MK Schneller: Silly to Blame Yesha for High Prices


MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima) said that attempting to blame the high cost of living on Israel's investments in Judea and Samaria was “silly. These attempts by leaders of past and current social struggles, as well as politicians in development towns, to blame the high cost of living on residents of Judea and Samaria, is not just incorrect, it also damages the credibility of those leading the protests, as it turns the protests into a political movement.

“A real campaign that unites the people should be the message of these protests, and it must be kept as such,” said Schneller, who is himself a resident of Ma'ale Michmash in Binyamin.
