Despite the condemnations - Israel continues to build in East Jerusalem. Just a few days ago Jerusalem's Planning and Construction Committee authorized the establishment of a new Jewish neighborhood near the Mount of Olives. It will constitute an extension of a Yeshiva school named "Bet Orot", which now operates in several caravans. .According to the plan, four residential buildings will be built, which will accomodate 24 Jewish families. The territory on which the new neighborhood will be built is situated east of the Old City on private property and for this reason construction on the spot is not subject to the government's consideration. The person responsible for the project is Jewish-American Erwin Moskowitz, who is considered the primary funder of the Jewish settlement in east Jerusalem, mainly in the City of David.
