Shai Alon, the head of the local council at Beit El, met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and heard from him that the construction of the 300 promised housing units in Beit El would take a long time.

Alon was also told that construction permits in Judea and Samaria would not be prepared in the near future - and he understood that there will be at least another six months in which building permits will not be issued.

Netanayhu had said during the weekly Likud faction meeting earlier Monday that his five year old promise to build 300 new housing units in Beit El would still be fulfilled.

Netanyahu said at the meeting that"the commitment to Beit El will be fulfilled soon, and I [also] remember Amona and the commitment to Migron, and it will not take 10 years, not even a year," he said.

A demonstration is planned for tonight outside the prime minister's residence tonight to protest against the freeze on construction in Judea and Samaria.
