After Ban, Yesha Council Tells Olmert to 'Step Down'

The Yesha Council reacted to the letter Prime Minister Ehud Olmert sent to ministers informing them of his ban on building in Judea and Samaria by calling for Olmert and his government to step down.

The council issued this statement: "Any government which completely freezes the settlement of Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, has no right to exist."

Olmert has frozen any such building until March, in preparation for US President George W. Bush's visit next month.
