    -Unemployment rate
    -Water availability per head
    -Parks per 10,000 population
    – Home demolitions by religion

      Add to that the spend per head and access to medical services, social services, mental health services, not to mention the spend on municipal services like pavement repairs and rubbish collection.

    Obama only cares about affirmative action for American blacks, not for Palestinians. He’s already on record saying so–in case you miss it.

    “Israeli and municipal authorities have allocated only 13 percent of East Jerusalem for Palestinian construction, compared with 35 percent for Israeli settlements. While Israel has built 50,000 housing units for Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem, it has built virtually none for Palestinians, according to Israeli nongovernmental organizations.”
