Jerusalem's mayor pressed ahead Monday with a plan to raze 22 Palestinian houses in east Jerusalem to make room for an Israeli tourist center, a decision that could stir new tensions in the divided city and put Israel in conflict with the Obama administration.
A Jerusalem planning body on Monday approved a plan to raze 22 Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem to make room for an Israeli tourist center, a decision that could raise tensions in the divided city and deepen the conflict with the Obama administration.
Part of the push to get Jerusalem into movie theaters is to present a more positive image of the city than the conflict seen in the news _ "the Jerusalem that more than 3.5 billion people of faith around the world wish to see," said Stephan Miller, spokesman for Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat.
"Now, after fine-tuning the plan and seeking more cooperation with the residents as far as their needs and improving the quality of their lives, the municipality is ready to submit the plans for the first stage of approval," said Mr. Barkat's spokesman, Stephan Miller, before the city's planning commission agreed to the plan.
