Huge Pro-Settlement Rally in Jerusalem Wednesday

Our people in Jewish Home and Likud kept campaigning that they had to be in the coalition to influence government. They're in now, and what influence do they have?

Here’s the poster for the gigantic rally in front of Binynei Ha’uma (Jerusalem Convention Center).  I haven’t been hearing much about it, and finally saw a poster yesterday when I was waiting for a ride to Ofra to babysit.  I went over every name and decided not to go.

f648fcec After seeing how Moetzet YESHA (Judea and Samaria Council) perverted and distorted and misled the anti-Disengagement campaign I’m now very suspicious.   And unfortunately it’s a good thing I read the names.. They are all from the government coalition, at least almost all.

Now, if you remember correctly, I refused to vote for any political party that campaigns that it wants to be in the coalition.  I feel it necessary that in the Israeli system there must be a Right opposition We don’t have one anymore.  Arieh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari didn’t pass the threshold, the minimum votes needed to get a couple of Knesset seats.

NRP aka Bayit Yehudi-Jewish Home and Likud kept campaigning that they needed to be in the coalition to influence the government.  Nu, they’re in and what influence do they have?  Nada, nothing zilch!  What a waste of votes!  So now they’re calling for a giant rally to kvetch that although they got what they want they still don’t have any real power. They’re complaining that Bibi doing what he said he would or wouldn’t do…

What do they really want form us?  They got your votes!  They didn’t get mine.  Now they are where they asked to be.  And what happened.  They were used.  They were used?  No, YOU WERE USED!.  All of you who voted for NRP and Likud were used to puff up Bibi!!.  And I don’t believe for one instant that we’d be in this mess if Likud and NRP weren’t in power.  Bibi in the opposition would be the fiery mother lion keeping Shelly and Tsipi in their places, far from the pressure and influence of Obama and Kerry.

If  Strook, Hotobelli, Katz etc really cared, they would leave the coalition and form an opposition from the Right.  And if they had really, really cared about the Land of Israel, they would have united with Eldad and Ben-Ari and run as a large opposition party explain that their role would be to safeguard the Land of Israel from the Knesset.

In the coalition they are in a noose aka “coalition discipline.” They must vote with the government or they lose their “company cars.”

When it comes to politicians I’m an awful cynic, sorry.   I have more to do than to listen to their platitudes and empty words.

G-d must save us, because the humans in charge are wasting their free will and going the wrong way
