[UPDATE: ] McClatchey’s story is called, “Amid denials of freeze, red tape slows Jerusalem settlements —

“We are running into problems in places where we didn’t used to. There is suddenly red tape and holdups. The municipality is making it very hard for us and asking us to be quiet about it,” said Aryeh King , the founder of the Israel Land Fund and a well-known activist on behalf of Jewish projects in East Jerusalem .

“We are working behind their backs and, God willing, we will continue to build regardless of what Netanyahu or the Americans say.”
