Following the petition by 42 Ministers and Members of Knesset calling for settlement construction in response to the housing crisis, Geneva Intiaitive-Israel's Spokeswoman Gilly Harpaz issued the following comment:
 
 
 
 
 
The Geneva Initiative calls upon "moderate" ministers and Members of Knesset who signed the petition to solve the housing crisis by building in Judea and Samaria--among them MK Yoel Hasson, who stands at the head of the two state solution lobby, and Minister Yossi Peled who said last week in a conference organized by the Geneva Initiative in the Knesset that "the two state solution is an existential interest for the State of Israel"-- to stop lying to the public and decide whether they support a two state solution or investing funds in the future Palestinian state.
