Construction and Housing Minister Ariel Attias on Wednesday stressed that recently approved plans to develop areas across the Green Line are "neither intended to harm [PA President Mahmoud] Abbas nor the product of electoral considerations," according to Army Radio.

The Shas MK proceeded to ask rhetorically, "Who did not build in Jerusalem?"

"From [Yitzhak] Rabin to Ehud Barak," Israeli leaders have built in the capital, Attias said.

Attias concluded by saying that "in the end all we want is to build so that people can have a roof over their heads."
