Israeli right wing to lay corner stone latest East Jlem settlement

Oct. 6, 2009 6:54 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 7, 2009 2:57 P.M.)
Bethlehem – Ma’an/Agencies – Thousands of right-wing Israelis will attend the laying of the foundation stone for East Jerusalem’s newest settlement on Wednesday, as construction of the illegal homes and communities continues on occupied Palestinian land.

According to the Israeli Hebrew-language Ma’ariv newspaper, the ceremony will take place at 4pm, and will be attended by Israeli Minister of the Interior Eli Yishai, Rabbi Meir Lau, and several other members of the Israeli Knesset.

This project is the second phase of building on Mount Scopus in what is being billed as the Israeli neighborhood of Nof Zion. One-hundred and five new housing units will be built in the starting phase, financed by Jewish investors from the United States under the Digal Investments & Holdings Ltd registration. The group’s website lists an American sales director as the primary contact. “The winding alleys of the Old City, the Temple Mount, the city walls, the Mount of Olives and the City of David will be all yours!” the website tells prospective buyers. A Synagogue, shopping mall and hotel are also in the works on the land.
