Komemiyut Campaigns Against PM's Threats


The Komemiyut Movement launched a campaign, Sunday evening, in which it attacks Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for what Komemiyut views as implied and not-so-implied threats against the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria. The implied threats included campaign stops in central Samaria (Shomron) and the community of Rechelim, where Netanyahu said,  "if support is reduced, the future of the government will be in danger so the future of the settlement enterprise will be in danger. The basis of the settlement enterprise is your support for the united list of Likud Yisrael Beiteinu. With your support we can continue activity for the settlement enterprise. I'm counting on you to bring a rain of Machal [Likud-Beyteinu] ballots to the polls."

Komemiyut Chairman Musa Cohen said the prime minister would not say things in the same vein to residents of Tel Aviv. The campaign, which appears on the internet and elsewhere, contains a voice that  addresses Netanyahu and prominent Likud members Danny Danon, Gid'on Sa'ar and Tzipi Hotovely not to threaten the settlement movement or to speculate financially when it comes to Israel.
