Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Sunday responded to the government's approval of hundreds of new housing units in the settlements following the terrorist attack in Itamar Saturday, saying: "I would not stop with 400 units, we need at least 1,000 new housing units for each person murdered."

"After this terrible and shocking murder, nothing will comfort the families," Yishai said. "The [Palestinian] Authority is raising a generation of murderers."
