45 MKs petition to authorize Itamar building plans

Forty-five Knesset members signed a letter released on Sunday, requesting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak to authorize the urban building scheme in the settlement of Itamar, where five members of the Fogel family were stabbed to death earlier this month.
According to the letter, written by the Land of Israel Lobby, the building scheme has remained unauthorized for 27 years, since the town was founded in a government initiative, and 22 victims of terror have come from Itamar.
MKs from the Likud, Kadima, Israel Beiteinu, National Union, United Torah Judaism, Habayit Heyehudi and Shas signed the letter, including Deputy Ministers Danny Ayalon, Gila Gamliel, Menahem Eliezer Moses, Leah Ness and Ayoub Kara.
