Quote of the Day (qotd)

Land for Peace....I said that I will help them obtain land for their buildings, and in exchange I want complete quiet. Thank God this arrangement works.

-- Mayor Moshe Abutbol (Bet Shemesh)

Regarding how he achieved quiet by the more extreme community in Bet Shemesh - by buying them off with land.
Funny thing is, he is not saying they promised they will be quiet, but he says he has already achieved the quiet. I am not sure what quiet he is referring to - just last week there were at least 3 days where the roads through RBS B were shut down and closed off due to rioting by the community he refers to in the above quote.

Maybe he means he has achieved their quiet in between the rioting periods.

  1. I can understans why he would do it, but why would he say it.
    I didn't know an individuals's obligation not to violate laws was contingent on some מוסד getting land from the Iriya-oh I forgot these people don't recognize the state nor the Iriya and they expect the non-existant Iriya to recognize that it doesn't exist by not alloting them the property directly but giving it to them through some other means.
    Anyway the mayor isn't supposed to admit that violence pays off.
