Israeli right-wing minister taunts Obama on Twitter over Jerusalem construction

US President Barack Obama received a rude welcome on his newly opened personal Twitter account on Tuesday from a right-wing Israeli minister who made it clear the new government in Jerusalem has no plans to cease construction in disputed areas of the capital.

Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel of the pro-settler Bayit Yehudi party wrote: “Welcome! Happy Jerusalem Day! in case u didn׳t hear PM Netanyahu: "Jerusalem won’t be divided again, we build all over the city."
