No Restrictions on Building in Jerusalem

Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu declared there will be no restrictions on building in Jerusalem. “We are not imposing any restrictions on construction in Jerusalem”, he said.
He went on to say that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and Israel will not restrict construction in its capital.

In the Associated Press report on this story there is mention that the European Union is protesting Jewish construction in Jerusalem.

But what is not in the story is more interesting.

The Obama Administration is not on record as joining the chorus of critics. In the past, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Susan Rice all criticized Jewish construction in Jerusalem. But as election day draws near the Obama Administration seems to have made the strategic decision not protest. Could this be a real change of heart on their part or is it a political decision?
