Lapid Has No Future…

Finance Minister Yair Lapid

Yair Lapid the latest Israeli political “balloon” is out to destroy Jewish life in the Biblical Land of Israel. He has decided as Finance Minister to cut allocations that go to Judea and Samaria.  The fact that we are Israeli citizens, tax paying citizens, army serving citizens who serve in the most dangerous units of the IDF doesn’t concern him.  We’re being treated as “enemies.”

Finance Minister Yair Lapidordered that all money transfers to Judea and Samaria be stopped, following a publication on Channel 2 claiming thatmoney is indirectly passing from the state’s coffers to Judea and Samaria’s Yesha Council. The hold on transfers has been ordered until the claims are investigated.

Martin Sherman predicted something like this could happen..

Three emerging threats Elaborating on my “strong premonition of dire things to come,” I predicted the emergence of three pernicious and interconnected processes, now materializing with alarming speed before our very eyes. 1. I forecast that the issue of anti-Israel sanctions would be raised with increasing intensity and frequency in the public discourse, and the threat, allegedly because of continued construction (indeed, existence) of Jewish communities across the pre-1967 lines (a.k.a., pejoratively, “settlements”), would be featured with increasing prominence in the mainstream media. 2. I then cautioned that, as a result of this, soon a wide-ranging campaign would be launched against the “settlers,” singling them out as the fundamental cause of the sanctions and casting blame on them for inflicting international isolation and economic pain on the rest of the country. 3. I warned that, as it becomes ever-more apparent that the impasse between Israel and Palestinian Arabs cannot be resolved consensually, Israel’s leaders will begin to capitulate under the perceived pressure of sanctions and embrace the idea of unilateral withdrawal from Judea-Samaria. Since coercive eviction of large numbers of Jews resident in the evacuated areas would be operationally infeasible and politically untenable, I foresaw the adoption of a policy of “benign” abandonment. This would mean that Jewish residents/communities would be left to the tender mercies of some prospective Palestinian regime.

Taking into account that previous political parties that ballooned from zero to sizable quickly burst and left the scene, I have no doubt that Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid, “there’s a future” has no future in the State of Israel. But we have major work to do to stop Lapid and Netanyahu.
