Excellent News from Peace Now

Thanks to Peace Now, we now know that there will be 1000 more homes available for Jewish families in Judea and Samaria. It's a start.
During a building freeze, many Arab construction workers are out of work.  With the freeze lifted, there will be work for many Arabs who carry Israeli work permits and/or Israeli ID cards.

Peace Now reports that Israel is in the midst of approving 1096 new housing units in 11 towns across Judea and Samaria.

The plan also includes the legalization of at least one existing village (aka “outpost”) called Nachlei Tal where dozens of Israelis already live, which will expand the village to over 250 families.

1. Shilo (Nofei Shilo) – Plan 205/4 – 17 housing units 2. Nahlei Tal – Plan 235/10 – 255 housing units 3. Kochav Yaakov – Plan 242/1/3 – 38 housing units 4. Gilgal – Plan 317/2 – 234 housing units 5. Almog – Plan 604/4 – 31 housing units 6. Talmon – Plan 235/2/4 – 314 housing units 7. Alon Shvut – Plan 405/6/6/1 – 60 housing units 8. Etz Efraim – Plan 126/2/3 9. Shilo – Plan 205/15 10. Shilo – Plan 205/16 11. Kfar Adumim – Plan 227/21 12. Shilo – Plan 205/13 – 95 housing units 13. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/1/1/3/8 – 48 housing units 14. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/1/3/11 – 4 housing units 15. Mitzpe Shalem – Plan 607/6 16. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/7/2/a 17. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/1/3/14 18. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/7/10/b 19. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/1/1/3/9 20. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/1/1/3/10 21. Beitar Ilit – Plan 426/1/3/12

Strangely though, Peace Now seems upset by this good news.

The real question is, with the housing crisis in Israel what it is, why isn’t the government giving permission to build 100,000 new homes for Jewish families in Judea and Samaria, instead of a mere 1000?

  1. Amen! Here in Shilo we are waiting for those new houses. There is a big demand of places, from both our children and newcomers. Shilo appears here in four different plans (1, 9, 10 and 12). If so, beEzrat HaShem, we'll have planty of room for you all! Be welcome!

    This is good news especially since some of these communities are outside the so-called "consensus." The "consensus" means the communities that will stay under Israeli sovereignty no matter what the politicians decide. Keep pushing that "consensus" further and further! Once upon a time, all communities beyond the Green Line were "on the table" for mass evacuation. Eventually East Jerusalem was off the table by every major political party (Meeretz and Ra'am Ta'al don't count). Even Labor has had to swallow it. Then the consensus got pushed to Ariel, Gush Etzion, Ma'ale Adumim, Givat Ze'ev and Modin Illit. Once again, no party seriously considers them to be "on the table." Now the consensus (probably) includes the Kiryat Arba bloc (despite all odds), Karne Shomron/Kedumin bloc, Beit El, Kochav Yakov, and all of the E-1 area. Not to mention that most Israelis expect a permanent presence in the Jordan Valley for security purposes. Yes, some of the leftists parties dither about this current consensus. They very vaguely talk about "hard choices" or about impractical "land swaps" but this is pure lip service because they KNOW they can't really do anything about those communities anymore.

    Soon the "consensus" will designate communities like Shiloh, Itamar, Elon Moreh, Nodkim, Mevo Dotan, Halamish, Talmon, Eli, Ofra, Har Bracha and Tekoa (along with the accompanying outposts for these towns) to be off the table and permanent. It is imperative that the Israeli government focuses on building these communities in the near term to make this a fait accompli.

    I know it's easy to get discouraged when places like Ulpana, Migron or Gush Katif get evacuated but Israeli pioneers are slowly but surely advancing despite incredible setbacks.

    That is indeed great news!

    Que bien Rab…. Esperemos que sea pronto…

  5. No reason in the world not to build 100,000 units in Judea and Samaria – it's 100% legal:

  6. There is only one peace, peace through strength. It was a huge mistake to allow the muslims, any of them, to remain in Israel after the war we fought with them. That they are there now, in our midst, is proof positive that we must keep fighting them until they are gone from our land, every settlement becomes an outpost holding the land against the flood of their hordes who would otherwise overwhelm us.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Great! And after we make those new "settlements," let's invade Lebanon again and take back the Sinai and Gaza. Today Israel, tomorrow the world. Yippee!

  8. Douglas Mills says:

    Israel has got to be the only country in history that is demonized for building houses!

  9. The 100,000 sounds like a really good start.

  10. Benjamin Fox says:

    A million would be too little as far as this Jew is concerned.

  11. Odette Jones says:

    BUILD BUILD BUILD

  12. Benjamin Fox says:

    And build some more as it is your land Israel. God Bless Sister:
