Gush Etzion Leader - Construction is a Must
Chairman Davidi Perl of the Gush Etzion Regional Council called out European officials, Monday, for their resistance to construction in Judea and Samaria, saying it is unfound. "Where were the European foreign ministers when the residents of Israel were suffering due to massive gunfire from Gaza? Construction in Judea and Samaria is a must," he said.
"Judea and Samaria will continue to develop and flourish as per the decisions of the government, both past and present, despite the position of EU foreign ministers. I strengthen the hand of the government of Israel and call on them to stand strong against European pressure," he added.
