Yes, Build We Will, and Build We Must!

Home prices in Israel are high, and prices in most of the yishuvim, communities in Judea and Samaria have gone up, too. There's a simple principle called "supply and demand." If you don't have enough to sell the ones you have, whether apples, eggs or homes, the prices will go up.

There's a housing shortage in Israel, very few housing starts, not enough to meet the need/demand. So contractors and owners can charge more, and fewer people can afford to buy.

One place there's plenty of space and quality life is Shiloh, where I live. There's a slight complication, politics egged on by international pressure/interference. I firmly believe that if the Israeli Government would just tell off the critics and ignore them, whether foreign or local, they will quiet down an awful lot. They will stop threatening us once we make it clear that their threats have influence on us.

Let's just build!
