If Olmerde was not so obvious and blatant in his treason against the state of Israel, one would believe him to be an agent of Islamic jihad. Rushing to ruin ............. the Israelis seem impotent and the Jewish diaspora have abandoned their brothers.
PM Olmert: 'Yesha Construction Stops Here'
Olmert says he must approve all building in Judea/Samaria,
MK Aryeh Eldad responds to the ban by calling for civil disobedience."
IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has sent a letter to his Defense, Housing and Agriculture Ministers, stating clearly, "Your approval is not sufficient; from now on, all construction in Judea and Samaria - including additions to existing structures - must be OK'ed by me."
Defense Minister Ehud Barak must approve all construction as well.
MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) responded sharply: "Even in the days of the White Paper [during the 1930's, when the British rulers tried to choke Jewish growth in the Holy Land - ed.], the British High Commissioner did not need to give his approval any time someone wanted to close in a porch. The time has come for civil disobedience against Olmert, who wants to choke the settlement enterprise."
Olmert: No Building At All Until March
Olmert also says he must review every new building plan or housing tender issued in Judea and Samaria. It is widely assumed that this is just another step by Olmert towards making sure that U.S. President George Bush, who is set to visit Israel next week, has nothing to chastise Israel about on the settlement front. Olmert told Housing Minister Ze'ev Boim last week that all construction in Yesha is officially frozen for at least the next two months.
