Israeli Response to Annapolis

According to Media With Conscience, "Israel has approved plans to build more than 300 new homes on Jewish settlement sites in occupied east Jerusalem, drawing quick Palestinian condemnations that the move will undermine peace talks."

According to Zeev Boim, Israel's construction and housing minister, "Secretary of State Rice should be congratulated for her efforts in relaunching the peace process," "But this cannot constantly be linked to the cessation of construction in Jerusalem."
