Gush Etzion Chair: Freeze Sends Message of Weakness


Chairman Davidi Perl of the Gush Etzion Regional Council in Judea, reacted, Tuesday morning to a report of a new building freeze in Judea and Samaria (Shomron) by saying, "During a period in which we deal with external and internal threats and challenges and see an escalation in terrorist activities in the field, any construction freeze sends a message of weakness and invites more pressure on Israel."

Perl also said, "Strengthening the settlement enterprise in Judea and Samaria is the order of the day and implementation of the will of the voter who elected the national camp in the last election."
