But seriously, how is building a few houses "imperialism"?
I find it particularly interesting because looking at a map of the Middle-East I see that the Arabs rule over many many territories and peoples, the Jews being the only ones who resisted their attacks. And by "resisted" I mean they avoided a genocide like in Sudan and gas attacks like in Kurdistan.
And you see imperialism where?
Is it also "imperialism" when Arab countries build houses in their cities or is that one of those Jewish things?
Anyway, let's hear it for the smallest empire of all time! The Vast Empire of Isra (there is not enough room on the map for the "el"), may it last forever, as G-d promised.
(In case you are honestly worried about imperialism in the Middle-East, there are thousands of African refugees in Israel who can tell you stories that go beyond even the horrors of family homes and children with kippas.)
Incidentally, there is no wall going through Jerusalem and the wall AROUND Jerusalem has not been finished either. I guess your clerics must have been in another city. That can happen. Or they make up complaints about the Jews as they go along. That can happen too.
