Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett said: "Erekat now says we can't build in our capital, in Jerusalem. The question is not why we're building in Jerusalem now. The question is why didn't we build until now. Habayit Hayehudi will keep fighting for building in our country, without apologizing."
Earlier Saeb Erekat, chief negotiator for the Palestinian team, said that Israel's new construction plans in the settlements are meant to undermine the peace talks, to be resumed on Wednesday. (Moran Azulay)
