Describing Jerusalem

Googling the words "1100 housing units in Jerusalem," I came up with a number of articles about the decision of the Israeli government to approve new housing units in Gilo. As you can see from the image below, an AP article begins, "Israel's government on Tuesday granted the final go-ahead for the construction of 1100 new housing units in occupied east Jerusalem."
However, if you click on the link to the article, you can see that the word "occupied" has disappeared from the article. It still does appear in the caption underneath the picture on the right of the article.

Some sites which used the article still contain the word "occupied."




Another site prefaces east Jerusalem with the words "illegally occupied."
Israel's government has granted the go-ahead for construction of 1,100 new housing units in illegally occupied east Jerusalem, raising already heightened tensions fuelled by last week's Palestinian move to seek full UN membership.

Foxnews refers to the area as "occupied east Jerusalem."

Finally, Rabbi Lau describes Jerusalem in the hope of "Yerushalayim Habenuyah."
