FM slams int'l community disapproving E1 plans
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman commented on the international community's criticism of Israel's plans to build housing units in area E1, and said: "Anyone claiming the settlements are an obstacle to peace is gravely mistaken."


Speaking at a conference in Herzliya he added, "It is fascinating how new neighborhoods in Jerusalem are named 'settlements'. We have witnessed the outcome of settlements evacuation, and the international community should understand that." (Shiri Hadar)
