Rabbi Ovadia Yosef says construction freeze must end

Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said Tuesday that the moratorium on construction in the West Bank should not continue and building must be carried out all over the country. Yosef's comments came at a meeting of Shas members.
Shas MK and Interior Minister Eli Yishai added that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to freeze building was unprecedented and Israel received nothing in exchange for the moratorium; therefore, building must resume immediately upon the scheduled end of the freeze on September 26.
