Honestly, it really doesn't bother me what the world thinks of Jewish building for Jewish Life in the Land of Israel, places like Shiloh. Let others say whatever they wish, because we have been here in Shiloh as Jews long before their societies wherever.
I don't expect the world to approve our building. They didn't condemn Hitler and the Nazis for trying to annihilate European Jewry. They only mouthed "condemnation" after the Nazis had been defeated. I have no doubt that most of the world would have had been perfectly happy if Hitler had murdered many more than the six million Jews who died because of his policies.
So, let them continue to condemn us.
They have no moral authority, as far as I'm concerned.
Israel continued to take a pounding overseas on Thursday for announcements of construction activity beyond the Green Line, with EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton issuing veiled threats, France questioning Israel’s commitment to peace and Quartet envoy Tony Blair issuing a sharp denunciation.

The majority of Israelis support Jewish building in Judea and Samaria. IMRA quotes: "Maagar Poll: 51%:31% Support continued Jewish construction in Judea and
Samaria." Unfortunately Israeli politicians are more swayed by the the extreme Lefties who control the media here. But I hope they recognize that most Israelis are actually on the Right of the political spectrum. That's what the polls continue to show.
No doubt that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's proclamations that he'll be building are for the Election campaign because he wants votes. That's the name of the game... The United Nations, United States, European Union ad nauseum don't vote in Israeli Elections, B"H, thank G-d.
Include that in our human rights campaign. We're human; aren't we? Here are a few local building projects. Some are just home expansions, and others are larger, including a multi-family homes.
