another construction freeze agreement

Reports are saying that Israel agreed, in the conference at Sharm A Sheikh, to a 4 month construction freeze in Judea and Samaria, along with a 6 month freeze from approving new communities.

Personally, I think 4 months is a speck of time and not a big deal. if that is a goodwill gesture that can get something significant in return, I see 4 months as being such a minor price to pay that it is not even worth discussing.

That being said, this is yet another point against the promises of a full right government, and another thing that Ben Gvir has explicitly spoken out about as not being acceptable. Terror is going barely countered and hardly reigned in, rockets from Gaza get no response from Israel, now another construction freeze agreement, prices keep going up, the country is in chaos (yes, it is the left protesting, but it is the right wing government not in control of pretty much anything)... how long will this last? For how long will Ben Gvir and Smotritch continue to accept what they promised they wouldn't?

    Look, it's time for Israel to copy the Arabs - sign a deal. Of course we'll freeze settlements. Of course we'll withdraw our army. Sure, sure. And then keep building and keep the soldiers in place. If they can lie, why not us?
    As for Ben Gvir and Smotrich, they are in an interesting position right now. Like Bennett once upon a time and many others before, they had a "flash in the pan" election result. If another election was help today, I doubt they'd get 10 seats and probably less. They know damned well that, on one hand, their "right wing utopia" has evaporated in the face of the protests and Bibi's determination to not go to jail, but they also know triggering elections will be the end of them.

  2. "Why do we vote right and get left?" the Israeli right always wonders. They blame the courts, the media, academia, you name it.

    Maybe they should blame the guy they vote for.
