Calm Yourself, Biden

No, Joe Biden's visit was not the best time to announce the construction of 1,600 new apartments in Ramat Shlomo, a charedi community in north (not east) Jerusalem.

OK, fine.

Let's stop all the silly self-flagellation. Ramat Shlomo was founded in 1995 by Yitzhak Rabin. It is squarely in Jerusalem, and is by no means a "settlement."

Only because of the egregious concessions offered by the two Ehuds is Israel now in a situation where every new apartment in Jerusalem is international news.

In 2008 - when Ehud Olmert and Tzipi Livni were running Israel, hardly a peep was heard when 1,300 housing units were authorized there.

If Joe Biden is as close a friend as he says he is, he should calm down, let this one slide. Pretend it's no big deal, like a few "settlers" getting shot dead, or the "moderate" Palestinian Authority naming a Ramallah town square after a terrorist who murdered 37 civilians.

Alas, we are saddled with an administration whose first instinct is to rip Israel.
