Science and Technology Minister Daniel Hershkowitz praised Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday for “protecting Israeli interests”  by refusing to accept American demands to freeze construction in Jerusalem.

“We are not a leftist government, and construction in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, is in the consensus,” Channel 10 quoted Hershkowitz as saying. 

Hershkowitz, chairman of Habayit Hayehudi party, added that Israel “Is not looking for a dispute with our great friend [the US] but our responsibility is to the Israeli people. We are an independent state, not an American satellite.”
