Netanyahu arranges two-week freeze of bill aiming to circumvent High Court ruling on Ulpana.
The Knesset plenum is set to discuss a bill to legalize West Bank settlements despite an agreement to freeze it for two weeks.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the bill’s initiator Mk Zvulun Orlev (Habayit Hayehudi) agreed to freeze promotion of the bill in order to give the government time to settle the issue. Meanwhile, Netanyahu has instructed Defense Minister Ehud Barak to halt all demolition preparations.
Netanyahu is under heavy pressure from right-wing ministers to use legislation to circumvent the High Court of Justice and prevent the evacuation of Beit-El’s Ulpana neighborhood. The High Court has given the State a July 1 deadline to demolish five structures in the neighborhood.
Israel committed a huge mistake by not annexing the former areas occupied by Turkey and United Kingdom.
In 1967 all this land were liberated, and should have been include as fully legalized ares of the state of Israel.
In stead, Jerusalem chose to keep Judea and Samaria is suspension. These Jewish properties is still ruled by “temporarily military ordinances”.
That is a shame.
Its is time to give the Jewish settlers full rights as Israeli citizens, inline with the rights of Jews living in Tel Aviv and Haifa.
Jesus the Messiah has called the Jewish people home, to rebuild the ruins of Zion. This is the promised land belonging to the Jewish people, a land that was criminally neglected and trampled on by pagans of different kinds.
The Messiah has called the Jews to live on the Mountains in Zion. Amen.
