We already know that Ehud Barak wants the freeze to be permanent, and if he had his way all the communities in Judea and Samaria would be destroyed with the land cleansed of Jews. But this fat headed pig man forgets that if that happens hundreds of thousands of religious Jews, the fasted growing population demographic in the Middle East, would be relocating into his neck of the woods. Does he really think he can keep them living in tents and they will suddenly stop having babies? I think they'll have more. Ehud, Bibi, it's only a matter of time before Jews who love Hashem, and the Torah He gave us, will outnumber you and you will be retired permanently to your Swedish villas where you can join the Muslims in their European progrom against Jews.
The Likud party is nervous so they had a vote at the end of June in which the Likud Central Committee unanimously voted that it would support renewed construction in all of Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria after the freeze expires in December. Likud Minister Benny Begin said there would be no new freeze order. Benny, you have grown soft as your father did when he gave up land for nothing. No one in Israel should take a word out of your two-faced mouth as truth. Disagree, then let's see what the so-called "right wing" government did in response...
The Ministerial Committee on Legislation withheld its support of a bill that would make it hard for the government to continue the freeze. Carmel Shama of Likud and Uri Ariel of Ichud Leumi proposed the bill which would make extending the freeze be dependent on full Knesset approval. The MCL's lack of support is the kiss of death for the bill, which happened under pressure from Bibi out of fear that he would be embarrassed at his meeting the "president" of the United States. The initial freeze order was put into effect with only approval of the security cabinet...seven people. If an extension, which I said last year Bibi would make happen, had to be approved by the entire Knesset it would never happen as Likud has already made clear it will not support such an extension.
The Yesha Council, which is about as useful as a teabag in a thunderstorm, launched a campaign to remind Bibi of his promise to end the freeze. Personally, I think that campaign was designed to hide the Yesha Council's complicity in the freeze extension, if it happens, and the resulting expulsion of the Jews from our historic homeland.
So Bibi met with The Barry last week and there were was obvious side-stepping of the freeze issue. Why? Because Bibi has already agreed to extend the freeze and they don't want Jewish nationalists rocking the boat and making waves. If the nationalist camp, including Likud loyalists like Danny Danon are smart, they will stop sitting on their hands and voting on meaningless resolutions, and assume that Bibi will extend the freeze. I almost want him to do it just to see if the Israeli public will finally stand up and stop this madness of making concessions to the Arabs, and their benefactor in the White House when everyone knows the ultimate goal is Israel's destruction.
But what might be a potentially good sign (read with caution), the de facto building freeze that has been in effect in Jerusalem thawed this week when approval was given for the building of 32 units in Pisgat Ze'ev. The PA claims this area, like they claim all of Israel, but I guess they can go cram it. The announcement was delayed until after Bibi's meeting with the Barry who would be king so he wouldn't pitch a hissy like Joe Biden did after the Ramat Shlomo announcement a few months ago.
And the beat goes on.
So, will there be a freeze extension? If the Barry wants it, and Bibi is still in power he will try. With any luck Israelis will bring the Knesset to its knees if he does.
