Netanyahu tells Obama to stick it where the sun don't shineissued a tender for 200 new housing units in Efrat (which is part of the Gush Etzion bloc which President George W. Bush promised would be retained by Israel as part of any 'final settlement' with the 'Palestinians') and Kiryat Arba.
This is from the first link.
According to Channel 2, the tenders are for 84 new housing units in Kiryat Arba near Hebron, and for an additional 114 tenders in the West Bank settlement of Efrat.Will this help Likud in the polls?
