Interior Minister Eli Yishai said that the government will continue to advance new construction projects in Jerusalem, and that it is clear there will not be a building moratorium in the capital.

"I thank G-d that I have the right to serve as a minister who approves [the construction of] thousands of housing units in Jerusalem," Yishai said in an interview with the haredi newspaper Yom le'Yom published on Thursday.

The minister reportedly went on to claim that all the left-wing people in Israel share the goal of "a small Jewish Jerusalem, without east Jerusalem and the Arab neighborhoods," as well as "stopping the growth of the haredi community in the capital."
