Review of revision 916369 [Passed][edit]

Is title POV[edit]

I don't see how the title Israel announces 10 month halt to settlement construction in West Bank makes any sense. Maybe the title should read Israel announces 10 month halt to construction permits for new residential buildings in West Bank except East Jerusalem

Binyamin Netanyahu said "We will not halt existing construction and we will continue to build synagogues, schools, kindergartens and public buildings".

The line halt to settlement construction in West Bank is not true because it is

  • except for building in East Jerusalem, which the Palestinians want as their capital,
  • except for "natural growth", construction of homes by young people
  • except for building of schools
  • except for building of places of worship
  • more than 2,500 housing units being built or recently authorized.
