Protesting settlement freeze, Shas avoids security cabinet meeting

Shas sits out of securit

Interior Minister Eli Yishai explained the absence of his party at the security cabinet meeting that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu convened Wednesday to vote on a 10-month settlement freeze, saying that Shas "will never agree to a freeze on settlement construction, even for one day." Yishai went on to say that a freeze on settlement construction would "not strengthen anything, and will be perceived as a sign of weakness."
