      I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970.  I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh.  I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and currently, am Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center.

      Out of Home, Out of House

      I caught this a bit late:

      Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett (Habayit Hayehudi) criticized the prime minister's willingness to release terrorists, despite Netanyahu's pledge to keep building in the settlements, the support center of Bennett's party.

      "The attempt to combine construction with freeing murderers is cynical and morally wrong. It would be better for the prime minister not to free murderers and not to build," he said.

      That's odd.

      Why not say, 'don't release and keep building'?

      After all, Peace Now claims we're building big anyway.

      Bennet all but lost Jerusalem - electorally, that is, Nadav Shragai writes.

      And it could get worse, as Binyamin Netanyahu illustrates.

      Let's help him not to lose Judea and Samaria?
