The article discusses the ban on Jewish building in Judea and Samaria and how this is a violation of Jewish civil rights. This ban, which the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama wants to extend, is based on a Palestinian misinterpretation of a clause in the 1995 agreement between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) prohibiting changes to the status of the West Bank and Gaza Strip while status negotiations are ongoing. It notes that the clause covers both Israel and Palestine although only Israel has been held to account.
