State to approve wave of construction in Judea and Samaria

For the first time since Trump took office, Civil Admin. to approve thousands of new homes in Jewish communities across Judea and Samaria.

Construction in Gush Etzion

The Civil Administration’s Higher Planning Committee is scheduled to meet next week to approve a series of building projects in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. Combined, the projects include plans for more than 2,600 housing units.

If passed as expected, this would mark the first time the committee has approved housing projects in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria since President Trump took office in January.

The hearings will take place Tuesday and Wednesday, and will cover a number of projects which had been blocked out of political considerations, Channel 2 reported.

The projects include housing outside of the major settlement blocs, in towns such as Kfar Tapuah in central Samaria.

Officials in Jerusalem say the housing projects are not likely to elicit criticism from the White House, noting the open lines of communication between the Prime Minister’s Office and the Trump administration regarding Israeli policy in Judea and Samaria.

  1. Fantastic news! But reality is that few if any will actually be built. Netanyahu has pulled the construction approval stunt many, many times.

    I take it seriously. It didn’t start with Soros though now that you mention it:

    But, you are old enough to know that this is Nazi-style rhetoric. Hitler and Goebbels used phrases like that. That’s why when I googled it, all that came up was Neo-Nazi sites plus one “Christian” site spouting similar rhetoric in religious language. There’s political correctness and there’s political correctness.

    If it was just to run my mouth, I wouldn’t bother. I’m hoping that somebody who has power or influence will read my writing and be influenced.

    Incidentally, my two half-Jewish cousins I mentioned are Americans living abroad. I have no relatives — no living relatives — born and raised outside of America and Israel. What are you still doing in Europe, bro?
    I guess it’s a sort of “boy who cried wolf” syndrome. I make so many jokes you don’t know when I’m serious. Oh, well, someday that may stand me in good stead if I the day comes where I am accused of “incitement.” I hope no Muslims follow my example. When they copy us they always drench everything in murder and mayhem. I can just see the defenses of “workplace violence” or “mental incompetence” giving way to “but, your honor, I was just kidding!”


    Seen this?

  3. @ Sebastien Zorn:
    I read that post as a sort of “tongue-in-cheek” comment on the fabulous long talked about but never really seen until today, International Jew…I mean Soros and his ilk..

    You take this person far too seriously, or are you yourself, sort of, playing a game of your own, by jumping on everything said as if it were actually seriously meant, although you have doubts about it……

    Government housing policy, like government monetary policy, fiscal policy, foreign policy, and all the rest, sucks.

    Pure and simple.

  5. “Netanyahu is voluntarily freezing construction’ June 2, 2017
    Shomron Regional Council head: Likud should replace Netanyahu if he continues to voluntarily freeze construction in Judea and Samaria.”

    “…In an insulting manner to the needs of the residents, a shameful and hallucinatory number of construction units was approved, which is not even close to the natural growth of the residents themselves,” he added…

    “…Here are the exact numbers: According to the decision today, 1,357 housing units have been approved in all of Judea and Samaria, meaning that 1,357 housing units are intended to meet the needs of half a million residents whose construction plans have been delayed for eight years. Enough with the pretending. No more hiding. That’s a construction freeze!” concluded Dagan…”

    Now you’re trying to walk it back.
    Using “Jew” in place of Jewish, accusing Jews of global domination, communist control, in particular, is a standard anti-semitic trope. I googled: “jew-controlled communist government” and only anti-semitic sites came up with that exact phrase in their summaries. Of the three that came up, I didn’t go into the sites, but from the summaries, two were Neo-Nazi the third, Christian.

    “If it talks like a duck…”

    Why are you doing this on an explicitly Jewish Nationalist site?


    “Rabbi Altmann and his secretary were sitting in a coffeehouse in Berlin in 1935. “Herr Altmann,” said his secretary, “I notice you’re reading Der Stürmer! I can’t understand why. A Nazi libel sheet! Are you some kind of masochist, or, God forbid, a self-hating Jew?”

    “On the contrary, Frau Epstein. When I used to read the Jewish papers, all I learned about were pogroms, riots in Palestine, and assimilation in America. But now that I read Der Stürmer, I see so much more: that the Jews control all the banks, that we dominate in the arts, and that we’re on the verge of taking over the entire world. You know – it makes me feel a whole lot better!””

  7. @ Sebastien Zorn
    Is it *Arab* controlled?
    Is it limited, pro- free market (laissez-faire)?

    The Big Government coalition, long in control of Israel, is dominated by social’zt operators who are halalachically Jews, but aren’t particularly Jewish.

    Communism is not a Jewish thing.

    But once again we see a Big Government type (e.g. you, SPLC, etc) trying to smear a less government type as being antisemitic (or homophobic, neo-confederate, racist, or whatever).

    These few homes are merely a pinprick in the near bursting dam of pent up floods of masses of Jews wanting to live in YESHA for the past 20 years or more. Has this miniscule sop been arranged by Netanyahu with the White House to assuage the very real opposition mounting against Netanyahu continuing as Israel’s P.M……

    And will these “announcements” be shelved and quitely disappear under the dust of neglected promises as always has happened in the past….

  9. @ Abolish_public_education:
    I googled that phrase and Goebbels and the only thing that came up was this from a Neo-Nazi website:

    Search Results
    Adolf Hitler German Nationalist Or Aryan Racialist – › Topics › Documents
    “Despite the German defeat and the establishment of a Jew-controlled Communist government in Poland, the Poles nevertheless avenged themselves against …”

    My antennae first went up the first time I saw you used “Jew” rather than “Jewish”as an adjective which is something anti-semites do.

  10. :
    The Government throwing a few crumbs to the Jews.

    The Orthodox, desperate to house their large families in modern comfort, should covert en masse to Islam. Then the Jew-controlled, communist government would become more sympathetic to their plight.

  11. Wonderful News ,you can be sure the UN , UNESCO , EU and the rest of the Enemies of Israel will condemn this action, Whatvelse is new .These are the same Jew haters like George Soros who spew their Antisemitic hate day after day Day
