Likud MK Tzipi Hotovely on Sunday morning issued a fierce criticism of military guidelines to enforce the second stage of the West Bank building freeze, which entail participation of the air force, use of force and a cellular blackout. "The defense minster's unbridled enthusiasm about freezing construction in Judea and Samaria has completely confused him as to the State of Israel's real enemies," she said. The decision to enforce the freeze "as though it were a military operation, by marking residents as enemies, is unreasonable," she added. "I call on the prime minister to get involved in the issue immediately, and cancel this disproportional deployment."
