Sorry Josh, but you don’t remember correctly at all! Netanjahu agreed indeed to 10-months stop of constructions in the West Bank, but only regarding new non-municipal constructions and excluding East Jerusalem. It means, municipal buildings were erected and all those many constructions which begun just in the time before the so called ‘freeze’ (see the statistics of the new projects in the territories!) could have been finished during the 10 months. And of course, there was no building-stop in East Jerusalem. You call this a freeze? I call it a joke – not very good one!
