Have you read anything about this issue? This housing project would have happened much earlier if it weren't for the settlement freeze and as stated by the PMO it is nothing new. Do you really think they decided to approve housing projects just to provoke because that's sad? Also, there can't be Jews in Palestine as it is punishable by death for a Palestinian to sell land to a Jew. Please think before you comment.
