Quote of the Day (qotd)

Continuous construction is the need of today to strengthen the security and the settlement bloc in the northern Jordan Valley communities. Continued construction reflects the political - security concept of Kadima, and is an implementation of the Olmert government's decision.

----MK Otniel Shneller (Kadima)

According to Shneller, he and all of Kadima support the continued expansion of settlements.

If that is really Kadima's position, they really need a better PR company to represent them.


  1. Ehud Olmert allowed building in Jerusalem only after the religious parties placed intense pressure on him to commence with it. For Benjamin Netanyahu, agreement to a complete settlement freeze would spell the end of his government. There are limits to what he can promise Obama and still remain in office. The right of Jews to settle anywhere in the Land Of Israel is a "red line" for many in his own party and among his coalition partners. Kadima, too, will not hesitate to use the issue against him if he caves on it before the Americans.

  2. Shneller is the token settler in Kadima, and his position does not reflect his party at all -- he's probably the most right wing in the entire party.
