Israel said it will build thousands of new housing units in East Jerusalem, despite a U.N. resolution condemning their construction. We’ll explore the complicated economics of these settlements. Plus: We’ll look at a study that finds many police officers are moonlighting regularly to earn extra cash, and talk about the fierce competition at the movie theaters as the year winds down.
