Meanwhile At City Hall . . .

Nir-barkatJerusalem mayor Nir Barkat is proposing a major re-zoning plan for eastern Jerusalem. AP says it would legalize thousands of illegally built homes and also put an end to housing demolitions.

But AFP calls it

a move that could fuel tensions in the flashpoint Holy City.

Palestinians refuse to participate in local elections, saying they won't grant legitimacy to Israeli government institutions. Therein lies the rub.

The issue isn't about the merits of the mayor's proposal. It's about "the system" the proposal is coming from.
