The Yesha Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria on Sunday responded to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's consideration of a new 90 day building freeze saying, “this proposed deal, if accepted, represents a fundamental collapse of our Government’s integrity and national resilience."

"The Israeli leadership should never allow its citizens to become pawns to the whims of the international community.  We are our own sovereign nation whose very security and future should not be dictated by President Obama or Secretary Clinton,” a statement by the council read.

Yesha Council Chairman Danny Dayan further said, “The unilateral ten-month freeze accomplished nothing other than to make the notion of freezing the rights of our families to build a pre-condition for peace,” he said.  “If Israel is forced into another freeze, our nation will be entering into a trap where we are already addressing final status issues while the Palestinians have never made even a single concession. ”
