MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) said Sunday that the decision to build hundreds of apartments in Jewish neighborhoods beyond the green line was in accord with the mainstream political consensus.

"Building and strengthening the Jewish neighborhoods in greater Jerusalem are the common and agreed upon goals of most of the big, Zionist parties," Schneller said.  "Opponents of this building are sacrificing Zionist national interest for narrow political purposes."

He went on to say that advancing an internationally-backed political settlement with the Palestinians would rely on Israel's steadfastness to its interests, not giving in to the "Diaspora mentality some of us have."
