      Danon: We'll Build in E-1 As We Built in Har Homa

      Member of Knesset Danny Danon (Likud) called, Thursday evening, for Israeli construction in the E-1 corridor between Jerusalem and the eastern suburb of Ma'aleh Adumim. Addressing a crowd estimated at around 15,000, the deputy defense minister said, "We are telling the prime minister [and Likud party chairman Binyamin Netanyahu], the Likud is not a contractor for [carrying out the wishes of] Tzipi Livni and Zehava Gal-On."

      Referring to a development in southern Jerusalem, Danon continued, "Just as Netanyahu built in Har Homa during his first term, when the Americans threatened and pressured and the Palestinians pressured, and today there are 6,000 dwelling units and kindergardens, we will also build thousands of homes here."
