Video: Speech warms settler hearts


  Israeli settlers applaud Netanyahu speech  

Binyamin Netanyahu’s defiant stand on the necessity of settlement growth in the occupied West Bank may have cost him support within the international community.

But residents of the Ofra settlement are overjoyed that the Israeli prime minister has backed the so-called natural growth of the settlements, insisting it was impossible to stop.
