National Union Recess Tour

National Union faction members on a tour of Rawabi

National Union faction members on a tour of Rawabi

The National Union went on the road this week, despite the Knesset’s recess. The first stop was Naot Kedumim, near Modiin, where the faction took a specialized agriculture tour in the popular Biblical Landscape Reserve. After the tour, MKs Ariel, Eldad and Ben-Ari, faction manager Uri Bank, and other National Union faction officials sat down with the manager of the site, who informed them of the many difficulties Naot Kedumim faces in the areas of development, promotion, marketing, infrastructure, and transportation.  The National Union agreed that the educational aspect of the reserve is important and said they will encourage more visitors, particularly youth, to the site.

The next stop was Ateret, where the National Union heard from local representatives about the current and planned projects for the Shomron settlement. The faction viewed the new access road to Rawabi, the new exclusive Arab city being built on the mountain next to Ateret. The MKs were shocked to see the access road being built in Area C, an area under Israeli civilian and military control, despite government assurances that the road would not interfere with Ateret’s current projects and transportation access.

MK Ariel reacted to the new road:  “The rapid development of Rawabi is very alarming.  There is an urgent need to find solutions to refrain from harming Jewish access roads both from a security standpoint and in terms of infrastructure, and I will work most urgently together with my faction.”  MK Eldad, also upset by the road, said, “the claims that objections to the road were published legally are false, unless they were published in Zimbabwe. Together with the Members of Knesset, I will take parliamentary action in order to stop these illegal activities in Rawabi.”

For Lapid to successfully challenge Netanyahu, he will need to find the right time for a strategic exit from the government.

The right of center parties continue to maintain their lead, albeit by a slightly smaller margin in eight polls released December 9-15.

Knesset Jeremy Weekly Average #8 (week of Nov 25-Dec 1) of 7 polls (Channel 10, Globes, Knesset Channel, Channel 2, Yisrael Hayom, Yediot Ahronont, Channel 1). Current Knesset seats in [brackets], Week 7 average in (brackets) 37.5 (38.0) [42] Likud Beytenu 19.2 (21.4) [08] Labor 11.7 (11.8) [10] Shas 9.8 (9.5) [05] Jewish Home-Tekuma 8.0 […]

The average of 2 polls published last week, Channel 2 and Jerusalem Post. The Post poll was conducted November 12-13 and the Channel 2 poll was published November 14.

This week’s average shows Likud Beitenu and Labor position similar to last week. Shas gains and takes the third position while Lapid’s Yesh Atid drops and falls into the fourth position. Hadash passes Meretz, while Kadima and Independence pick up gains. Am Shalem is also picking up steam. The right block gains ground this week with the help of Shas and Am Shalem’s gains.
