The Yesha Council of settlements organized a demonstration in which some 1,500 rightists gathered near the home of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Monday to protest the Obama administration’s demand for a total freeze on Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank.

Among the speakers at the demonstration was Rabbi Eliezer Waldman, the head of the Nir yeshiva in the settlement of Kiryat Arba. “Obama is a racist,” Waldman told the assembled crowd. “If he continues with his actions, he will bring about the disintegration of the American superpower.”

The speeches were accompanied by jeers from the protesters at every mention of U.S. special envoy George Mitchell, who is currently in the region in a bid to reach a deal on settlement construction.
