“Building is not a price tag for murder,” says vice premier, advocating return to policies for developing Judea and Samaria.
Vice Premier Moshe Ya’alon told The Jerusalem Post that rather than put on a show by approving construction once, the time had come to resume fulfilling the Likud’s campaign pledge to build up Judea and Samaria.
“Building is not the price tag for murder,” Ya’alon said. “For two years, Israel restrained itself more than we thought we would and more than previous governments did. We had said we would allow natural development to enable people in Judea and Samaria to live a normal life. It’s time to return to the policies we promised.”
Ya’alon said policies restraining construction in Judea and Samaria were now in place only due to American sensitivity after the policies had failed to return the Palestinians to the negotiating table.
“What happened on Shabbat proves the Palestinians don’t do anything except incite,” he said.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was caught on Sunday between two former IDF chiefs of General Staff offering him opposite advice on how to react to the terrorist attack in Itamar.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that despite the attack, Israel needed to continue to do everything possible to bring the Palestinians back to the negotiating table. He approved tenders for building 400 housing units in the West Bank, but stressed that they were a one-time gesture following the attack.
“It is important to continue the peace process, because the world will no longer let us rule over another people,” Barak said.
He said there was no longer any reason to reward the Palestinians for taking no steps in the right direction.
The Likud’s nationalist task force sent a letter to Likud ministers urging them to call upon Netanyahu to fire Barak for not preventing the attack in Itamar.

It is incredible that Israel has to excuse it self form building on Jewish land.
If Samaria is not Jewish, neither is Tel Aviv or Haifa.
The Israeli politicians must open their Bible, and explain to the World that the same God that Christians claims have saved them, have the Jews the task of being caretakers of Zion.
Islam is a false religion, that will eventually try to destroy both Judaism and Christianity.
You better end up on the right side of the fence. If you end up with the enemies of the Jewish people, you made God of the Bible your enemies. His wrath will come up on you, for cursing the people he chose to be His inheritance.
When Jesus returns you shall see many of his claimed followers being cast into the fire of Hell. But many Jews who were waiting for a Messiah they did not fully know, will cry out for mercy and being saved by Him.
[ Mourning for the One They Pierced ] “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
(end of scripture).
Stand up for Israel. Stand with the Jewish people in all their trouble.
