Housing Minister Uri Ariel said at the inauguration of the new residential complex Leshem, in the West Bank, "There is no way, during any negotiations, that we will not build in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, the Jordan Valley and all the land of Israel. Today, we are inaugurating a new community."
Ariel addressed the tension in the north and said, "As we have suffered in the past, as Jews, we cannot remain silent genocide, no matter who it is and where. There will not be genocide – we will not allow it." (Itamar Fleishman)
