The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Thursday voiced support for the settlement construction freeze which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced Wednesday, calling the move "courageous and unprecedented step" in resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict. In a statement, Robert G. Sugarman, ADL National Chair, and Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director said, "This politically difficult decision unquestionably demonstrates Israel's deep and ongoing commitment to reaching a negotiated peace agreement with the Palestinians. " We join with Israel and the United States in calling on the leadership of the Palestinian Authority and the Arab world to respond meaningfully to this significant step by Israel, and take their own meaningful action to promote reconciliation, peace and security with Israel," the statement added.
