Session on High Housing Prices Cancelled
A discussion on high housing prices in Israel at the Knesset Finance Committee that had been set for Sunday has been cancelled. The session was cancelled because Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and top government ministers will be discussing high dairy prices.
In response, Kadima said in a statement that the cancellation “proves that Netanyahu has raised the white flag of surrender and fear because of the public protests on the high cost of housing.”
