The E-1 Settlement is not Ma’aleh Adummim


Allegedly, the E1 controversy pertains to the city of Ma’aleh Adummim to the east of Jerusalem. But E1 is not a part of Ma’aleh Adummim. The proposed building in E1 differs in principle from building in the city of Ma’aleh Adummim both topographically and in terms of its political ramifications. E1’s inclusion within Ma'aleh Adummim's municipal boundaries was designed to give the impression that they are one and the same, but this is not the case.
