We keep hearing that there are 3,000 approved projects that have ALREADY begun, and that each and every one of them must be allowed to complete. We also keep hearing that any approved projects that HAVEN'T already begun must now wait for 10 months before commencing. But what is missing is the FIGURE for that latter category. Israel must know how many permits have been issued, and so working out how many have been "frozen" is a simple matter of arithmatic i.e. it is (x - 3000). So what is the value? Dare I suggest that the reason why Israel won't release that figure is that it will be revealed to be vanishingly small i.e. everyone who already has a permit has ALREADY rushed to beat that "freeze".
