The Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip sent a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday, calling on him to have Defense Minister Ehud Barak immediately sign on September 26 orders allowing for the building of West Bank projects that have already passed through all the relevant planning committees.

The letter called on Netanyahu to make his intentions known to approve the construction even before he goes to Washington, and that if Barak refuses to sign, for the prime minister to do so himself.

“Avoiding authorizing the tenders already on September 26 is like continuing the freeze, with all that implies diplomatically, publicly and politically,” the letter read. “That is judgment day.”
