    The settlers' policy is to "punish" the government every time an official action not to their liking is taken. (This policy is called "price tag", where the government must pay the price for displeasing the settlers, sometimes by having to put out fires and worry about the ARAB fields being set on fire by unhappy settlers). We are not dealing with individuals' lawlessness, but with an organized one. In the present case, the Yesha council announces an end to the State-ordered "building freeze", and it happens. Members of this council, and the council itself, can be fined. But an even stronger message can be delivered to the lawless. The government should extend the construction freeze by ONE month. This has nothing to do with ideology, but only with law and order. A good warning to the settlers to cease and desist, or they will pay dearly. Note that one form or another of extending the freeze is necessary, and such a step will bring an immediate diplomatic benefit.
