Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday that a settlement construction freeze in the West Bank would not be permanent. "A reduction on building in Judea and Samaria will only be for a limited period," he said. "There is still no agreement with the Americans on the period of the freeze." A day after meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo in an effort to restart the peace process with the Palestinians, Netanyahu went on to say "The Palestinians expected a complete settlement freeze, and now it's clear that this won't happen." "We're balancing both the will to make a gesture, in order to re-launch the peace process, and the need to let Judea and Samaria residents live a normal life, and also to continue building public structures."
