Are you also saying that permits will not be issued to Muslims?
Permits issued by israel to build mosque for palestinians on palestinian land stoled by israel?
I think israel only issue permits to its tanks and bulldozers.
I cited the permit because the article said that a permit was not obtained. As I said, here in America you must obtain a permit as well
Hagit Ofran of the Israeli organization 'Peace Now” stated that during the period from 2000 until September 2007 the Israeli Civil Administration denied more than 94% of requests submitted by Palestinians for building permits. in fact, only 91 construction permits were granted to Palestinians, while in the same time period 18,472 housing units were constructed in the settlements (According to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, completed construction in the Settlements from 2000 till September 2007)
Israelis face the same application procedures for building permits as Palestinians in East Jerusalem, yet since 1967 Israel has sponsored the construction of nearly 50,000 units for Israelis only, while fewer than 600 government-sponsored housing units have been built in the Palestinian sector, with the most recent being 30 years old, according to the Israeli non-profit Ir Amim
