Ethan Bronner today:
“Mr. Netanyahu’s governing coalition, anchored by his Likud Party, views Jerusalem, west and east, as the undivided, eternal capital of the Jewish people, where it can build where it wants. The Palestinians and their supporters throughout the Arab and Muslim worlds view East Jerusalem as holy and as rightfully under Palestinian sovereignty.”
Not false, but surely misleading. The entire world, including the US, has never accepted the legality of the occupation and settlements over the 1967 line. As the WaPo puts it today:
“The United States, like the rest of the world, has never recognized Israel's sovereignty over territory occupied in the 1967 war.”
It isn't Likud vs the Arab world; it's Likud vs the rest of the world.
