The government continues its ten-month construction moratorium despite Abbas’ refusal of peace talks, which the freeze was meant to stimulate.

The freeze is an empty gesture because the construction was practically halted about two years ago. Nevertheless, settlers protest the freeze, and the government foots the bill for the protests.

Defense Minister Barak promised to crack down on settlers who refuse to let freeze inspectors into the settlements. The settlers keep the inspectors out even though nothing is being constructed.

Only twenty-four rabbis from military yeshivas signed a letter in support of Rabbi Melamed from Har Bracha yeshiva. Rabbi Melamed publicly praised the soldiers who refused orders to evict Jews.

The Defense Ministry retaliated by shutting down his yeshiva.

Rabbi Melamed will soon sign a letter condemning insubordination in the army, even though Jewish religious law is clear: we do not follow the orders that violate the commandments.
