Netanyahu instructs housing minister to ‘reconsider’ plans for 24,000 units beyond Green Line.
Prime minister overrules Construction Minister Ariel and steps in to freeze plans for E1, so as not to deflect world attention from Iran; Plans fuel tensions with US, PA; Yacimovich: Gov’t operating “with two heads.”
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu directed Construction and Housing Minister Uri Ariel to “reconsider” preliminary plans for some 24,000 housing units beyond the Green Line, saying the move would harm efforts to stop Iran’s nuclear program.
He said the announcement of the preliminary planning was without any statutory standing, would do nothing to promote settlement, and would only create an unnecessary conflict with the international community at a time when intensive efforts were under way to get an improved deal between the world powers and Iran.

There might be many valid reason why Israel should go slow on building 24.000 new houses for Jews in Samaria and Judea. Iran’s nuclear program is absolutely not one of them.
By using this rhetoric, Benjamin Netanyahu have eventually confirmed that Israel is presently a banana republic, ruled by Washington D.C.
Because American policy towards Persia, is setting a standard for how many Jews who can live on the mountains of Zion.
The instruction of God of the Bible is set aside:
3 Therefore prophesy and say, “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: because they ravaged and crushed you from every side so that you became the possession of the rest of the nations and the object of people’s malicious talk and slander,
4 therefore, mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Sovereign Lord: this is what the Sovereign Lord says to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys, to the desolate ruins and the deserted towns that have been plundered and ridiculed by the rest of the nations around you –
5 this is what the Sovereign Lord says: in my burning zeal I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and against Edom, for with glee and with malice in their hearts they made my land their own possession so that they might plunder its pasture-land.”
6 Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel and say to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys: “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I speak in my jealous wrath because you have suffered the scorn of the nations. 7 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I swear with uplifted hand that the nations around you will also suffer scorn.
8 ‘“But you, mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home. 9 I am concerned for you and will look on you with favour; you will be ploughed and sown, 10 and I will cause many people to live on you – yes, all of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt.
If the King of Persia and the pharaoh in the White House demand a full stop to new housing projects on the Mountains of Zion, the Israel Prime Minister will submit, and bow before these two foreign forces.
Shame on all who force Jews to disobey the instructions they have received from God of Israel.
The Jewish people are called to return to Zion, and rebuild the ancient ruins. This is the very calling of the Jewish people, and the very resin for the restoration of Israel. The Jews did ot return to Zion to live in sins and indulgences, in the bars of Tel Aviv. But to be a witness of a faithful God, who fulfills all promises and the Prophecies in the Bible.
