Edelstein on Opposition to Construction: It Amazes Me!


MK Yuli Edelstein (Likud) responded Tuesday night to criticism over building permits issued in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood of Jerusalem.
"It just amazes me! The same people who every Monday and Thursday claim there is no housing Jerusalem, no employment, and therefore people are leaving Jerusalem, and negative demographics, and so on - are now complaining that we are building," he said. "Where are we going to build if not in Ramat Shlomo and Givat Hamatos? Do they want us to build skyscrapers in the center of the city? "
