The report by the British consulate in East Jerusalem warned that Israeli actions reduce the already receding prospects for an eventual two-state
solution. "Israeli activities in Jerusalem are in violation of both its Roadmap (peace plan) obligations and international law," reports in the
UK's Guardian newspaper quoted the document as saying.
"This de facto annexation of Palestinian land will be irreversible without very large-scale forced evacuations of settlers and the rerouting of the
barrier," the report said.
"When the barrier is completed, Israel will control all access to East Jerusalem, cutting off its Palestinian satellite cities of Bethlehem and
Ramallah, and the West Bank beyond. This will have serious... consequences for the Palestinians."
The report also warned that Palestinians in Jerusalem were deeply alarmed about the status of the city.
"They fear that Israel will 'get away with it', under the cover of disengagement. Israeli measures also risk radicalising the hitherto relatively
quiescent Palestinian population of East Jerusalem."

The European Union has finely spoken up about their concerns with Israeli activities in east Jerusalem where they have been annexing Palestinian land
Which in line is going against the roadmap to peace?
I think this is great that the EU are finally saying something and not sitting quietly.
