TRUMP VICTORY PROVOKES DEMANDS FOR ISRAEL TO BUILD, BUILD, BUILD

The Knesset Land of Israel Caucus called on the Israeli government to build across the country Wednesday, following Donald Trump's election as President of the United States.

Caucus co-chairman MK Yoav Kish (Likud) opened the caucus meeting with a reference to this year's Republican Party platform, which called for the US embassy to be moved to Jerusalem. "We believe that the policy of freezing (construction) and preventing the expansion of settlements has ended. We will stop talking about 'two states' and start talking about building, settlements, and sovereignty. We have a stable national government, but international pressure has prevented us from implementing the policy we wanted. Today that has begun to change in a significant way."
