Judea Building Plan as Consolation to Terror Release?

According to a report on Channel 2 TV, Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu may announce the approval of major construction plans for Yehuda (Judea) and Shomron (Samaria). The announcement would coincide with the release of another group of terrorists convicted of murder as a gesture to the Palestinian Authority. The announcement may be seen as a consolation to the unpopular prisoner releases, especially in light of the rash of terrorist attacks this week. As one of the fastest growing demographics in the country, Samaria and Judea is facing a housing crisis. Throughout Israel, there is a much higher demand then supply of housing units.
