What suddenly happened to President Donald Trump and "Settlements"?

The Israel Civil Administration, also known as COGAT,  got to the new President.

COGAT does not think that Jewish communities are important to Judea, Samaria and Gaza.

COGAT lets all heads of state  know that.

COGAT lets all pro Israel lobby organizations know that.

COGAT, working in coordination with the left wing think tank INSS and with the Peres Center for Peace, acts as the functional representative of the Israel security and Defense establishment, effectively ruling the Jews and Arabs in Judea, Samaria  and Gaza, by military edict. 

Most importantly, COGAT has developed its own foreign ministry, communicating to all foreign consuls based in Jerusalem and Ramallah, acting on policies that have never been approved by the government or Knesset or the courts in Israel.

Communications of COGAT reach the heads of state around the world much quicker than Israel's own foreign ministry.

COGAT expresses enthusiastic support for the PLO state in formation in Judea and Samaria.

COGAT express continuous endorsement for the stability of the Hamas regime that has ruled Gaza since 2007.

All this, despite the fact that both the PLO and Hamas remain in an active state of war with Israel. 

Even worse. COGAT uses its power to strengthen UNRWA, whose budget has tripled in 10 years to 1.2 billion dollars, while UNRWA continues to promote the "right of return by force of arms" to Arab villages which existed before 1948.

COGAT has lobbied both the US and Canada to continue to streamline support for UNRWA, with no conditions whatsover. 

COGAT enthusiastically supports PBC and the PA education system with no constraints, even though both entities have proven themselves to be shofars of virulent anti-semitism.

COGAT encourages all foreign nations to donate to UNRWA without constraints.

COGAT also oversees the economic development of both the Hamas and PLO entities, aiding Israeli businesses to profit from the Arab sector under the guise of "economic peace".

COGAT  turns a blind eye to the fact that Hamas uses economic aid received to prepare children & adults throughout Gaza for the next round of war.

COGAT turns a blind eye to the fact that the PA education openly indoctrinates all Palestinian Arab children to engage in a war to liberate Palestine, all of Palestine, by force of arms.

Perhaps the unkindest cut of all is the untold amount of COGAT officials who have developed their own businesses with Hamas and the PLO, immediately when they leave public service and, too often, while they are still in uniform.
