In a press conference which coincided with the Prime Minister’s statement to the media, Likud MK Tzipi Hotobeli spoke out against Netanyahu’s agreement to freeze construction in Judea and Samaria. In the following video Hotobeli asserts that Netanyahu made a misstep:

 “I think the strategic mistake in the Prime Minister’s speech is the separation between Jerusalem, East Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria – the separation doesn’t exist in the Likud’s ideology, we’ve always believed that Judea and Samaria are part of our biblical heritage at just same level as Jerusalem and we expect this government... just like it insists on building in Jerusalem – we expect the same insistence in Judea and Samaria as well."
