Australia recognizes West Jerusalem as Israel's capital

The Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morison, announced that Australia recognizes West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

At least that. Maybe it is a good first step.

So, will Australia move its embassy to West Jerusalem?

Not so fast, buddy. Morrison says that they will not be moving the embassy to West Jerusalem at this time but will begin the search for a suitable site. They are planning to move the embassy when it will be practical, after a final status agreement with the Palestinians.

So basically never.

I am not sure why though. If they already recognize West Jerusalem as the capital, why does moving the embassy - to West Jerusalem - require waiting for a final status agreement? Get started now on moving it - find the site, start building or refurbishing the building, etc.

Nu nu.

Whoever raises prices to the consumer, unjustly, will regret it quickly.

Quote of the Day

why do children die at such a young age in terrorist attacks? The answer is, because there are murders that murder them. These murderers are evil people who do not need to be here and definitely not to be able to walk around freely. We are also somewhat guilty.Unfortunately we release murderers, so why shouldn't they murder again? ... what does a terrorist tell himself? If I die, I will go to heaven. If I don't die, I will get a large salary from the Israeli money. And then the Israelis will release me in a deal or as a gesture - so why shouldn't he go murder? 
Don't come with questions to God. Come with your questions to the people who free the murderers. To the ones who allow them to incite. To the ones who leave them here in the land and do not evict them to the countries of their friends where they love bloodshed (like Syria)...

  -- Chief Rabbi of Tzfat, Rav Shmuel Eliyahu, about the death of the prematurely born baby last night after his mother had been shot by a terrorist

Rabbi Reisman on the threat to our community (video)


I am not quite sure what to think of this, and I have no understanding of what the demand for 7 hours of secular studies is - 7 hours a day? a week? a month? 7 per day would be ridiculous - my kids dont even go to school for 7 hours a day! 7 a week, and definitely a month, doesn't sound like a problem.

Quote of the Day

It is not public Shabbos desecration.. I have no problem with it. From my point of view, the entire city should be filled with WeWork complexes..

Major bus stop for 419 route from Jerusalem to RBS canceled

Egged announced the other day that they are canceling the bus stop on the corner of Yirmiyahu St and Aholiav St in Jerusalem for the 418 and 419 bus routes leaving Jerusalem towards Ramat Bet Shemesh. Local city buses will continue to use that bus stop. This Friday, December 14, it will go into effect (though I do not know if that means Friday will be the last day or if the stop will already not be functioning on Friday - I suspect it is the latter).

This is significant because for these routes this was the only bus stop in the area of the Central Bus Station. Canceling this stop will mean people requiring this bus will have to go much further to find it - if they take a bus or train from another part of the city, they cant just go to the Bus State and walk down to the nearest stop - now they have a long walk or will have to take another bus to a different stop along the line. This is very inconvenient and will be the cause of a lot of anguish and frustration for travelers. This is also a very busy bus stop, so many people will be affected.

By the way, for people not sure what stop this is - it is across form Center 1 in jerusalem, just outside the Beit Yahav building, and across from the Ichud Hatzala building.

No reason was given in the announcement, but after many complaints, Egged has responded saying it is because of issues with road work and traffic flow in the area.

According to Kikar, Bet Shemesh City Councilman Shmulik Greenberg (also formerly responsible for the transportation portfolio - to his credit, even though he is no longer responsible for it) is putting forth efforts to resolve this problem in communication with Egged and the Ministry of Transportation, and Mayor Aliza Bloch is also in touch with the Transportation Ministry and Egged to get this resolved.
