Minister Ariel Up in Arms Over PM's Newest Building Freeze

In a near-counterintuitive move, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu imposed a building freeze in Judea and Samaria after the talks with the Palestinian Authority fell apart several weeks ago. Ironically, it was just such a freeze that the PA had demanded as the price for keeping the talks going.

As a result of the freeze, Housing Minister Uri Ariel on Sunday abstained in a vote to allocate a budget to buy a plane for the use of Netanyahu, sources told Arutz Sheva Sunday.
