Quote of the Day

If we were to come out now with big publicity for our plans, there would be people who would say that we are just trying to create new facts and tie Jerusalem more firmly to Israel, to make sure that the negotiators don't bargain East Jerusalem away to Jordan again.”

That's Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek discussing the low profile of the new District Town Planning Committee's rehabilitation plan for East Jerusalem -- as quoted in the New York Times dated 22 August, 1970.
