Vice PM: Settlement freeze was a mistake

As the 10-month settlement freeze expired at midnight, Vice Premier Silvan Shalom toured the West Bank city of Hebron on Monday and called the prime minister’s initial decision to freeze the settlements a “mistake.”

Speaking at Hebron’s Cave of the Patriarchs, Shalom responded to the Palestinian request to extend the settlement moratorium by three months, saying that even the 10 month freeze had been excessive.
