CHANNEL 10 - NO ACCESS ISRAEL Jerusalem, 25 November 2009 1. Wide of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu entering news conference 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister: "Today my cabinet authorised a policy of restraint regarding settlements which will include a suspension of new permits and new construction in Judaea and Samaria for a period of ten months. This is a far reaching and painful step. We authorised it because of our deep desire to move forward towards peace. We hope that this decision will help launch meaningful negotiations to reach an historic peace agreement that will finally end the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians."

SOUNDBITE: (English) Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister: "The suspension will not affect the construction already underway. It will not include the schools, the kindergartens, the synagogues and the public buildings necessary for the continuation of normal life over the period of the suspension. And obviously any infrastructure that may be needed to protect our national security or to our citizens will also be provided during this time. Regarding Jerusalem our sovereign capital our position is well known: we do not put any restrictions on building in our sovereign capital." AP Television News Efrat, West Bank, 25 November 2009 5. Wide of Efrat settlement (++NIGHT SHOT++) 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Steven Shtein, resident of Efrat: "It was shown in the past that all types of freezing, expulsions that we had a couple years ago, none of these have done anything to propel the peace process further and I think it's just a way for our government to appease (US President Barack Obama) Obama who is now insisting on tying everything together and I really no reason at all do any kind of freeze of settlements." 7. Hannah Shtein looking at books 8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Hannah Shtein, resident of Efrat, "A settlement freeze isn't going to make a difference to what the Palestinians think about us and I don't really care about world opinion, they don't like us anyway. We have to do what is good for us and what is good for us is to continuing building and to strengthen the Jewish people and the Jewish population."

For peace talks to start they have to stop settlement activity immediately all over the West Bank including east Jerusalem which cannot be different from the rest of the occupied territories because east Jerusalem is also an occupied territory." 12.
