Tit for Tat in government budgets

Tit for Tat. That's how government and politics work.

MK Nissim Slomianski (Habayit Hayehudi), head of the Knesset Finance Committee, has decided to hold on to 211,000,000 NIS that was designated for the Prime Ministers Office for certain projects that encourage aliyah, such as Birthright and Masa.

Why?

Slomianski is holding on to it until the government agrees to reinstate the 48,000,000 NIS budget that was designated for yeshivot to fund the study of foreign students.

Being that we are at the end of the year, if they don't resolve this quickly and transfer the money, at the end of the year it will go back into the government coffers and will not go to its designated projects...
(source: Kikar and Ladaat)

Tit for Tat.

What's strange is that just over a month ago Yesh Atid agreed to revive that budget for foreign students, though it would be made dependent on the yeshivot teaching courses in Zionism .. Either the budget cut was not actually canceled, or Slomianski is saying he wants ti revived immediately and left unconnected to the implementation of a Zionist curriculum.

I just don't understand if it was or was not canceled, or if that was all just a distraction.
