Bennett responds to Kerry: Construction in Jerusalem is Zionism

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett slammed comments made earlier by US Secretary of State John Kerry, according to which the announcement of settlement construction in East Jerusalem led to a collapse in talks. Kerry told the senate that: "700 (settlement) units were approved in Jerusalem and then poof..." talks began to falter.


In response, Bennett said: "For years there was an attempt to block construction in Jerusalem by blasts and explosions, but it didn't happen. Construction in Jerusalem is not a 'poof', it is Zionism and we will never apologize for it."
