Netanyahu Praises ‘Cancellation of Distances’

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised recent developments in the Negev and Galilee during Sunday’s cabinet meeting. Netanyahu greeted Negev and Galilee Development Minister Silvan Shalom, saying Shalom has done “major and important work.”

He continued, “I think that it heralds the unity that we have spoken of, the union of the Negev and the Galilee, the union of the periphery and the center, the cancellation of distances, the creation of centers of life and activity the likes of which we have not seen for many years.”
