Fact about Gilo
Gilo is located in illegally occupied East Jerusalem and colonising it is therefore illegal
" .....the occupying power shall not deport or otherwise transfer part of its civilian population into the occupied territory. "

The majority of Gilo, is built on land legally purchased by Jews prior to 1948. In the 1948 war, Jewish lands in Gilo were captured and illegally confiscated by the Jordanian government. From 1948-67, Jewish landowners did not relinquish ownership to their land in Gilo, and when Israel recaptured the land in the Six-Day War, Gilo was built – not because of war victories, but because of longstanding legal land purchases.
Gilo lies within Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries and is geographically contiguous to surrounding Jewish neighborhoods that pre-dated the 1967 reunification of the city.
Only in Armbach's world it is illegal for Jews to own land just shows what kind of a person he is.

"The majority of Gilo, is built on land legally purchased by Jews prior to 1948......"
Now I don't know if this is true or false, but given your propensity to be economical with the actuality...
But let us assume for the sake of argument that it is so.
Which Jews ? And what is the connection between these Jews ( the ones that bought the land before 1948 ) and the Israelis that Israel is using to colonise the occupied territory ?

Armbach unfortunately for you anything I post has been fact checked - the same cannot be said for what you write. You want to know who owns the land go to the Land Registry it's a public register and you can find out the names of Jews who own which parcels.
Israel cannot colonise what belongs to it - unlike the British in India or anywhere else the British called the Empire the Jews' legal rights to the whole of Palestine were recognised by the League of Nations and ratified by the United Nations - this is a fact with which you will have to live.
And by the way, idiot, Gilo is not in the fairyland you call "East Jerusalem." Get yourself a map.....Gilo isn't even within walking distance of east Jerusalem. It's at the very southern edge of the city, right before you bump into Beit Jalla, which abuts Bethlehem to the south. Ah more facts.
