Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein issued a response on Sunday to the American demand to cease building in a new housing project in the Sheikh Jarah neighborhood in east Jerusalem.
According to Edelstein, "A demand to cease construction in a neighborhood situated only several meters from the Hebrew University proves how dangerous it is to be dragged into a debate on settlement freeze, which will lead us to a total demand to freeze our normal lives throughout the entire State of Israel."
