Inside Source: Netanyahu to Uproot Thousands of Jews

Friday, February 28th, 2014

According to information acquired by Makor Rishon from sources connected to the Kerry-led “peace negotiations,” Israel is set to uproot Jews if an agreement is signed.

The source claims that settlements in Judea and Samaria will be divided into three types: those that will remain under Israeli sovereignty; those who will be place under Palestinian Authority rule under a special arrangement; and those that will be uprooted.

The source claims there are still big gaps between the positions on both sides, and Netanyahu is against uprooting Jews, which is why the prime minister working to minimize the number of Jews that would be expelled under any agreement. Nevertheless, should an agreement be signed, a few thousands Jews will certainly be forcibly expelled from their Judea and Samaria homes.

The Prime Minister’s office responded to the report saying it was a lie, and that the Prime Minister has no intention of uprooting any Israeli or any Jewish town.

On Wednesday this week, US Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters “his” Middle East peace deal will not be achieved by the April deadline. And at least one high level Palestinian official has told AFP a week ago that Kerry’s ideas could not be the basis of any acceptable framework. And so, it’s possible the Makor Rishon story was a plant from a right wing source, to fan the flames of resistance to a deal in Israel.

Back in 2005, Netanyahu voted with the Sharon government to deport some 10,000 Jews from their Gaza and northern Samarian homes.

 

An Ambushed Bennett Shoots Back and Scores

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

During the Q&A session of an election panel discussion at the Ono Academic College, Naftali Bennett, head of the Bayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home) party, was ambushed by the head of the college’s Student Union, who demanded that Bennett sign a statement that he [Bennett] would not refuse orders to expel Jews from their homes.

Bennett had set off a storm when he answered on Nissim Mishal’s show that he would be personally incapable of following an order to uproot a Jew, or an Arab, from their home. Following that statement, and the subsequent attacks from the Likud party, Bennett’s party spiked upwards in the polls.

At first Bennett tried to sidestep the ambush a number of times, including answering that the whole question is hypothetical.

But holding the paper in hand, which he demanded Bennett sign, the Student Union head refused to back down, at which point Bennett got up and said, “I will not be pressured or threatened.”

Bennett walked out of the panel, but not before taking one final parting shot when he announced, “Every single Israeli party must sign a statement that they won’t expel Jews from their homes.”

And upon hearing that, the audience broke out in loud applause.

Can we say “Kol HaKavod”?
