    The Oslo Accords gave Israel control over Area C (including E1)-not sovereignty…so construction there would be a clear violation.
    As it is the ground that Ma’ale Adumim sits on was to be conferred on Israel Only AFTER the completion of the agreement as to the division of Jerusalem.
    So in effect using Ma’ale Adumin as a pretext is in itself using a violation to secure another violation.
    Perhaps a fait accompli..or might makes right..
    I have heard that phrase before.

      If it was Israel’s intention to never divide Jerusalem in any way then it entered into and signed the Agreements under false pretexts

        The interpretation of civil control is ambiguous -nevertheless the E1 area and the adjacent Ma’ale Adumin were the area to be conferred after the Jerusalem agreement-as such it could not have been an Area C until a formal transfer-at which time it would become an integral part of Israel.
