem. In 1980, they passed the Jerusalem Law that further entrenched this annexation. Israel makes no balls about having annexed East Jerusalem. So now EU (and others) are acting all prissy about Israel pursuing development in East Jerusalem.

For a continent that remembers the fall of the Berlin Wall fondly, they seem excited by the prospects of splitting a city right down the middle.
