Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Bibi Netanyahu:

"You cannot freeze life"

Yes, I'm glad that he said that.

Bibi isn't a socialist. His academic training is Economics. He believes in supply and demand. Considering the terrible housing shortage in many of the yishuvim (Jewish villages and communities) like Shiloh, "natural growth" should mean being able to build houses to satisfy the demands of the Israeli citizens.


"Natural growth" should mean that young couples who want to live on yishuvim for whatever reason, whether social, family, ideological or economic should be able to build and rent homes.

"Natural growth" should mean that overcrowded schools must have new classrooms built and that well-used roads must be repaired.

Closing down construction is dictatorial and anti-democratic. Destroying* communities and banning Jews from living in specific areas for the sole reason of religion is totally immoral.


Israeli voters voted for a Right wing, pro-Jews in the Land of Israel Knesset, but Bibi put together a Left-Center coalition. That's not what the people want.


*I use the term "destroy" not "evict." You "evict" someone who shouldn't be in a place, but Jews should be allowed in The Land of Israel. We are the rightful owners.
