Ministers rally behind Netanyahu on East Jerusalem building – Haaretz – Israel News

Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom on Thursday also said that construction in Jerusalem is “unconditional,” adding that Israel is dealing only with the regulations and procedure.

“How did we get to the point that building in Jerusalem has turned into a stumbling block? If we blink now, we will lose everything, and when that happens the government will collapse,” he told Israel Radio.

Shalom added that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “has a mandate from the Jewish people and we don’t have the option of making another decision.”

Shalom also said, “We are facing a historic decision. The United States knows that when the time comes, Israel will be the only one to stand by it.”
