In the face of this unavoidable fact, Kashriel, who is also a Likud Party member, plans to lay a cornerstone on the hilltop as a symbolic gesture to initiate the fight for E-1 construction that, in his words, "speaks from the heart of the people." It's the first time he's organized a public protest against Bibi's policies.
As of now, work on 450 apartments is under way in Ma'aleh Adumim. Once they are completed the E-1 is he only place left in the town where construction could be done.
Knesset Speaker Reuvi Rivlin, and Interior Minister Eli Yishai both support E-1 construction. Kashriel sees the protest as being a public statement to strengthen Bibi so that he can stand up to international pressure for the building freeze.
All of this pressure could be diffused if Bibi did one simple thing: explain to world leaders that Fatah's convention has made it clear that there is not partner for peace, that Fatah has chosen Jewish genocide and therefore Israel will not accept a Palestinian state, and that all lands west of the Jordan are under the jurisdiction of the Jewish state. Any unilateral, or international attempts to do impose such a state will be met with an Israeli military response.
The majority has already spoken. Fatah has already spoken. And yet this pointless charade continues. The Envoy Convoy met again, and everything's just peachy.
