      Hotovely: No Difference between Loud and Quiet Freeze

      Member of Knesset Tzipi Hotovely expressed her opposition, Tuesday, to an American proposal that Israel freeze construction by Jews in Judea and Samaria without officially proclaiming it. The Likud lawmaker said, in a statement, "After 10 months of a loud, unprecedented freeze, it's outrageous to see the Obama administration still believes that construction in the settlements represents a hurdle to negotiations."

      Hotovely stressed, "There is no difference between a quiet and a loud freeze. The public's unequivocal vote for the right will not lend a hand to another freeze of construction in Judea and Samaria, no matter what announcement the prime minister issues."
