Shas Minister: Freeze Is Inhumane and Immoral

Religious Services Minister Yacov Margi of the Shas party said during a visit to the Haredi religious city of Betar Illit that the decision to freeze Jewish construction is inhumane and immoral. Margi said that a mechanism should be established for exceptions and that as long as it does not exist the decision is faulty. Margi also said that he would ask Netanyahu and Barak to reconsider the freeze, at least regarding the settlement blocs.

The Shas party absented themselves from the cabinet vote on the freeze.
