The move was greeted with high praise in Israel, while the Palestinians and pretty much everyone else condemned the decision, saying it could undermine the peace process, and lead to a spike in settlements being built.

But ICYMI says, let’s be honest, there is no peace process, and the settlements are being built anyway!
