Quote of the Day

This program will double the size of Bet Shemesh. It is a tremendous accomplishment. I see this city becoming a large city in central Israel. It is developing at a very fast pace... There are Haredim, secular, ashkenazim, sefardim, new immigrants - we are all obligated in every part of the land that brothers will live together - שבת אחים גם יחד. I am aware of the problems, my ministers are aware of the problems, but with cooperation we can solve them. This land and this city belong to everybody and there is place for everyone. We are planning to create a wonderful future. I see Bet Shemesh reaching half a million residents -and we must invest together.

  -- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, at a ceremony signing the agreement for further construction of housing and new neighborhoods in Bet Shemesh

half a million people! that's a lot of people. major city.

  1. Nice idea, but the great majority of people moving into Bet Shemesh are Haredi, and the great majority of people moving out are non-Haredi. Right?

  2. This is only an attempt to help compensate for the next housing freeze in the territories which Bibi and Trump have been discussing. So Bet Shemesh gets high risers to handle the overflow. Clever.

  3. The current mayor's goal is to turn BS into BB2.

  4. If the government is in charge of this, and it says it is for everyone, not just charedi, then they must be kept to their word. If there will be a building freeze in the territories, then the type of people who would go there and might just come to BS instead could be dati leumi.
